Kigo Image Converter

CNET Editors' review

We frequently find ourselves needing to convert or resize images to e-mail to friends, post on blogs, or share on social networking Web sites. All the full-featured images editing programs can take care of these tasks, but we're sure we're not the only ones who don't want to launch a huge program for such a simple job. Kigo Image Converter is a lightweight program that makes quick work of image conversion and resizing, and offers a few extra features to boot.

The program's interface is plain and intuitive, and we had no trouble figuring out how to get started. Users simply select the image or images they want to work with, adjust the settings, and click Convert. Kigo Image Converter can convert images between the BMP, JPEG, PNG, TIF, PCX, TGA, J2K, and JPC formats. Users can also resize images, either by entering a size factor (.5, for example, resizes the images to 50 percent of its original size) or by entering the desired width and height. Kigo Image Converter also supports the addition of watermarks, either text or image, making it easy to protect batches of images from sticky-fingered viewers. The program's built-in Help file is brief but adequate. Overall, Kigo Image Converter didn't offer anything that we hadn't seen in numerous other image conversion programs, but it is a good choice for users looking for an effective, no-frills ways to convert and resize images.

Kigo Image Converter installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.

    "Ideal for conversion and resizing."

    August 8, 2009  |   By markhorney

    Version: Kigo Image Converter 2

    Pros

    you can convert your files and resize them like it says and you select more than 1 file to convert at a time between, jpg, bmp, gif....etc , you can also watermark your images to copyright protect them or just want advertise your site on each image.

    Cons

    However, for thoses who are looking to compress your pictures to reduce for easy 'file sizing' for thoses who have limited space on their site, this is not the program for you, that is the only that I and found with this program.

    Summary

    It's quick simple, ease of use for the average idiot, I give this, 4/5, rather good, but not brilliant, if they had a easy way of compressing the images so that it would save me webpace, I would of voted it 5/5, but 4/5 still just as good........thanks...

    "quick and easy"

    August 20, 2008  |   By jouwhoo

    Version: Kigo Image Converter 2

    Pros

    simple

    Cons

    the watermark image has to be the right size for the picture, so if it's not, you have to resize it, save it as a different name, and use it with the right size picture.

    "I've tried the rest, this is the best"

    June 3, 2008  |   By nantena

    Version: Kigo Image Converter 2

    Pros

    I downloaded every freeware program that I found with the keyword 'watermark,' and none of them had what I was looking for. This program is easy to use and very quick.

    Cons

    The only problems I had is that the watermark cannot be a .gif, in order to have transparency you must use .tif, and you cannot change the opacity or size of your watermark image.
