AZImage is a basic image converter that lets users quickly resize and convert images. The program's ease of use and a few cool extra features make this a good choice for conversion jobs of all sizes.
The program's interface is fairly intuitive and attractive, with three tabs that represent the steps in the conversion process. In the first, users select the images they want to convert; images can be selected individually, or users can select entire folds of images for batch conversions. In the next tab, users select the format, size, and destination for the new images. The last tab is the conversion tab, and although converting the images is as easy as clicking the Start button, this tab loses points for its messy layout; fortunately, aside from the Start button, there's nothing really important here. We tried several file conversions and found that the program worked quickly to give us the results we expected. The program lets users save images as BMPs, GIFs, PNGs, TIFFS, and three different qualities of JPGs. We especially liked the fact that the program lets users automatically upload images to Picasa, although this feature appeared to be disabled in the trial version. The built-in Help file was detailed and fairly well-written.
AZImage has a 15-day trial period. It installs politely but leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users seeking a quick and easy way to resize and convert images.
AZImage is a program to effectively convert between most common image formats (jpeg, gif, tif, or raw). It can process large amounts of files, resize, apply effects and correct quality on the fly.
