Software to transcode images into many different file types
Beta 8 5.0
Windows 8 / Windows 7 / Windows Vista / Windows XP
Picture Converter by developer Matthias Hielscher is a small and convenient image file format conversion tool. Compatible with all versions of Windows, Picture Converter also supports conversion to and from several popular (and legacy) image file formats.
Even for Windows novices, Picture Converter is incredibly straightforward to use: simply load the files needing conversion, choose the desired output options, and click 'Start.' Helpfully, Picture Converter only needs to be pointed to the directory where the images are stored. From there, all compatible images will be loaded. Individual unwanted images can be unchecked afterward, which preserves the bulk conversion feature offered. There is even a built-in image preview pane for quick discernment between loaded images.
Image output options within Picture Converter include the above mentioned supported file formats, plus a .JPG quality slider; image resizing preferences, and save location preferences. Picture Converter gives users the ability to preset custom image resolutions, keep original image proportions, and overwrite (rather than copy) selected images.
Additionally, Picture Converter offers support for both German and English language users. The language option for the user interface can be toggled by clicking either the small German or American flag icons in the upper right-hand corner.
Image conversion using Picture Converter is exceptionally fast; during testing the software successfully converted 80 images, of varying sizes and formats, into a single format in under a minute. Considering that the entire program is under a single megabyte in size, Picture Converter is a tiny package with a lot of power behind it.
Overall, Picture Converter is a handy application that is definitely worth downloading.
