I've used this software for years and it just keeps getting better. Downloaded the latest version (3.3) today, then converted 100 high res photos to 8x10in just under 3 minutes. It also added my watermark, created a border, rotated, converted to jpg for web posting. Yesterday it took me all afternoon to do this one by one to various sizes of other photos, but when it came to making a batch of 16x20s into 8x10, this is the best program out there. Faster than writing a batch process because it does so many other things at one time. It's also free for non commercial use, so that's a great bonus.
Every photographer needs this. I have been using The GIMP to manipulate images by hand, but I wanted an all-in-one package to not only resize and watermark, but even more important, increase the contrast and adjust the colors. The images from my camera always need the same adjustments: increase contrastbrightness, slightly increase saturation if desired, and increase red, decrease green and blue. This program can adjust all of that, and save the settings to quickly reload. It didn't have AS many options for applying these type of effects as another few programs I tried, but the resulting picture looked better and it seemed somewhat faster to do the processing.
They really packed in everything, watermarking, resizing, renaming, add Text, Image, and under each setting (Advanced Settings) there are more options per option. The batch renaming worked flawlessly.
I've run into many converters, resizers, watermark types, and here they were, all in one application this whole time and work better and have more options than others!
Shame on me for never trying this, I used to use the image viewer all the time. (Will have to check on that again as well)
