Lemkesoft has released GraphicConverter 9.6 with a variety of new features and improvements for the venerable graphic conversion and editing utility. The update adds support for Photoshop Pattern file import, a batch SVG-to-PDF (vector) conversion, support for pressure-sensitive pens by the Brush tool, an automatic Red Eye feature, the capability to shift channels left and right, and support for importing and exporting BPG (Better Portable Graphics) image files. It also improves MIME decoding, shows a marker in the Open Street Map display, ensures that corrupt GPS data will no longer report that a file has any GPS data, and updates the Norwegian localization. ($39.95 new from Lemkesoft or the Mac App Store, free update, 234 MB, release notes, 10.7+)
Thoughtful, detailed coverage of the Mac, iPhone, and iPad, plus the TidBITS Content Network for Apple consultants.
