Lemkesoft has released GraphicConverter 8.3.1, with a number of changes to the highly regarded graphic conversion and editing utility, including a few interface tweaks like an action menu on the menu bar, confirmation of file deletions from the browser, and an optional IPTC indicator in the browser. Support for PCD and PICT export from the 64-bit version has been added, along with the capability to import ECW files, though this latter feature is lacking in the Mac App Store version due to Apple’s restrictions. PDFs can now be protected on save, text can be rotated, movies can be converted to animations, and there’s now an option to ignore lab profiles embedded in TIFF files. A number of bugs have also been fixed. ($39.95 new, free update from version 7.x, $29.95 upgrade from versions 1 through 6, 150 MB, release notes).

for their generous support!
Anyway - GraphicConverter remains the second best shareware purchase I've ever made (right after MacSOUP).
