"Not as intuitive as could be"

Can do a number of graphic edits most other photo programs don't do.


Not as intuitive as could be. Shows just how much further developed Photoshop is, by comparison.


Could take a few pointers of simplification of task from Photoshop, without the corresponding price.

"'Bout time to update the reviews here"

 |  Version: GraphicConverter Classic 5.8

It's time to update reviews, so I'll start off by saying that version 5.8 (universal code) should have been designated GC v. 6.0 rather than continuing the "impression" that it's still pre-MacIntel code inside. Mr. Lemke's only fault as far as I can see - this version designation is a little confusing.

That "used for less than a month" is misleading in my info bar - I've been a GC user since version 3.83. It's this new unicode version to which I refer now.

Still a 5-star app. Whenever Thorsten Lemke "messes up" - it's brief and temporary because he promptly issues new versions with bugs fixed.
I don't see how he can keep up with user requests for new features - but he does, and that sometimes results in a glitch or two.

5.8 works like all preceding versions - very well. And there's some nice touches arising from user requests. Like "shadowed text" in the browser and slideshow - makes file paths much easer to read against light backgrounds and eliminates the need for adding colored borders (to make text visible).

Another feature I hadn't tried before (there're so many) - converting slideshow (folders containing images) to QuickTime movies. This feature works flawlessly, including the ability to set frame rates and display sizes. The resultng movies can be imported into iMovie for addition of sound tracks, effects and titles. I've had a ball this past week, making my own animated movies with GC, some PhotoShop, and iMovie (with iDraw a recent addition to my animation project software.)

To think - I paid $30 some years ago and have gotten about 20 upgrades free. How many 3rd party apps give that much value?

I can't get over how much I actually use this shareware product. It's stable, opens virtually anything, and is inexpensive. I second that, that it is one of the best pieces of shareware for the Mac ever written. Excellent!

"Extremely good work"

If Microsoft would take half as much care and support for their software as Thorsten Lemke does, I would say: "I love Microsoft". However, this remains a conjunctive. As for now, there are few developers who take so much care to deliver just good work at a very reasonable price. Extremely good work!

"Lemke's GraphicConverter is"

probably one of the best, reliable, and supported programs ever developed. Yes, it should be the model on which ALL programs are compared. Lemke should be very proud of this ongoing work. As a long time user, I know I am. I'm very thankful for this program. The price is unbelievably well priced. It has many functions that rival $500-$1000 programs in what it can do. Support and fixes are very timely and appreciated. I've seen shareware programs come and go since I started using a Mac in 1984. GC is one of the top 10 SW programs ever developed, and at the top of that list... It is the holy grail of graphic programs. GC is a 5+ star program, and I give 5 stars out like a banker gives out money. BTW order the printed manual too if you want to use GC to the max. Thanks Lemke!

I have been using Lemke's GREAT software since 1998 and once again he has produced a fantastic piece of software by which all other shareware products should be judged!

Solid, stable, feature laden, helpful documentation and great value for money! What more could one ask for?

"What? Only a 4.9 rating?"

GC deserves 5.0+. It's versatile, sturdy, comes with great documentation, is updated frequently and meaningfully, and can do anything to a graphic except make it dance. No, it probably can do that, too.
