Image Converter Plus is a professional image converter for the Windows operating system that supports a large amount of different image formats including popular formats like jpg or png but also lesser used formats like raw image formats from various digital cameras and even Adobe Photoshop pdf files.
The main interface of the program is divided into a profile and photos section. The program uses conversion profiles to convert the photos and images that are loaded into it. About a dozen profiles are already available after installation ranging from converting photos to jpeg thumbnails, true color png images or black and white tiff images.
Each profile consists of a set of operations, a target image format, a folder where the converted images are saved and file name manipulations. The option to create new profiles and alter existing ones is a very powerful way of configuring photo converting operations that need to be processed regularly. All it actually takes to convert photos with a specific profile would be to load the photos, select the profile and hit the start button in the software.
The most powerful part are the operations that can be added to each profile. It is possible to add one or multiple operations to the profile which ranges from resizing and rotating images to adding watermarks, color effects or profiles, page filters or brightness and contrast changes.
The strength of this is the ability to use multiple image converting and manipulation operations. It is for example possible to reduce all loaded photos by 50%, add a watermark image to the lower left using alpha blend and remove meta tags if those are stored in the original photos.
The program comes with a preview option to preview the profiles before they are saved and used.
Image Converter Plus supports batch conversion of images that are loaded into the interface. It is actually possible to load images or folders containing images into the application. The photo tab will display all photos and images that have been loaded into the program. Each image conversion can be previewed individually before all images are converted using the settings of the selected profile.
Another interesting option for professional use is command line support so that the program can be used in batch files.
Image Converter Plus is a very powerful image converter that supports lots of image formats and operations that can enhance, change and convert images into an output format the user wants it to be in. The use of profiles make the image conversions less time consuming after the first initial configuration.Advertisement
