GraphicConverter 4.8 Available

Send Article to a Friend

GraphicConverter 4.8 Available -- In a product release we missed a couple of weeks ago, Lemke Software has updated its venerable image editing application GraphicConverter to version 4.8. As with previous updates, it's a wonder that anyone at Lemke gets any sleep: GraphicConverter 4.8 rolls together numerous improvements and fixes. For example, a new unskew effect has been added, as has the capability to swap color channels. Palm support has been improved with the addition of importing support for Foto PDB files and Palm image streams. Also, support for reading images directly from digital cameras and detecting images generated from Canon and Kodak cameras has been improved. GraphicConverter 4.8 runs under Mac OS 8.6 or later, including Mac OS X, costs $35 shareware, and is a 4.3 MB download. [JLC]
