If there’s anything to be said about the new Mac app Convert Images to Whatever it’s that the name is honest, simple, straightforward, and descriptive. There are times when all you need to do is convert an image from one file format to another and having an inexpensive app that does the deed fast is worth a few bucks.
Convert Images to Whatever is completely devoid of bells and whistles and priced accordingly. The same developer has other conversion apps including a compression app, resize photos app, and separate apps to convert images to .JPG or .PNG. Convert Images To Whatever seems to bring all the basics into a single app.
It all starts with a simple drag and drop.
Select the images you want to convert from the Finder. Drag and drop them onto Convert Images To Whatever. Then, select the type of image you want to convert the original to from the pull down menu.
The choices are basic but probably cover 99-percent of every Mac user’s needs; .PNG, .JPG, JPEG2000 (who uses this?), .TIFF, .GIF, and .BMP. Click the Convert button and you’re done.
What type of files can be converted to whatever?
Convert Images To Whatever handles .PNG, .JPG, .JPEG2000, .TIFF, .GIF, .BMP, and even Photoshop .PSD files. And, when I say the app is devoid of bells and whistles, well, that’s exactly the case.
What you won’t find are image quality options (handy for .PNG or .JPG files) or anything else other than the option to select a specific destination folder for the converted files to be stored.
Most Mac graphic or photo apps have conversion options. Even Preview, available with OS X, has conversion options, though not as many, but the .JPG at least has a quality level slider bar. Still, it’s hard to beat the price and converting images from this to whatever is about as easy as it gets.
