Image Converter

Features

  • Ease of Use: Immediately after you have added the images to be processed, you will see the first results and the first images are ready to be saved. Nevertheless, many more self-explaining setting options are available. If that is not enough, look at the extensive help section.
  • Batch Processing: It can be worked on any number of images at the same time. The images can be easily added to the program, by being dragged from any folder of your computer in the processing list. Additionaly, it is also possible to open single images or to search in folders (optionally with a customized filter to search for special file formats). After adding the images, only one click on "Convert" is necessary to apply all settings to all images. The settings are enabled only by clicking on them in the box "Actions" on the upper right.
  • Preview: Without destroying the original image, you will see the effect of your settings in the preview box immediately after selecting an option. With the keyboard shortcut F7, the preview can be enabled or disabled, so the changes can be directly compared with the original image. In addition, on slow computers, it is an advantage to disable the preview function during changing the settings, because the preview is computationally intensive.
  • Change Image Size: You can resize the image to any customized size, it does not matter if the image is enlarged or reduced. It is possible to keep or alter the proportions or to respect portrait and landscape orientation.
  • Rotate and Flip: The image can be flipped vertically or horizontally, or rotated by an angle.
  • Color Changes: Among other color changes, it is possible to adapt the colors red, green and blue, to make a gamma-correction of the image, to apply a color reduction to any number of colors or to invert the image (negative image).
  • Contrast, Brightness and Saturation: With a simple slider you can enhance or reduce the contrst, brightness and saturation of an image.
  • Blur and Sharpness: Independent from each other, it is possible to blur or sharpen the images in an arbitrary intensity and in the modes "Gausian" and "Average". By sharpening resized images, the quality can be improved.
  • Crop and Cut: You can cut off as many pixels as you want from a side of your choice. This makes it possible to remove certain parts of the image.
  • Paste Watermark or other Images: Easily a watermark or any other image can be added to the original image. You can choose freely, how large the watermark should be (for example full-size, size of the original image, custom size) and on which position the watermark should be pasted (for example center or with a certain distance from a side). Also the transpareny of the watermark can adjusted freely. At a high level of transparency you can see the watermark barely, at a low level of transparency or with no transparency, the watermark seems to be copied in the original image. Thus it is possible to add a logo in the picture, for example if you want to publish it on a website. Furthermore, it is possible to use a transparent color that is not copied from the watermark.
  • Add Text to Images: It is possible to write every possible Text (also Unicode or special characters) on a images on any position. The font, the position, the size and the color can be user-defined.
  • Draw a Frame around the Image: With this function it is possible to draw a frame in a customized color and width around the original image. The frame can either be painted over the original image or the original image can be enlarged for the frame.
  • Order of Actions: You can adjust freely, in which order all of the functions are carried out. Try it, the effect will be another one.
  • Formats: In the current version of the image converter over 30 file formats are supported in which the images can be opened or saved. So it is also possible to convert an image from one format to another. For a list of the supported image formats, see the section formats.
  • Get Images from Clipboard: After selecting the option "Get Images from Clipboard", you only have to copy an image to your clipboard to process and save this image immediately.
  • Saving of the File List: all loaded files can be easily stored and loaded. So, you can define a group of files, on which you can go on working again and again.
  • Shortcuts: If you want, you can link the Image Converter mit arbitrary files and folders or show the program in the context menu "Send to". With this, it is possible to open files and folders directly in the Image Converter. More information on this topic, you can get on the page Shortcuts.
  • Save Configuration: With one click you can save the current configuration (all settings) to load them again later. Additionaly you can save a configuration that loads automatically at startup. So if you always edit images with the same options, you do not have to set them again and again everytime you start the software. The configuration files (*.bkg) can be directly associated with the program, so you only need to click on one of this files to open the image converter with the appropriate settings.
  • Profiles: To be able to access directly to specific settings or profiles, we offer you on this page some filters such as sepia or black and white that you can open with the Image Converter or in the Image Converter directly. Some profiles you can download for free in the profiles page and you can also create your own profiles with the program itself.
  • Save Configuration on Exit: If you want, you can set the Image Converter to save all settings or a number of selected settings on exit, so that you can go on with your work at the same position you have finished, when starting the application for the next time.
  • Individual View: Of course you can customize the program at any time according to your needs. It is both possible to show all important windows like input, preview, actions and storage options in the main window at one time as well as make a custom selection. With the small X on each window in the top right corner, you can close the same, so that the other windows are larger. You can alway access to the so-minimized windows with only one click, using the buttons in the lower left of the main window.
  • Saving Options: The original image can be overwritten, you can choose a new folder or filename or you can save in a different image format. When choosing a new filename, you can use some constants, which make it possible to number the images or to use the old filename in addition with some other strings. How this works is explained in detail in the help section and the tutorials.
  • Unicode Filenames: Both, filenames and folders with unicode characters are fully supported when saving and opening images. So, for example, you can save your images with Cyrillic letters or other special characters outside the ANSI range.
  • Other Settings: Behind this, there are many other configuration options in the software which can simplify your work. For example, the background and frame of the preview image can be changed so that you can assess the effects of the changed image in another context.
  • Monitor Folder: If you want you can directly monitor a folder so that the Image Converter responds to changes in this folder. For example, when files are deleted or added, the file list in the Image Converter will be updatet automatically. This feature, inasmuch as desired, even works in subdirectories.
  • No bad investment: The Image Converter is also available in a freeware version, that corresponds to the full version except minor restrictions. You can test all the features in this version binding, before your decision to get the version without any restrictions. You can use this free version unlimited and pass it as often as you like.
  • No installation (portable Software): The program works without installation. This spares your Registry and you can immediately use it. Nevertheless it is possible to register the file extension (*.bkg) for configuration files, to open a configuration with a single mouse click. Of course this registration is not required to run the program and can any time be undone with the software.
