Image Converter Overview
Image Converter is a utility to convert from one image format to another, even in batches. Images you add to the app are part of a queue. Once you click Convert they will all be converted to the image format you've selected with the settings you've selected.
Image Converter is a FREE utility for Windows and Linux (macOS to be supported in the future). See Image Converter Downloads for the latest releases.
Important: Image Converter doesn't remove your original files unless you specify to overwrite existing files and the source and destination have the same filename.
The User Interface
Image Converter consists of two main sections. The left column contains your controls for converting the images and the grid is your queue of images to be converted.
Image Converter Controls
These are the settings on the left column of the application. These control which image format the images should be converted into and where they'll be written to on your hard drive.
This is the image file type the images are to be converted to. There are quite a few image types to choose from, including WebP and PSD (Photoshop). Also in this list is PDF. The PDF option turns each image into its own PDF document.
With some of the image types you have control over the image quality. Some images can be compressed to save space at the expense of image quality. These formats include: JPG, JPEG, and WebP. For other formats, the setting is simply ignored.
This setting controls where the images are written to. You can write them to the same location they came from or to a new location. When Other Folder is selected, the Other Folder option below it is then enabled. As this setting is toggled, the Destination column in the queue is updated to show you where the image will be written to.
When the option Other Folder is selected above this option you may specify a folder where the images will be written to. In order to avoid potential duplicate files (such as have a queue of images from multiple folders), this folder will create sub-folders mirroring the original image location. For example, if your original image (source image) is C:\Photos\photo.jpg and your Other Folder is C:\FinalPhotos than your new image will be found in C:\FinalPhotos\Photos\photo.webp (or whatever Format you selected).
This options controls what happens when the converted file already exists. You may skip writing the file or you may overwrite the existing one.
The image list is the list of images you wish to convert.
Images are added to this list by using the Add Images link above it.
Images can be removed from this list by right-clicking selected images and then clicking Remove. Alternatively, you may remove images by selected those you wish to remove and hit the Delete key on your keyboard.
The images grid contains a few helpful column which can be resized.
- Filename: This is the name of the source file (the image to convert from).
- Source: This is the full path and filename of the source file (the image to convert from).
- Destination: This is the full path and filename of the new file that'll be created. This updates as changes are made to the left column of the screen.
- Status: This shows the status of the conversion of the image.
The Convert button processes the images in the grid. As each image is processed the status in the grid provides feedback as to the status of the image.
