GraphicConverter 11’s Record Macros function allows users to record functions they use repeatedly in the same order to apply to other files. The new function saves time, making it easier to apply functions to multiple images.
The new RAW Developer feature makes it easier to edit RAW images, thanks to its full-screen dialog when opening RAW files, which offers controls for Exposure, Contrast, and Color Corrections. Picture noise can be reduced, even with 6 controllers.
GraphicConverter’s Unpack Archives feature allows users to view the pictures and documents inside an archive file and unpack them if so desired. The function works with ZIP, TAR, TGZ, and more formats, 13 in all. Plus, editors that organize their work using Apple’s Finder Tags will appreciate the browser context menu’s ability to directly display and change these tags.
Wide-angle photography always has a tendency to distort faces and objects on each end of an image. GraphicConverter 11’s new Wide Equalization feature reduces the distortion, making the shots look more natural.
New functionality in the app now means creating a gradient as a background for a collage or other use is as simple as a few clicks of the mouse. Easily create color gradients with up to 10 colors. The new Duo-Tone feature allows photographers to color their shots with two colors. The darker shades use color 1, while the lighter tones use color two.
“GraphicConverter 11 is a better value than ever, thanks to the new tools we’ve added to the utility,” continues Thorsten. “If you’d like to try GraphicConverter to make sure it fits your needs, you can download the trial version and give it a try.”
