Editors' review

The hassle of rotating, resizing, renaming, and otherwise adjusting digital images before sharing them online is sometimes enough to make us leave our images languishing on our memory cards. Fortunately, there are plenty of free programs that can simplify this process. Digital Image Tool is a sleek application that lets you make basic formatting changes to your images and looks good doing it.

The program's interface is done in attractive shades of gray, with an intuitive and contemporary layout. You can select batches of images to work with, and the program's major features--resize, watermark, tag images, and rename--are arranged in easily accessed tabs. Everything about the program is pretty self-explanatory, but mousing over any feature displays a description in a small pane at the bottom of the interface. The program does contain some tiny white text on dark backgrounds, which could be problematic for users who don't see well, but this is the only real drawback we could find. Digital Image Tool let us easily crop our images, add custom watermarks and tags, convert between four different image formats, and carry out other actions. The program doesn't have any features that we haven't seen numerous times before, but it's a useful suite of tools in a nice-looking package. We recommend it to anyone looking for a sleek program that can get images ready to be shared or stored.

Digital Image Tool installs a desktop icon without asking but uninstalls cleanly.

    "would not display properly with my low-res screen"

    June 09, 2010   |   By skaizun

    Version: Digital Image Tool 2.0

    Pros

    couldn't use, so "none"

    Cons

    would not display properly with my low-res screen

    Summary

    It is unfortunate that most software is designed without considering the needs of the users, especially in how the software is displayed. It's one thing to have a pop-up indicate that the screen resolution required is higher than the user has it set to, which, at the very least, gives the user ample "warning" to change the resolution, even if only for the duration of that program. But, it's quite another to display an oversized screen, expecting the user to already be using a higher resolution (which is not for people with low or poor vision), such that the user can't even close the window without having to start the task manager to kill the process, which is what I was forced to do.

    For the record, I have only one program that requires high resolution, but 90% of the screen displays properly, so I can live with it, whereas, with Digital Image Tool, I couldn't even find a way to close it without having to resort to the task manager.

    Maybe it works great in high res, but I'm sure I wouldn't be able to see it, properly.

    Maybe it does what I needed (I wanted software that would rotate an image to any angle, not just 90 degree increments), but I'll never know.

    Programmers need to make sure their software runs on at least two previous versions of the operating system and/or browser and/or low and high resolution. Is that so hard to do?

    "Image Preview & Batch Apply makes this a stand out tool"

    January 25, 2010   |   By WardChristman

    Version: Digital Image Tool 2.0

    Pros

    Best batch cropping tool i found so far - the visual elements makes it so much easier than guessing trial and error of tools like FastStone.

    Cons

    Saves JPG at a much lower DPI, don't see a way to keep same DPI (not sure if it matters actually?). Does not save original EXIF data like tags.

    Summary

    This company knows how to code, it's an elegant program and if you don't need to save your EXIF data this is one of the easiest programs out there and the price is right!

    "Perfect for My Needs"

    November 04, 2008   |   By scottsf9410

    Version: Digital Image Tool 1.3

    Pros

    Performed exactly what I needed to do. I am an event photographer and I needed to attach logos to photographs. Paint Shop Pro and Photoshop Elements won't exactly do this in batch. This will.

    Cons

    Once you take 10 minutes to figure this software out, and the kinda odd arrangement of controls, there aren't too many faults. You get a prieview of the result before you batch, to check your settings. It should have a way to save diff. settings.

    Summary

    To attach logos or watermarks, this software can use transparent png's. So if you want to make say 500 x 750 pixel portraits and landscapes, you make TWO transparent png templates in PS or PSP for portrait in 500 x 750 px canvas size and another landscape 750 x 500. You move and resize your gif/jpg logos in the 2 templates and put the logos where you want: bottom, top, middle ( I used 2 logos, one Bottom left, another bottom right). Save as TWO different transparent png's, landscape 750x 500 and portrait 500x750. Then in DI Tool 1.3, you can specify a custom template. This will be different for Landscape and Portrait, so make sure you retrieve your templates depending on Port/Land photos. Also make sure you cropped in 5 x 7.5 ratio. The part I think could be improved; if the developers had a feature where you could save your settings and have them in a drop down menu. Because you have to switch your DI 1.3 settings depending on Land/Port. Make a folder called "Landscapes" and put all your landscapes in there (and put the Portraits in another "portrait" folder. Select "Landscape" folder files as your input. Specify your Landscape png as your template, selecting it on the far right of the 3 templates. "Fit length" 750. Batch process. Go to your Portraits folder, make sure you select "fit height" (750) and change to your Portrait png under "settings." You can preview first to make sure you have your settings right. And you can also change file names, by adding prefixes as you batch. The png templates took me 20 minutes to make, and moving 400 photos to Land/Port folders then batching in DI 1.3 took less than 10 min. The next batch I do will take me 5. I spent hours in the adobe help areas looking for a way to do this, and I am ecstatic that I found some software that actually does well what PSE and PSP SHOULD do. Quality of the finished product was excellent, photo and logos remained sharp and unstretched. Also consistent, each logo is in the same place when you browse through the photos. I specified 100 on the jpg quality scale, and 0% on the logo opacity to make them solid. This gave the finished photos the look I wanted. I will use this software also for opaque watermarks on future projects. Besides suggesting a "save settings as" option to the developer, I would also suggest a larger window area with clearer function layout. These are small gripes for how much time I wasted trying to do the same thing through Adobe PSE or PSP. Even my lame TEXT watermarks in PSE weren't the same size on the finished pictures (since I crop and then batch resize at the end). This product resized all my random 5 x 7.5 format crops, and delivered a consistent size logo on them. And this is free. Someone tell Adobe and Corel, or just maybe throw some cold water in their face. BTW, this worked on both my XP and Vista systems.

    "needs improvement"

    August 20, 2008   |   By jouwhoo

    Version: Digital Image Tool 1.3

    Pros

    it's a simple tool once you get used to it, but it's complicated at first. I like being able to watermark the pictures with my own image.

    Cons

    It automatically resizes the photos, so you have to put in the size that you want it to be, which means if you don't want it to change, you have to put the current size.

    "Wonderful, simple tool"

    July 01, 2008   |   By Zedd Zorander

    Version: Digital Image Tool 1.3

    Pros

    I love this tool. It does exactly what I need - it does batches, puts watermarks on the pictures and saves them in a separate folder with a batch name! And you can control the quality of the batched image! It's like it was made with me in mind! And it's super fast, too! I did 30 images in less than a minute.

    Cons

    The fact that it is so hard to find a good program among all the others in the list.

    Version: Digital Image Tool 1

    Pros

    It does what it says on the tin - unlike many other higher rated so called free ones on here!

    I was looking for software that does batch watermarking and this does it very well indeed - and did I mention that is free! - thank you
