Editors' Review

+
This all-purpose image editor offers high-end editing tools and support for several image formats, without the high price tag of professional software. GraphicConverter can import and export almost any image format. It offers a simple, yet powerful, set of image-editing tools, batch-conversion capabilities, and compatibility with Photoshop plug-ins. You also can create a slide show of your images. The publisher actively updates the program in response to bug reports and requests for feature enhancements, which explains its longevity as a Mac image editor. The nag screen in the unregistered version can get annoying, which just encourages you to buy the full program. Though there certainly are better image-editing solutions out there, none offer as much value as GraphicConverter.

"useful, but flawed"

September 01, 2005  |  By DeusExMachina

 |  Version: GraphicConverter X 5.7

Pros

Works well at doing what its a name implies, converting between formats. Its cataloging and slideshow features are also useful.

Cons

But as an editor, it falls flat (as in layers.) It has many powerful features, but often one gets ALMOST the look one wants then runs into a brick wall. In particular, its decidedly non-standard and non-intuitive implementation of transparency colours makes using it cumbersome.

"Ideal for exporting pictures in different formats or scaling/formatting"

August 16, 2005  |  By tarun

 |  Version: GraphicConverter X 5.7

Pros

This program reads and writes graphical formats like no others program. It also us very usefull when you want to scale, crop of edit the colours of a picture. I use it already many years and is perfect. It also replaces Photoshop until you want to edit like a professional. Then Photoshop is better for editing (but also more expensive and lacking the export facilities of GraphicConverter.

Cons

Not 100% as good as Photoshop is editing the content of pictures (but good enough for non-professionals).

"An excellent product"

August 16, 2005  |  By Mophilly

 |  Version: GraphicConverter X 5.7

Pros

The download was quick. The DMG image opened without a hitch and the simple "drag to Applications" is about as simple as it gets.

The browser is excellent and easy to use.

Cons

None.

"Great program to work with. It's simple and rather straightforward."

August 16, 2005  |  By The Commissioner

 |  Version: GraphicConverter X 5.7

Pros

I like its ability to open almost any type of graphic document and then be able to convert it to a more universally recognized format like a jpeg.

"UNDOWLOADABLE STUFF"

August 13, 2005  |  By Professor_NEGATIVE

 |  Version: GraphicConverter X 5.7

Pros

The publisher should first set his own house in order before posting the software anywhere. My first horrible experience.

Cons

Only cons. High time such publishers made their "softwares" downloadable.

ONE STAR
