Editors' Review

GraphicConverter for Mac lets you create, edit, and convert all kinds of images, and it's compatible with hundreds of file formats. No matter what format your chosen file is coming from, or what you want to convert it to, you'll likely find the options you're looking for in this program.

Pros

Compatible formats: This app can accept files in 200 different formats, which gives you plenty of flexibility and ensures that you'll be able to work with whoever you have on hand. When it comes to conversion options, you can choose from one of 80 output formats as well, so no matter what you want to do with your converted files, you can be sure they'll be in the most convenient format.

Varied capabilities: In addition to conversions, this app will also let you create a new image file, or you can open and edit an existing one. Editing options include cropping, rotation, and the ability to adjust brightness, saturation, sharpness, and more. Batch conversions are also supported, and you can view previews of your files before completing the conversion process.

Cons

Too-basic interface: This program actually packs a lot of powerful features under the hood, but the interface can be deceptively basic at times, discouraging you from looking for the more advanced options. This can be a bonus for inexperienced users initially, but it will eventually lead to challenges or failure to take advantage of all the program has to offer.

Bottom Line

GraphicConverter for Mac provides a nice set of options for working with many different types and formats of files. While the interface's ease of use can be misleading, the power features are there if you know where to look. You can try out this program for free with some limitations on functionality, and the full purchase price is $39.95.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of GraphicConverter for Mac 9.3.

"Don't know -- can't access it."

May 25, 2014  |  By lrugolo

 |  Version: GraphicConverter 9.2.1

Pros

Don't know -- can't access it.

Cons

The Graphic Converter Specifications page at:
http://download.cnet.com/GraphicConverter/3010-2192_4-10057380.html?tag=contentBody;sideBar
clearly states that version 9.2.1 requires MacOSX 10.9, 10.8, 10.7 _OR_ 10.6. So I dl'd it to my OSX 10.6.8 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo iMac — But when it appeared in my Applications folder it was blocked with this message: "You can't use this version of the application GraphicConverter9 with this version of Mac OS X. You have Mac OS X 10.6.8. The application requires Mac X 10.7 or later."

THAT'S NOT WHAT IT SAYS IN THE SPECIFICATIONS PAGE !!!!

"Bad file or what?"

July 28, 2012  |  By wailes-steve

 |  Version: GraphicConverter 8.2

Pros

Not a clue. Can't seem to stop downloading yet.

Cons

The CNET site indicated 124.85MB upgrade to ver 8.2. Tech Tracker & my slow connection have downloaded over 750 MB, and still going, while I was out. What the h---?

Summary

I'm removing this from the tech tracker list... again... but it keeps restarting download anyway.
Good product in the past.

"Fantastic software! Works on Mac OS X 10.0 you said"

May 02, 2012  |  By TeVince

 |  Version: GraphicConverter 4.9.3

Pros

So many graphic types convertible without loss of quality!

Cons

This page doesn't download 4.9.3 as it says. If people want the new version that is easy, those of us who keep old computers working should be able to access 4.9.3 as advertised or are you false advertising?

Summary

Lempke is an angel, the software is heaven itself! Download.CNET is a fantastically useful function - please make version 4.9.3 available or stop listing this page (and a dozen other versions that you don't provide) at the top of google. Make it easy for me to get version 4.9.3 please. Thank you!

"Remains THE Master for Me for Graphics Manipulation"

January 21, 2012  |  By dgkanter

 |  Version: GraphicConverter 7.6.1

Pros

Truly the "Swiss Army Knife" for graphics. While it has far, far, more tools than for what I've, so far, found need--and when I do have a need, I've found it handled with ease by GraphicConverter. Also, the developer is very responsive to questions and, in the rare instance where I've found a problem, he has implemented a fix very promptly.

Cons

None for me.

"Excellent and I have been using GC for years."

January 20, 2012  |  By mortman1

 |  Version: GraphicConverter 7.6.1

Pros

Easy to use

Cons

In version 6 the Tool Box was attached to the window image, so if the window was moved the Tool Box moved with it. It was very convenient.

For whatever reason it wasn't incorporated into version 7

"You put up the wrong version again"

January 12, 2012  |  By gtrsteve

 |  Version: GraphicConverter 7.6

Pros

Great app. But wrong version.

Cons

N/A. I don't see any cons except that this link was wrong.

Summary

I had to go to the Lemke site to get the correct 7.6 version. This link downgraded me to 6.7.6.
