Back to basics

Resize, rename, and convert images with this well-designed program.

One of the most common problems that we encounter when evaluating software is cluttered, poorly designed interfaces. In this regard, Image Tuner is a breath of fresh air. This simple program lets you resize, rename, and convert images with an interface that's about as straightforward as it gets.

The program's design is clean and simple, with a handful of buttons across the top and a few drop-down menus on the side. It's quite easy to figure out how the program works, even if you've never used software of this sort before. You can select individual images or folders of images to work with, either by navigating to the images from within the program or by dragging and dropping them onto the program's interface. For resizing, Image Tuner offers a selection of preset sizes that are optimized for particular uses, such as Facebook or iPhone viewing, and you can enter custom sizes. Files can be converted between JPEG, PNG, BMP, TIFF, and GIF file formats. You can also rename files and add watermarks. An options menu lets you set the opacity of watermarks and control quality and compression for the various image formats. The program comes with a built-in Help file that's well-written and thorough. Image Tuner doesn't have any features that we haven't seen plenty of times in other programs, but it stands out from the crowd with its no-nonsense appearance and ease of use. And for that we love it.

Image Tuner installs and uninstalls without issues. We highly recommend this program to all users.
