Lemke Software has released GraphicConverter 7.0, a substantial upgrade to the popular image conversion and editing powerhouse. The new version sports GraphicConverter's first major new coat of paint in years; it has finally shed the Classic look in favor of a modern, Cocoa-based interface. Beyond the major makeover, GraphicConverter 7.0 introduces a few new features. It now shows images' embedded geodata on a map, offers a new window for converting multiple files at once, provides stepless zooming of preview images, better organizes the preferences screen, and offers improved support for computers with multiple processors. GraphicConverter 7.0 requires Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard or higher. ($34.95 new, $29.95 upgrade, 100.0 MB)

It's well worth the money, and the upgrade is fantastic. The interface is better, and a number of annoyances have disappeared.
If it is simply the absence of all the language supports in the upgrade, I will gladly save the money.
I am neither Luddite nor an isolationist, but I do not have non-English language needs in the realm of image manipulation.
My fault is that I read advertising promos carefully,in order to identify what is not said. And so I wait a while to await details of the UNFULL upgrade.
I use GC 6 alot (though not all capabilities) and v7 seems to me to be mostly a decorative and 40% bigger update.
