GraphicConverter 9.0.2

Send Article to a Friend

Lemkesoft released version 9.0 of the venerable GraphicConverter in late 2013 featuring full compatibility with OS X 10.9 Mavericks and several new features. With the new non-destructive Cocooner editing mode, you can modify an image while keeping the original image data unchanged, plus export the altered image to all of GraphicConverter’s supported formats. Version 9 also adds the capability to undo file and folder operations in the app’s browser. Because it now requires 10.7 Lion, GraphicConverter has split into two Mac App Store editions — the original GraphicConverter title (at version 8.8.2 and still available for users running 10.6.8 Snow Leopard) and the new GraphicConverter 9. Both are available for $39.99 each.

Ringing in 2014, version 9.0.2 of the graphic conversion and editing utility adds a number of improvements, including filtering images in Cocooner mode by rating and label, importing .snagproj files, browsing SkyDrive and Cloud Drive, and merging or copying images into a PDF from Convert & Modify. The update also now sorts files in the browser by order of EXIF, IPTC, and file date, and adds separate Back and Forward menu commands in the browser. ($39.95 new from the Lemkesoft Web site or from the Mac App Store, 202 MB, release notes).

Yes, you're correct about the 8.8.3 version now being available from Lemke Software. However, on the Mac App Store, the older GraphicConverter is still at 8.8.2; this is a common problem with the Mac App Store, given Apple's need to approve every update.
