Editors' review

ImBatch processes, edits, and converts image files in batches or individually. This easy-to-use freeware also adds watermarks, edits EXIF data, and runs scripts, too. It handles more than 30 image formats; not just common formats like JPEG, GIF, and TIFF but also FAX, G3N, G3F, XIF, ICB, WDP, and other uncommon formats. You can create, save, and load Tasks to process large batches using the same settings. Recent updates include Windows 8 readiness and improvements to the watermarking and crop tools.

With its dark gray tones and highlights, ImBatch's user interface resembles a media player; a nice change from gray Explorer boxes. The interface is split down the center between a file list with thumbnails, a drag-and-drop panel, and optional preview pane on the left, and a Task panel on the right. Toggling on the Preview Pane feature not only displays a preview thumbnail but also a larger pop-up preview. The Configuration button opened a tabbed settings sheet offering skins and more, but we didn't see a Help file on the interface. We did find a Help folder with a well-illustrated, PDF-based Quick Start guide in ImBatch's Program folder, though. But it's not difficult to just start using ImBatch, which is what we did. We tested the waters by rounding the corners on a single image, which involved loading an image and creating a Task, including selecting width and height of the rounding in pixels. We could save output files as individual images or add them to PDFs, too. When we were ready, we pressed the big "Start" arrow, and ImBatch processed our image quickly. Next we added a folder and created some more complex Tasks (more than 20 are possible, including Resize, Grayscale, Soft Shadow, Frame, Watermark, Watermark Text, and Set and Remove EXIF/IPTC Tag) and again ImBatch rose to the occasion.

We've tried lots of freeware image processing tools, and most of them do a decent job. ImBatch is a bit nicer than many we've seen, and it has plenty of options without overwhelming less-experienced users. If you're looking for a reliable batch image processor, check out ImBatch.

    Great tool for the ones who have many images to process with the similar operations

    "Its Okay, nothing special or flashy"

    June 13, 2013   |   By ImALittleBear

    Version: ImBatch 1.6

    Pros

    Handled my large amount of photos rather quickly , barely a hassle to do so, no slowdown or significant performance drop in my computer.

    Cons

    That interface has to go! Its the most unorganized piece of crud I've ever worked with. Sometimes I have to double check to make sure I have the right setting to work with. Configuration does not offer much in the way of customization in my opinion. Should be skinnable.

    "Horrible Interface"

    June 13, 2013   |   By craigminah

    Version: ImBatch 1.6

    Pros

    Batch processing

    Cons

    Horrific interface

    Summary

    This is a capable program but illustrates why I dislike a lot of Windows software. What is up with this interface? Ugly and non-standard so it went in the bin.

    March 25, 2013

    Pros

    it can process several tasks at the same time! For example, I've resized and stamped my photos with watermark in one go.

    Cons

    Not found at the time

    Summary

    highly recommended software for those who need to process a bunch of images with the same task
