I have looked far and wide to find a software that will convert my 1200 images to jpeg in a batch process. It took me many months of looking for, but your software really does make the image conversion easy. -- Tom Stark
If what you want is the capability to quickly reduce the size of photos, this is the product for you. Works quickly and minimum of learning required. I can now 'shrink' down image sizes and email them or post them online much more easily. Great product.
The program is outstanding and I like using it because it allows me to convert TIFF and other formats into formats supported by the Motorola RAZR v3. I enjoy using the program because it is easy to use.
