GraphicConverter Turns 3.0

Send Article to a Friend

GraphicConverter Turns 3.0 -- Lemke Software has released GraphicConverter 3.0. GraphicConverter has long been a shareware favorite for manipulating graphics, thanks to its extensive feature set and affordable price (U.S. $35 or $30 depending on where you live; pricing also available in German marks). GraphicConverter 3.0 offers numerous new conversion options (for a total of 98 file types that can be imported and 38 that can be exported), squashes many bugs, and adds a browser that both displays thumbnails of images stored in a particular folder and streamlines working with those images. The new version is available as a 1.6 MB download from the Lemke Software Web site; here in Seattle, today, we had a faster download time and found links to a 3.0.1 update using one of the GraphicConverter mirrors.
