Batch process your photos with ImgTransformer [Windows]

There are dozens of image manipulation programs out there, and many of them seem designed to complicate things as much as possible. Not so with ImgTransformer: this app is quite simple. You select your photos, select your transformations, and are done.

The image selector is quite easy to use. Using the custom-designed file browser, you can add and remove photos from your image processing list. They don’t even need to all be from the same folder! You can view the file browser in list view or thumbnail view, allowing you to find your selected photos as fast as possible.

ImgTransformer, true enough to its name, offers lots of transformation options. You can resize the photos to a certain pixel count, change the file formats, change the number of colors, change brightness/contrast/gamma, set the DPI, add a (somewhat tacky) frame, add an image watermark, add text, rotate images, crop images, and change the background color (transparent images only). From that list, adding watermarks and changing brightness/contrast/gamma are probably the most useful for the most people.

When installing ImgTransformer, be sure to set it up as a Custom installation. That way, you can opt out of the totally awesome included default search setting. You’ll also want to decline the two free bundled programs that are included free of charge for your convenience. Afterwards, you may actually be able to continue with the installation un-impeded.

ImgTransformer is quite a nice image transforming program. It’d be much nicer if it didn’t come bundled with a thousand pieces of crapware, but you can’t have everything in life. It has a nice feature set, an easy enough interface, and lots of settings.

    @Ashraf
    Thank you for your valuable website, I’m learning a lot from here and it helps me out big this time
    @Eric
    You said it all, don’t know why I didn’t see the solution earlier!, this simple and easy to use app
    fits right in (I tried LupasRename, could be good but discarded it because too complicated, XnView is good but not for this and lastly Locutus scares me with the warning of bundled crapwares from ImgTransformer) Thanks again.

    @Tony:
    You are welcome! I never understood the purpose of a file renamer for the longest time. I was like ,uh, I use the F2 key for that. Curiosity got the better of me one day and I downloaded Ant renamer and found it to be quite useful in certain situations, especially when dealing with multiple files.

    @Ashraf, just to be clear I was talking about the elimination of Windows Software of the Day and it being replaced by several individual articles. I was not talking about the new website design. You could have taken it either way.

    Hi Eric & Ashraf,
    I don’t think there is any problem with my computer regarding saving Image files (Most of the time, Images are saved auto as Jpg, except that website, I guess they want people to view only?)
    @Eric, you are a life saver, can’t believe this simple app is this GOOD and it’s also portable!( I guess since I hide the file extension so I did not really see what was going on before) …haven’t tried other function, just the batch convert the extension…it’s just marvelous.
    Thank you Eric

    @Tony:
    Sorry for the late reply but I have not been keeping up with Windows software of the day since the change to the new format. I am stuck on slow dialup and one long page loads about 10 times faster than 3 short pages. Please Mr. Boss change back to the old format or do both.

    As for your question, it sounds like you have something wrong with your computer but if the only problem is a wrong file extension, you can easily use a file renamer. I use ANT renamer portable. Just drag the files into the program, click action, then change extension, change the extension to jpg and click go. I hope this helps.

    Hi,
    I downloaded quite a few pictures from web browser and can only be saved under TEXT format (open them only see weird characters….the only way I know is to open/view them under Windows Pic & Fax Viewer then save as jpg , but only one picture at a time) Is there a free program to batch convert these pictures ?
    Thanks
