Contenta ARW Converter
Contenta ARW Converter is a program developed to help users convert image files (ARW, JPG, JPEG, TIF, TIFF) to other formats, namely JPEG, JPEG 2000, PNG, TIFF, BMP, PPM, or PDF. It is backed by a set of handy features that should please all types of users, regardless of their previous experience with such tools.
The installation procedure is quick and does not require special attention. The interface is somewhat intuitive, based on several steps.
Image files can be added to the list using the file browser, folder view (with or without subfolders) or drag-and-drop method. Shown information includes the full path, type and size for each item.
It is possible to preview photos, initial and output size, point out the output directory and target format, change the width and height manually or choose a profile, adjust the JPEG quality, enter the resolution in DPI, as well as set the app to extract the preview and preserve EXIF, IPTC and XMP metadata.
The app implements options for sharing photos on the developer's servers (free), renaming files using patterns, creating subfolders with rules, as well as for generating a photo album with customizable settings (page orientation and size, resolution, number of images per page, gap).
Furthermore, RAW processing options let you change the brightness levels, boost sharpness and others, while special effects can be applied to pictures. They can be further enhanced with text or image watermarks, and their metadata is prone to editing.
