Better JPEG Editor is a program which allows you to easily process image files with the JPG and JPEG extension.
The interface of the application is clean and intuitive. Thanks to the Explorer-based layout, you can easily locate and select images. But you can also use the treeview or "drag and drop" method. Batch processing is supported.
So, you can flip, rotate and crop pictures, as well as change their size and make image adjustments regarding brightness and color.
Furthermore, you can convert images to grayscale, remove the red eye effect and add text, as well as reconstruct photographs by inserting the preferred number of passes.
On top of that, you can zoom in and out, disable the toolbar and status bar, use the undo and redo functions, change the background color, change the thumbnail style (border, drop shadow), attach images to emails, set default actions (e.g. rotate, flip, crop, text, red eye), and more.
The straightforward application uses a low-to-moderate amount of system resources, includes a well-written help file for beginners (too bad it doesn't have snapshots), has a good response time and didn't freeze, crash or display errors during our tests.
On the other hand, we had expected to find more features available (e.g. apply filters like sepia, art, distort, blur, solarize, posterize). Other than that, we strongly recommend Better JPEG Editor to all users.
