I wrote this program while Paul and I were scanning family photos and 35mm slides. We scanned our entire family history as Bitmap files, which are huge, but we wanted to scan everything at the highest possible quality we could. After scanning and cleaning the photos, we needed something to convert those huge files to a smaller, more portable format (like jpg). But there's no way we were going to sit there and convert over 30,000 images by hand! We needed something that could handle an entire folder at a time. I couldn't find anything that was free, so I wrote Batch Image Converter. It's free, easy, and will happily convert an entire folder of images from one format to another, even if that folder has hundreds of pictures.
Tested with thousands of images and by tens of thousands of people. This is, by far, our most downloaded program.
- Easy to Use - load images by selecting a folder, or just drag and drop the pictures onto the file list
- Reads about 30 image file formats including popular ones like GIF, BMP, JPEG, PNG, RAW, and PSD
- Converts files to one of 9 formats -- BMP, JPG, PCX, PNG, PNM, RAW, SGI, TGA, TIF
- Works on Windows and Linux machines -- Actually, it should be able to run on many platforms, including Linux, Mac OSX, Sun Solaris, BSD, and Windows. If you can install Mono or Microsoft's .Net Framework, you should be able to run Batch Image Converter.
