GraphicConverter 8.2

Send Article to a Friend

Lemkesoft has released GraphicConverter 8.2 with quite the laundry list of new features. The well-regarded graphic conversion and editing utility adds support for both Flickr and Google+, a local database for thumbnail storage, an option to enable/disable display of current location in the map (as well as disable usage of Google Maps), an option to paste as text, and support for Photoshop-compatible plug-ins. The new version also updates image capture calls for improved downloading from digital cameras and optimizes file access in the browser for faster display. For a complete rundown of the many new features and bug fixes, be sure to peruse the release notes. Note that while GraphicConverter is available in the Mac App Store, that edition hasn’t yet been updated to version 8.2 as of this writing. ($39.95 new, free update from version 7.x, $29.95 upgrade from versions 1 through 6, 125 MB).
