We often need to use some images with a certain program that
does not recognize the file format employed or need to upload
some pictures to our website and use the optimal image format
(JPEG, GIF or PNG) or simply need to compress our digital photos
to share them with friends. In all those cases we will need to
convert the image file format.
We can convert our images one by one with our favorite
graphic editor if it supports the desired image format, but it
will take a lot of time to transform dozens of images by hand.
Instead we could use a purposely built image converter software
and let it handle all pics automatically, in just one session!
BatchPhoto is such a tool, capable of changing the image file
format, compressing and even renaming, resizing and watermarking
hundreds of pictures in one go. BatchPhoto knows more than 170
image formats, including RAW formats, and has 49 graphical filters
you can apply to your shots in one operation. It works on both
Windows® and Mac® OS X.
The program is designed to make your job easier by processing
hundreds of images in one session, by saving settings for later use, and
even by working directly from Windows® Explorer's
right-mouse-click menu, without starting the application.

RAW Image Formats
The RAW formats are the new negatives, known as digital negatives, of DSLR
digital cameras. As with the film negatives, professional photographers can
post process to perfection the images shot in RAW. BatchPhoto can convert
RAW images from almost all DSLR digital cameras (including: Canon, Sony,
Nikon, Olympus, Fuji, Kodak, Pentax) to almost any image format.

The most used file format for storing digital photos or images on the
Internet is JPEG, also known as JPG. JPEG stands for Joint Photographic
Experts Group JFIF image format and it uses a lossy image
compression algorithm. As the name implies, a lossy compression
algorithm is an algorithm that sacrifices image data for a
smaller file size. However the resulting picture will often be
undistinguishable from the original one by the human eye.

TIFF is the acronym for Tagged Image File Format and is a
lossless file format, unlike JPEG. Being a lossless format which
means all image data is kept no matter how many times the
picture is saved, makes it useful for archiving images and is
often used by image professionals. TIFF also supports multiple
pages which means multi-page documents can be saved to a single

PNG is the short-hand for Portable Network Graphics and
unlike JPEG is a lossless file format. PNG is a well known
Internet file format for storing unaltered and high-quality

Using the program was easy and quick, I really liked the filters
it offered me as well as the filename modification. I was also
amazed at how many different output types were available. The
previews were also found to be excellent.
