What’s the hidden trend among Mac apps? Lower prices. More features. Seriously. Since the iPhone App Store hit the market a few years ago, we’ve seen attractive mobile apps for pennies on the dollar when compared to Mac apps.
That changed with the launch of the Mac App Store last year. Now Mac users have access to great new apps that cost 1/10th or less what similar apps cost just a few years ago.
Here’s an example, but it’s merely one of many. Image Bucket is a Mac photo (or image) conversion app. It’s loaded with features any wannabe photographer can use, and it’s remarkably easy to convert photos, add watermarks, flip, rename. $3.99.
Take a look at the basics (all Mac-like):
Photo conversion apps are not a dime a dozen. If you’re serious about your photos, then you want to drop in watermarks, or resize images in batches. That’s Image Bucket.
Image Bucket easily converts photos back and forth between eight file formats (JPEG, TIFF, PNG, GIF, BMP, PSD, TGA, JP2).
It even resizes using your specifications. Width times height. Width (proportional). Height (proportional). Longest side, and maximum height or width.
If you understand the benefits of batch processing, you’ll like the built-in tools to rename and relocate photos; from one folder to another.
There’s a Pro version of Image Bucket that adds a few more features but it’s a mere $1 more.
Low priced, one-trick-pony apps are all the rage for Mac users these days. It’s great to find a useful app that’s loaded up with features but still has a reasonable price tag.
