GraphicConverter 8.0

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Lemkesoft has released GraphicConverter 8.0 [1], a major new release for the well-regarded graphic conversion and editing utility that now supports the latest 64-bit Intel-based Macs, as well as file sizes larger than 16 megapixels. GraphicConverter 8.0 brings several new batch processing capabilities, including highlight and shadow, histogram equalization, and scale to size with crop. It also adds EMF and EMZ import capabilities, an option to show elapsed time in a slideshow, and an option to replace an underscore character with a space when creating an HTML catalog. GraphicConverter 8.0 is a free update for owners of GraphicConverter 7, but it requires a paid upgrade of $29.95 for users with versions 1 through 6. Lemkesoft also notes that users who purchased GraphicConverter 7 from the Mac App Store may have to wait between 2 to 3 weeks to receive the update to version 8.0 due to Appleā€™s review process. ($39.95 new from Lemkesoft or from the Mac App Store [2], free update from version 7.x, $29.95 upgrade from versions 1 through 6, 136 MB, release notes [3])
