Lemkesoft is giving image conversion fans one more reason to be thankful this time of year with the release of GraphicConverter 7.0.2. The update includes a big list of fixes and improvements; among the new features are support for importing Office Document Imaging greyscale TIFFs, PDF import with alpha channel, and more IPTC options. Updated features include more settings for slideshows, support for float TIFFs with alpha channels, Unicode support, and support for WMFs with transparent backgrounds. Zooming with a trackpad is now much improved, and you can now use the Delete key to remove selections. ($39.95 new, free update, 100 MB)

- From there, copy the track code URL and send it to the friends you want to join the race.

Combined with iPhoto 9's overall slowness, it's beginning to feel like the early 90s again when Apple switched to PowerPC processors.
I still use GC 6 because the browser adds images processed and saved with another name back into the browser. This makes knowing what images I have already processed and how many more I have to do difficult.
This is the main reason I use the GC browser instead of Adobe's CS5 Bridge browser. I will stick with GC 6 for now.
