freePhotoConverter can dramatically shrink JPEG photos or Web images filesize.

What's New

Version 3.5: Version 3.0.1 wasn't too good. Sorry... this version is identical to our $5 PhotoExpress 1.2.2. This means:- rock solid performance- even more settings- useful effects: sharpen, sepia and grayscale


Mac OS X 10.2 or later

This is what I got when I selected "download NOW"
Het Net heet voortaan KPN
Het Net heeft een nieuwe naam: KPN. Het Net is al sinds 1999 onderdeel van KPN en heet nu voortaan KPN. Met deze wijziging wil KPN iedereen betere diensten en service bieden. Om deze reden zijn persoonlijke homepages verplaatst van Het Net naar KPN.
De door jou opgevraagde homepage: http://home.hetnet.nl/~gijsraggers/freephotoconverter3.dmg is voortaan bereikbaar via de nieuwe kpn url:
Sla de nieuwe url op in je favorieten.

Clearly you cannot download now and maybe not at all unless you read German

That is a hell of a useful program! Up to now I used 2.0 but this new one is unbelievably good. It beats anything else for the job of taking a picture and having it fit for email or for my new need: JPEG to view on my TV with Digital Photo Viewer. Finally Belkin made something that works for me. I am going to send my $5 after this post. This should be commercial software. It is that good! Bravo!

Wow! I discovered this little gem when I needed to compress some images to put on eBay. Saved my bacon (didn't have to retake a bunch of photos). And it's easy to use and the compressed images are excellent! Thanks for making this available!

Wow...really amazing! Its one of the best and most handy applications I've found in a while!
Good job!

By the way the download link doesn't work but there is a way around that!
-Click "more information"
-You get an error...but...remove: freephotoconverter/
From the web-address and hit enter. Now you are in the index on the homepage and you can acces the file from there! :-)

Version 2.5 works fine at Pathos but many people report bugs we can not reproduce. If you're are a happy 2.4 user do not 'upgrade' now. We will be working on a bug free new version for everyone. Sorry for the inconvenience. This is why we don't dare to ask any money.

Greetings, Pathos.

P.S. Let me now if you want access to a 2.4 copy.

Why don't you put the 2.4 back on so people can re-download it to use until you get your bug fixed in 2.5 coz there are people already dumped the 2.4 and found your 2.5 is not working right and now they have nothing to use.

ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT piece of software. I was looking for something that would convert my photoshop files into jpegs, but that would also compress at a good rate - sounds strange, but that type of utility is VERY hard to come by.

I've tried Photoshop, but its format conversion features are TERRIBLE, even in the new version. I tried Graphic Converter, but it's compression rate isn't up to much. I've tried other smaller desktop utilities, but they couldn't read the Photoshop format.

And then I found this software, and it did it with minimum fuss, and at a compression rate I'm still finding hard to believe. Barely any quality loss and a tiny file size. Better than Photoshop, and FREE. Unbelievable. Well done Pathos. You're a credit to software coders everywhere.

For quick and easy, this is it! Drag from iphoto to this (copies not moves) compress with a click, drag onto my email--done, get on with life. The image quality is most excellent for the compression acheived. For friends and family photos that get sent, this is more than sufficient.
Yeah, with photoshop you can do better, but quick and easy it aint. In the time it takes photoshop to load, I am done and onto something else.

Worked like a charm! Reduced my photo down from 324K to 68K with no perceptable loss of quality. Get tool for those quick conversions for email attachments. Highly recommended.
