GraphicConverter 8.6

Send Article to a Friend

Lemkesoft has released GraphicConverter 8.6 with a number of new features, including the addition of layers, a brightness with curve function, and support for the DPHOTO online sharing and backup service. Other additions include a filmstrip option for displaying movies, shortcuts for both lossless and virtual rotation and mirroring, an option to save RGBA files as TIFFs with or without a premultiplied alpha channel, and a last-used zoom option. The graphic conversion and editing utility also receives a few updates, including improved WPG and WPG2 import, an updated ExifTool, extended keyboard control in the browser, and improved sharpen range. The update also fixes bugs that affected importing of CMYK TIFF files with JPEG compression, 32-bit grayscale TIFFs, and GIF animations in certain situations. As of this writing, GraphicConverter is still stuck at version 8.5.3 in the Mac App Store. ($39.95 new from the Lemkesoft Web site or $38.99 from the Mac App Store, 155 MB, release notes).
