Editors' reviewThis timesaving application resizes, converts, and adds a few effects to images in batch mode. PhotoWorker's simple main window leads users through all processes via logically arranged buttons. After choosing images, you select how large you'd like them to be before specifying output format, including PNG, JPEG, BMP, GIF, and TIFF. You can add a shadow effect to the photos, tweaking such parameters as color, blur, and opacity. PhotoWorker also lets you overlay one image on another as a watermark, though we missed the ability to add text. Editing tools are minimal, but you can add simple frames and crop shots in batch mode. This program seems like it will be most valuable to site designers who often work with large volumes of photographs.
PhotoWorker resizes and converts multiple image files at one time. It supports JPEG, GIF, BMP, TIFF, PNG, TGA, PSD, and many more file types. It's very easy to create thumbnails of your photos, extract multiple images from TIFF files, and convert image file types and bit depths. The program also can create shadows for a better look in Web pages, or overlay another image to add watermarks. You have full control over the images you're going to generate with a rich set of conversion options, and because the program is batch-based, it can save you a lot of time without tedious manual editing.
