Windows Explorer- Send to menu - resize images

Hi Guys

In windows 7 -  Explorer I can preview a file - when I right click on the image I can choose to rotate the file - if I choose SendTo --> Mail - I am given the option to resize the picture - how can I make that choice come up on the menu like I can Rotate ?

I've seen an implementation of this previously but cant locate the fix - I believe it was a registry tweak - and I recall that in windows XP there was a powertoy to do it.

rrjmin0, thanks for the input ... you're right - both those items are related to what I was referring to and I'll give Image Resizer a go ...

However, is there a tweak where the native image resizer can be invoked rather than SendTo-->Email and resize ? I notice when you select a series of pictures to send by email it does them as a batch so the functonality must be there somewhere ...

is there a tweak
Not that I'm aware of

Image Resizer 3 for Windows lets you right-click on a picture (or multi-select a group of pictures), choose Resize Pictures from the resulting context menu, and then choose a resizing preset or, new to this version, a custom size.

I had been using my email to resize my files and then send them to myself. But when I realised that this small app was available I decided to use it and save some Download / Upload charges..

I ultimately accepted ImageResider as it does what I want. The B Grade, is because I didnt get the tweak I was after ... Thanks for the help rrjmin0 and the input of others.
