It is RARE for a download site to impress me. Very rare. But Softoxi.com has literally just blown me away! I’m quite frankly shocked with disbelief!
Their screenshot page for Photo Resizer INCLUDES A VIDEO SHOWING INSTALLATION AND HOW TO USE PHOTO RESIZER!
I received an email from Rainer Weiss, the editor at Softoxi, at a contact email address that I don’t use for PAD submissions, and when I checked, I saw that he had registered at the Super Simple web site. i.e. He went out of his way to email me at a properly monitored email address. Here’s the email:

The anti-virus reports are also on Softoxi’s main page for Photo Resizer and include avast! and Kaspersky.
To top it all off, all of this is on a Saturday too!
Softoxi lists Photo Resizer as “Ad supported”, which is perfectly fine and is something that I plan on addressing in great detail later.
But the point is, there are software sites out there that really put in a lot of effort. Knowing who they are is almost impossible, so I hope this helps people know about one of the good ones!

I also was surprised by their videos the first time I saw them… It’s pretty cool and unusual.
Very much. I was especially shocked as Photo Resizer is freeware, and there’s no opportunity for them to make any money off of an affiliate program.
The same happened to me – I submitted a few padfiles, and a day or two later they had made installation videos for my software.
What a really smashing idea – this will make softoxi stand out from the other download sites.
Very fast response, and a personal touch too.
