Ratings and Reviews
Superb graphic application which does as much if not more than Photoshop
I have been using GraphicConverter since it was a simple program designed to change graphic file formats from one to another (hense the name). That was way over a decade ago at least. Thorsten Lemke hasn’t been passive and has added hundreds if not thousands of features to the point that it can do anything Photoshop can do and probably more. One of the best features is the author, Thorsten Lemke. If you post a problem/question on his forum, he usually replies personally in less than a day. He replies, not someone hired to answer questions using canned responses. He also is open to adding features that users ask for. Once I asked if GraphicConverter could do file name manipulation like other Apple apps. You know, click on the file name on the Toolbar and change the file name and/or location the file is stored. Whithin hours I received an email with a link to a new beta that included those features. Having personal contact with the author of a program is invaluable.
What can I say? GraphicConverter is a great program. Buy it now. Oh, and buy it from the Lemke website so you can avoid many stupid Apple restrictions.
Excellent product, even better supprt
I have been a user of Graphic Converter for many years. It is my go-to application for all graphics operations. I had the Apple Store version installed on my laptop and ran into the inexplicable restrictions Apple imposes on the App store version. The copy I have on my Mac Mini was downloaded directly from Lemke Software and has no such restrictions.
For example, I received a JPEG from my wife who asked me to remove the background. I quickly did this and saved the file. Since JPEG doesn’t support transparency, I was prompted to save as PNG. No matter where I tried to save the file (even the recommended Pictures folder), I was prevented from doing so due to the Apple Sandboxing “feature”. I am an administrator on my own laptop so permissions are not an issue. I ended up copying the content to the clipboard and using Preview to the save the file. The non-App store version has no such restriction. I don’t see any rhyme or reason for this sort of format-specific restriction.
I highly recommend the application, but do not recommend downloading it from the App store. Get it directly from Lemke Software to avoid these frustrating limitations imposed by Apple.
Best graphics app for Mac, and Best Product support
I purchased my first version of GraphicConverter in 2002, and have been using it ever since. It started out as a very simple to use program, and over the years more and more capabilities have been added that keep it up-to-date with the most recent formats and operations, while keeping the interface both elegant and simple. Best of all, over the years I have had questions on how to use it or how to get it to work on my mac updates, and the author, Thorsten Lemke, always responds personally and quickly. I cannot recommend this program, and this developer, enough. And as far as value is concerned, this does what all the bigger programs can do, but for a small fraction of the price. Capability intuitive interface value regular updates excellent product support = winner!
