Although not a full-blown image-editing suite, this application lets you convert photos in batch mode. The first section of OptimizeBatch's two-tabbed interface lets you browse your PC for pictures. However, it's not readily apparent how to actually move images to the conversion queue, so we had to consult the help files. The second tab lets you choose among a few different qualities and output formats, including GIF, JPEG, BMP, and TIFF. The program lacks advanced image-editing features, but you can make a few tweaks in bulk, including applying a grayscale effect, inverting shots, and introducing a few dither effects. This application will be most beneficial to professionals who routinely work with large amounts of images at once.
