Easy image conversion

Convert images to JPEG format with this intuitive program.

We see a lot of photo conversion programs, and most of them are of approximately the same quality, neither outstanding nor awful. JPG/JPEG Photo Converter is another such program, solidly in the middle of a pack of programs that neither impress nor disappoint.

The program's interface is quite basic, consisting of one screen that contains all of the program's features. This application does allow for a fair amount of customization, and is perhaps a bit more feature-intensive than other photo converters. Users can set the output width and size, adjust the quality, and rotate and flip the image. The program also allows users to add text to an image, including options to adjust the position, size, color, and font. Everything about the program is intuitive, and the program's built-in Help file, though brief, is adequate. Perhaps our only complaint about JPG/JPEG Photo Converter is to be found within its name; although it handles a wide variety of source file formats, all roads lead to JPEG. We've seen similar programs that offer more options for output formats, and in that regard, this program is a bit of a one-trick pony. But users who find themselves needing to convert images to JPEG and JPEG only will find that this program meets their needs just fine.

JPG/JPEG Photo Converter is free to try, but the trial version puts a watermark on its output. The program installs a desktop icon without asking but uninstalls cleanly. We recommend this program to all users.
