I wish this site kept an archive of earlier versions of 10.x, before they stripped out features like basic pasting in of an object and being able to drag it around. I actually had to fire up a VM, and use MS paint to do a simple edit on a photo because somewhere along the line graphic converter 10 removed the most basic feature of them all, being able to position an object you inserted into an image. Now, when I paste in an object it's pasted in a spot and IMMEDIATELY integrated into photo, no longer able to drag it to position first. The fact that I have to open a program from 1990s to do this very basic of features is hugely disappointing. I don't know what they were thinking when they made this change. I've used this program for over a decade, and now it's useless. from 5 stars to a half star.

This is one of the most underrated macOS applications of all times. It does everything - or at least almost everything - that hobby and (semi) professional users need from a picture editing application, and that for a very low price. It is sad that GraphicConverter does not get regularly reviews from Mac-related technical websites and magazines.

GraphicConverter has been a lifesaver, opening hundreds of antique PICT files that I thought inaccessible. That said, what's been most impressive is the support provided to this novice user to get me started. My questions regarding the initial lack of success I encountered were promptly and courteously answered. I can't speak highly enough about the program and my experience with the support team.

I am a bit confused about your report. You can paste an image from the clipboard and move it. It is embedded into the destination image after clicking outside the pasted graphics or pressing the escape key. It works this way since version1.

@Mysticalos - I've been using GC since Macs were using 68000 chips and System 'whatever number', through macOS Mojave and GC version 11. I've used it on hundreds of Macs over the years (work, personal, friends, family), I use the app DAILY; the cut paste has not changed.

You say you've been using the app for over a decade. When you first experienced the behavior, WHY would you jump to the conclusion that it had to be an intentional change? If the developer had actually changed something so basic, you would not be the only one to notice, right? And this forum would be full of comments. A quick scan of this MacUpdate page or the dev's forum (https://www.lemkesoft.info/forum/) , finding no other complaints about this, then common sense would lead to the realization that it was unlikely the program had changed, but more likely something about your setup that was the cause.

The developer has always provided links to download older versions of GC on his site. Versions 5 through 11 are available; it took me less than 30 seconds and a few clicks to find it. On the possibility you have a corrupted copy of GC or a modified copy from another source, have you tried downloading fresh/clean copy of GC 11 direct from the dev's site? May be worth a try if you haven't. Try someone else's Mac, or macOS in a VM, presume GC works correctly. . Possible addons on your system that effect mouse/KB clicks and strokes; reassigned keys? Try different mouse/KB, change batteries. If using 2.4GHz wireless KB or mouse, make sure it isn't interference from USB 3 ports, try a Bluetooth or wired mouse/KB to verify. Just some thoughts.

Peace, good luck. Please consider changing your rating.

What a great application, wonderful developer and all at a bargain price. I have used GC for about 12 years but only in the past 4 become dependent on it. I simply refuse to go to a subscription based Photoshop when GC can do it all. I've reported a few minor issues in the past and the developer is alway there to quickly communicate with me. This is the best.

The following is not clear on Lemkesoft.info: Upgrade for licensed users to GraphicConverter 11 on Lemkesoft.info - $25.95. Does it have time limit, like in App Store ? Upgrade in Mac App Store $25.95 till June 30. After that it's full price.

There are also some differences in feature parity between the Mac App Store version and the version direct from Lemkesoft:

What a difference in two following comments. »Sharon Kidwell« full of praise and »peterbreis« doesnt like it all.
Okay, if you dont like the GUI then move on and look for something else. But to wine there have been users who have asked for a fix for decades, and no one had respondend, Peter thats a damn lie. I am using this app since system 8 and yes there have been bugs, but the real Mr. Thorsten Lemke is mostly quick with an answer and more than responsive, sometimes within minutes, a miracle. And if we speak about suspicion, I doubt there is a real »peterbreis« and if, he just wants to discredit.
But this should be a review, there are tons of possibilities to convert or manipulate a graphic file - this tool is every penny worth.
