Editors' Review

Digital photography is a fun hobby for many computer users. One of the great pleasures is tinkering with all the elements to create a perfect photo. 36-Image Converter offers all these tools, plus a unique way to convert your file types. Less experienced users will need to spend some time getting familiar with the numerous conversion options, but the basic photo editing tools are very easy to use.

This freeware program has a unique interface that doesn't attempt to mimic more successful programs. 32-Image Converter has a black interface with a sleek series of icons at the top. Each opens a small menu that gives you a wealth of control. One icon lets users to open pictures and save current work. The next icon is where its name comes from. Here you will find a choice of 36 file formats for saving your images. The other icons feature standard Paintbrush/Photoshop commands for cutting, moving, coloring, and applying effects to photographs.

The program works well as a photo alteration tool, functioning in a way that will be familiar to those who have done this type of work on other programs. Where 32-Image Converter is confusing is the manner it asks you to convert your picture into one of the many file forms. There are a series of check boxes that don't seem to affect how a picture is saved. A long look at the Help menu is recommended for anyone attempting to use this program other than for its photo altering capabilities, but the capability to edit and convert image files will appeal to nearly any digital photography enthusiast.

"Typical windows overly complicated software"

January 23, 2012  |  By The Printer

 |  Version: 36-Image Converter 4.6.1.98

Pros

none, well OK, it did uninstall

Cons

A learning curve steeper than Mt. Everest

Summary

All I wanted was to be able to convert from one format to another. Should have been easy. It wasn't. Why oh why doesn't software comparable to Thorston Lemke's GraphicConverter for the Mac exist for windows?

"Converts one file at a time"

May 31, 2011  |  By charlessmall18

 |  Version: 36-Image Converter 4.6.1.98

Pros

Converts virtually any format to any other.

Cons

This program does not have a "batch" mode. You can convert only one files at a time.

Summary

It's free and is perfectly adequate for converting the occasional file, one at a time. If you handle a lot of files, find another program that has a "batch" mode.

"Requires a certain unspecified video mode."

February 28, 2011  |  By skaizun

 |  Version: 36-Image Converter 4.6.1.98

Pros

Absolutely none.

Cons

Could not get it to run using my current video settings.

Summary

It installed and said it would run, but I had to the Exit button to start that process (i.e., it didn't say to do so). Then, it showed a very hard to see menu with a black background asking me if I wanted to default to it instead of my applications (the explanation was understandable, but hard to view). I deselected all of the choices (i.e., execute my existing program to display a GIF, rather than have "36-image..." do so). Then it showed its start-splash pop-up, and then an error pop-up, claiming that my video card wasn't adequate, and that I should change video settings, which are very low resolution on my Win Vista SP2 system (oddly, the splash pop-up said that low rez was required!). So, I tried two higher resolutions, and even 16-bit resolutions, but it still complained, so I nuked the program.

"Includes spyware!"

December 23, 2009  |  By RIckjen1

 |  Version: 36-Image Converter 4.6.1.98

Pros

I was lucky that I didn't install it.

Cons

According to the latest version of MalwareBytes, the installation file includes "Adware.Eshoper" spyware. Once I saw that, I deleted the file.

Summary

So either Malwarebytes is wrong, or CNET doesn't check files as well as they think.

Pros

I never got that far.

Cons

It can't open and work with anything larger than 1004 x 698.

Summary

This software is useless to me if I can't open my pictures, zoom and fix flaws. BOO.
