This intuitive program makes it easy to convert your images to a different file format. However, we were somewhat annoyed by the various product pushes that come with it, and we're not sure why the publisher touts it as a free program because it's limited to a 14-day trial period.

Pixillion Image Converter has a very simple and straightforward user interface. Self-explanatory menu commands run along the top of the window and allow you to quickly add files and folders and configure conversion options. The program also includes a Help feature, but it's crowded by a long list of the developer's other products. Oddly, the interface includes a mysterious Toolbox button that, when we clicked it, downloaded another program to "Find tasks according to what software you are using." But when we clicked on a specific task, it prompted the program to download yet another program. The whole process was very annoying. Still, we were able to quickly add our files, select an output folder and format, and flip and resize our image, all by using the Output effects menu. The Converter Options menu let us configure our overwrite options in the event that a destination file already exists, such as overwriting the file or aborting the operation altogether.

Pixillion Image Converter is limited to a 14-day trial period, despite the publisher's claim that it's a "free image format converter." It installed a desktop icon without our permission but uninstalled cleanly. Despite our caveats, we recommend this program for all users.

"Good program, Bad Support."

August 30, 2010  |  By DMALTMAN

 |  Version: Pixillion Image Converter 2.22

Pros

Does a good job of converting the image format. This is a image converter not a resizer........

Cons

Good program, Bad support from company on paid version. More detail in summary page......

Summary

I had ran the free program for a few months and decided to purchase the product. I had done several upgrades and repairs to the computer which required a reinstall of the OS. One was because of a defective hard drive and one was due to a virus and another done because of a bad mother board. NCH only allows the install of the product a few times per year and each time the program is re-installed it contacts there server and sends the computer signature to them to activate the program so any mother board changes or any changes that there server feels is different enough will flag the program. In my case NCH claims that the program was installed on three computers which is not the case. The first few times I did not back up there program like they suggested and that was my fault but come to find out It would not make any difference anyways. The last update I reloaded there back up and it still contacted there server and rejected the activation codes that I had paid for. After several e-mails back and forth and by the way you can not talk to a person at NCH over the phone, I am now stuck with the free version that I paid for with no resolve of this problem. They have been useless and also have my money as well. I am now looking at using AVS for there version of this software for next time??

"slightly disappointed"

July 24, 2010  |  By stephenmweber

 |  Version: Pixillion Image Converter 2.22

Pros

application was easy to uninstall!

Cons

My expectations may have been out of line. I thought I was downloading something that could resize a gif and maintain its sharpness. I had better luck in word than I did using this app. Again I may have expected something the product doesn't do.

Summary

Don't download if you want to resize a picture. You'll need something else. Its just a basic image converted.
