Although Lemkesoft’s GraphicConverter X 7.3.1 received a only minor version bump, the update comes with a large number of enhancements, including new options for manipulating images and previews, improved drawing functions, and the capability to display GPS location data embedded in image files. Support for Mac OS X 10.7 Lion has also been improved with the reintroduction of support for the operating system’s full-screen mode. Several smaller bug fixes and feature tweaks round out the update. ($39.95 new from Lemkesoft or from the Mac App Store, free update, 100 MB, release notes)

Beware of this upgarde. I downloaded it, and it wigged out in every way imaginable: repeating error messages that required a force quit, crashes, and much more.
Curious, Kirk. I've worked all day with it yesterday and the day before, no such bad luck. Actually, while some versions have been a bit prone to crashing compared to others, I've always found GC to be a stable and well-behaved app (I've been using it since OS 7.5). Would you care to share with us what you were doing when this happened, or, at least write to the programmer (Thorsten Lemke): he's very responsive to his users' comments and requests for help.
