Image Tools, Picture Editing, Manipulation Software

Picture editing and image manipulation tools are often the best option for photographers and computer users who want to process multiple images in short time. Image Tools is no exception to that rule. The free Windows software can batch process all images that are loaded into the program interface.

Pictures are added via the Main > Add Images menu which opens the folder browser. All images of the selected folder are automatically added to the program. Images in subdirectories are automatically included as well. The images are then processed and displayed as thumbnails in the interface. Users need to be cautious in this step as the program can run out of memory if to many large sized images are added.

The core features of Image Tools are all available under the Process menu at the top of the application window.

The following options are available:

  • Channels filtering
  • Convert
  • Crop
  • Deborder
  • Flip / Rotate
  • Resize
  • Watermark
  • To Grayscale / Negative / Sepia

The user begins the process by selecting one, multiple or all images with the mouse or the Select all button. All selected images are then processed by the application after an image manipulation option has been selected from the Process menu. Configuration begins with the selection of the output folder before available options are displayed in an extra window.

Image Tools is a handy tool for users who want to make one change to multiple images.

A few aspects are not perfect on the other hand. The program lacks previews of the selected change and does not contain options to make multiple changes at once. Users who would like to resize and watermark images would have to load the original images, select resize, load the resized images and select watermark from the options to complete the process.

Image Tools is a free image manipulation software for 32-bit and 64-bit editions of the windows operating system. The application is portable on systems that have the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 installed.

      I was looking for a portable application just like this one. The cavete is this app uses .Net Framework 4 Client Profile, which brings havoc to some applications on my XP Sp3.
