NConvert 6.50
A batch image processor for the command line

NConvert is a command line tool for image batch processing.

The program can crop, resize and rotate images; tweak brightness, contrast and colour; apply sharpen or blur filters, add watermarks, convert images formats and more (80+ commands in total).

NConvert can work its magic on just about any file, too. The program reads more than 500 image formats, and can export to more than 70.

You will have to spend a little time learning how NConvert works, of course, but it's really not too difficult. Here's an example.

nconvert -out gif pic1.jpg

You can probably guess that this takes the file pic1.jpg and saves it in the GIF format.

Let's get more advanced.

nconvert -out gif -dither -colors 256 *.jpeg

Now we're converting a set of JPEG files to GIF, and defining how the colour palette will be created.

And now try this.

nconvert -out png -resize 200% 200% *.jpeg

There's no need to spell this out: the English-like syntax makes it all very obvious.

As you can see, there's no need to be put off by NConvert's command line origins. There is some work to be done in understanding its features, but you'll figure it out quickly enough, and there's more than enough batch processing power here to justify your efforts.
 

Verdict:

An extremely powerful batch image processing tool which is also fairly easy to use (by command line standards, anyway).

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
