BatchPhoto supports more than 170 image formats, and can automatically convert from one format to another. It even handles the RAW format used by many digital single-lens reflex (DSLR) cameras.
It’s easy to create profiles that define which transformations to apply to each image in a batch. Alternatively, users can enhance a single image by simply right-clicking the image, and selecting a profile. The software performs a series of operations on the image. It’s possible to change the number of dots per inch (DPI), auto-rotate images from portrait to landscape, or rotate them a specified number of degrees. Users can also crop photos by cutting a rectangular section out of each image.
BatchPhoto enhances images, one at a time or in batches. The software can automatically detect and fix problems with contrast, brightness, gamma settings, and sharpness, transform color images into black and white pictures, charcoal images, or sepia-tone photos, apply solarization and embossing effects to images.
BatchPhoto 4.2 begins at $29.95 USD (or an equivalent amount in other currencies), and is available for download through the BatchPhoto website.
