View images and convert large sets with Image Converter Pro for Mac

Convert multiple photos quickly on your Mac with Image Converter Pro for Mac.

Converting multiple pictures in a batch can be messy and can take more time than it should. Image Converter Pro for Mac allows you to convert sets of photos from one type to another, optionally setting the quality for some formats. It is a small application designed to allow quick batch conversion, but it doesn't feel like a mature and fully capable app.

With Image Converter Pro you can simply drag and drop your pictures into the main window and they are ready to be processed. Doing so on the dock icon will directly convert them using your last settings, with no further interaction needed. The user interface is not really appealing and contains four strange-looking tab buttons on the left. What's a little confusing is that no feedback is given in the interface. Some buttons don't seem to work properly, as they don't confirm an action has been triggered. You have to go check in your export folder to see if something happened there -- clearly not an ideal workflow for an app that aims at fast and easy batch conversions. Another issue that could prove to be a deal breaker for most users looking for batch conversion is that no resize function of any sort is available. The inability to export a single picture without a watermark in the demo version is also a little harsh for a software that packs only a few options. We would have preferred to be limited in size or number of pictures before being reminded this is a paid software.

Image Converter Pro for Mac doesn't seem too efficient and may leave both occasional and pro users underpowered. Perhaps this will be improved with the upcoming updates.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Image Converter Pro for Mac 1.0.2.
