CNET Editors' review

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.

    "Amazing image converter with nice & easy user interface"

    September 23, 2009  |   By ilgaju

    Version: AZImage 2.3

    Pros

    Excellent quality/size conversion ratio. Ideal if you want to send your photos by email, or put them on the web. Easy upload of the converted photos to the Google Picasa account.

    Cons

    You can add the same photos more then once to the conversion list resulting in lost of processing time.

    Summary

    I like the product because you can quickly resize and convert large amounts of image files.
    The quality of the converted image files is excellent for the size reduction. You can save conversion formats and convert images from the right-click Windows Explorer menu.
