Batch Image Converter
« on: December 21, 2006, 04:37:48 AM »
I have looked for quite a while.  I have found a few but none that does everything I want. I want to convert all my .tiff and .bmp files into .png files.

1.  Will accept an entire Drive letter as well as subfolders.
2.  Option of selected which file types are to be convertered.
3.  Option of deleting original file after completing batch conversion.
4.  Files converted stay in original folder that they were converted from.
5.  Free

I look forward to your suggestions.  :)

The best one i know of (not that i know the field all that well) is ReaCoverter, but it's *not* free by any stretch of the imagination:
Rea Converter - http://www.reasoft.c...oducts/reaconverter/
Price ranges from $25 to $99 (ouch!)

I look forward to hearing about the best free one from other members..

Dont know how much effort you want to put into this, but ImageMagick (http://www.imagemagick.org) is extremely powerful... essentially it's scripting for pictures.  It does a lot more than just batch converting, but it is more customizable than some other solutions.  I have never used it, but I have looked into it from time to time to see if I had a need for it.

I've only used it for resizing pictures in batch, but BIMP lite did the trick for me:

I tried Inranview but couldn't get it to output in the same folders as input.  I then tried BIMP Lite and it wont let me selected which formats for input.  Ill try the other later.  Got a final to go write.  Ill post a follow up to the rest.  Thanks to everyone for posting though.

choosing the "Use this directory as output" option will do the trick..

I did and it will not process the subdirectories and put back in the same folder.  All the photo's ended up in the single directory and not in the subdirectory.

I just tested out BIMP it works!  I don't know what I did wrong earlier but it worked exactly as I needed.  For future reference, the key was on the input folder area, you have to right click and select Recurse Subdirectories.  I hope this helps others out.  Thanks so much for the suggestions ppl.
