-- GraphicConverter 9 is now available in the Mac App Store --

This version (GraphicConverter 8) is still available for customers with 10.6.8. Because GraphicConverter 9 does require 10.7 or later.

GraphicConverter 8 is the universal tool for browsing, enhancing and converting images and for creating catalogs for the Web or for printing. Simply drag a folder onto GraphicConverter to view your pictures.

The slide show for viewing and sorting images is a big hit among users. Use standard tools to edit images or click the oval button on an image window to display the most important controls in the window.

Professional users love GraphicConverter because of its wide range of functions for handling meta data like EXIF, IPTC, XMP and GPS. Want to copy the filename into the IPTC description? GraphicConverter will take care of this for you.

You can open over 200 graphic file types and save images in over 80 formats. A simple multiple conversion mode takes care of batch runs. Want to use a batch function to alter the image size or change the color mode to CMYK? Dozens of batch functions are available.

GraphicConverter has everything you would expect from a versatile image processing application for your Mac. Simple usage and far-reaching options await you along with stability and reliability.

In the press, GraphicConverter has been described as a “Swiss Army knife” and as an “all-round wizard for image editing on Macs”.

Insanely Great Graphics App! - I have been using versions of GraphicConverter since the last millenium and consider it indespensible for creating website graphics, making animated GIFs, converting PDFs to graphics, and manipulating folders of graphics in batch mode. This refresh of Mr. Lemke's amazing "swiss army knife" tool is brilliant. He and his collaborators have outdone themselves in modernizing the interface to take advantage of the latest user interface features of modern Mac OS!

Note this version does not auto upgrade - You have to pay extra for upgrades through their Kagi store. There are no automatic upgrades through the App Store.

Great tool - I use Pixelmator for small jobs and Photoshop for the big jobs. For everything in between, I use GraphicConverter. It is the Swiss Army Knife for image processing.

Version 8.8.2
Review by MikeBeato

Mature and valuable graphic image app - My Mac is full of Photoshop files, thousands of digital photography JPEGs, Illustrator docs, PDFs, etc, etc. I’ve been searching for years to find a Mac app that could manage this huge collection of images. I’ve kept trying — with great frustration — to use Adobe Bridge CC. Bridge is slow, unresponsive and constantly giving me “cache” related warning messages. I tried GraphicConverter and was won over instantly. It’s chock full of features. And it’s fast. It runs rings around Adobe Bridge. The developer has been super responsive. There was a resizing batch feature that I didn’t quite understand. I sent a message through their website and received a quick reply not only answering my question, but also including a link to a 50 second screencast showing exactly how to do it. That’s service! One other thing. I mistakenly purchased GraphicConverter version 8 without realizing version 9 was also available. I once again emailed Thorsten Lemke, the developer. He immediately sent me a reply showing how I could correct my purchase mistake and obtain the latest version of GraphicConverter. Top notch software. Top notch service. 5-stars all around!

Graphic Converter is a great program - I have been using Graphic Converter for many years. For general purpose image editing it’s great, I prefer it for general editing over Photoshop and have it set to be the default program for opening essentially all image files on my computer.

Review by ButterBeanBiker

What about PICT - As long as you use their specific formats, everything is fine. I bought this to convert old PICT files and it won’t do it, with the message, “the file is broken”. I think this application is a lot of hype when I can open it in Preview and then export it as PDF. BLAH

Review by Bruce Johns

Great Support - I was not able to use the .svg export format due to restrictions by the App Store version of the software (something to do with sandboxing). I e-mailed customer service and within 2 minutes had a response and a solution. Fantastic support and really friendly. This app looks extremely powerful and packed with tremendous capability. Looks like there will not be much sleep tonight.
