We have used GraphicConverter for 20 years. It like a universal toolbox for photo editing and image management on the Mac.

We use it for sorting thousands of images of all different formats and types. It can open and save a huge range of more...

I remember the main thing I was happy about when version 9 was first released was the faster download speed of the app and its updates. Just downloaded the latest version though and noticed we're back to the old days of this app taking half a day to download. Not a critisism of the app, just a heads up to anyone about to download/ update. If you haven't got GC and deal with image files, then get it, if nothing else for it's browsing abilities. After all these years, its still my no.1 image browser for images

I'm still using GraphicConverter X 6.5 of 2009. My reason why I never upgraded: GC never handled the color red correctly in JPG's. Even in highest quality at 100 % the color red had visible artifacts. When using Photoshop at 80 % quality there were no artifacts and the file size was massively smaller. So I'm using an older version of Photoshop and only use GC rarely. It would be interesting to know, if never version of GC still have this problem. I always liked the batch functionality of GC.

This is one of very few of my reviews. I felt, that I need to add my impression. I tried GC many times, but always backed out, and used PSE instead, for many years.
I'm trying it again, and I am so impressed.
It's superior to PSE! And to pixelmator, which is good looking, but still not in the same class as GC.
So many features to use, to play with, amazing!
I'll be purchasing it, after I get my new iMac soon.
Decision made!

Great application which has been around forever, and I do mean forever. I'm pretty sure it actually predates all of human civilization. Unlike many applications, every version to date has worked well and reliably, performing the specified tasks with few (or no) problems.

If I remember correctly, I got my first copy of Graphic Converter on a floppy disc! Back when I was using Mac OS X 7.5 on a Performa.

By the way, I finally bit the bullet and purchased an upgrade license for version 9. I recently bought a new 27" iMac and am now running OS X 10.9.4 so I thought the upgrade was finally in order.

Lots of features (not just a simple wrapper around a couple of public domain algorithms)
Very well maintained (useful and meaningful updates on a regular basis)
Reasonable honest straightforward pricing (yes, it is $40 but that is the full price unlike some freeware products (e.g., RPP) that are crippleware (aka you can only do that if you pay, and then half the time it does not work anyways)

Most important stable as rock without being a resource hog (plays well other application and does not try to hog resources to prevent other applications from running smoothly (e.g.,RPP again)).

Great app, very responsive developer. He has just released a beta which implements a suggestion I made! This app is gradually replacing most of what I used to do in Photoshop, and a bit more besides.

Batch processing capabilities are ample, and optimisation for the web is second to none,. Overall this is an app which is very stable and user-friendly, and you can tell it has been developed and refined over many years. Recommended.

This applications is amazing. I'm considering buying as it really worth the price. Moreover, its Browser can almost replace the Finder with better implemented photos zooming; I like to use it in place of the Finder.

In that regard, would it be possible to add some functions that would make it more usable as a Finder replacement, Get Info on Folders/Files and an Eject button for DVD/CD and Disk Images?

Sometimes I have to open Disk Images complete with photos, and since it's possible to move them elsewhere directly from the GraphicConverter Browser, I would also like to be able to eject the disk image from it. Thanks.
