After I wrote some utilities for my friends, co-workers and family they encouraged me to share them more broadly. Here are two most popular:
will resize all image files in the selected folder into a new subfolder ..\Small for e-mail sharing or embedding into PowerPoint presentations, Word docs, etc… If you embed a lot of pictures this app will help you keep your Office files sizes under control. About 10+ times reduction in the raw picture file size w/o loss of quality.
WinForms application (or new in browser Silverlight version of XLStylesTool
) is my answer to the annoying “Too many formats” or “Microsoft Excel can’t paste data” messages that come up in Excel and sometimes destroy hours of work. ReadMe file is enclosed. Designed to work with OpenXML file formats (i.e., XL2007 and higher). Read next blog post
for technical details around OS/.Net runtime requirements necessary to run the app, if you want to know what causes the error messages, how people use XLStylesTool and how the various app settings can stabilize your file. Update for Office 2003 users:
see Christian’s comment below.
