Bulk Image Converter
Bulk Image Converter is an application with a name that pretty much sums up its functionality - it allows you to convert image files from and to BMP, EMF, EXIF, GIF, JPEG, PNG, TIFF and WMF.
This is a portable software, so it is not necessary to install Bulk Image Converter. In other words, you can place the app on a removable device (like a USB flash drive) and simply run its executable file on any computer. The most important aspect is that the Windows registry keys are not altered.
The interface of the program is based on a standard window where you can use the folder view to import pictures for processing. Plus, you can include subdirectories.
So, all you have to do is establish the input and output format, along with target folder, in order to proceed with the task. Furthermore, you can set Bulk Image Converter delete original files after conversion.
The program requires a low amount of system CPU and memory, in order to finish a task briefly. It has a good response time and delivers a good image quality after conversion. We have not come across any issues throughout our testing. Bulk Image Converter did not freeze, crash or display error dialogs.
On the other hand, there is no help file available and you cannot preview pictures or use the file browser to individually import items for processing. Plus, you cannot set Bulk Image Converter to open the output directory after conversion or to minimize to the system tray. The interface needs some improvements as well but we must remember that Bulk Image Converter has not been updated for a long while.
