New features

  • Metadata Juggler
    With GraphicConverter you have always been able to edit the metadata of your images and move them to other fields. Now it's even easier. With the new Metadata Juggler dialog you can effortlessly combine several editing steps, save them and open them again at any time, just as you already know from the actions. Your advantage: You can, for example, delete parts of the metadata such as exposure time and aperture in one editing step and copy the contents of an IPTC field into another field, etc. The images are not opened and resaved. This means that there is no loss of quality with compressed formats such as JPG and HEIC, and RAW images can also be edited.
  • Automatic cropping
    Just like on iPhones and iPads, you can now automatically crop people and objects and insert them into another image, for example. You won't believe your eyes.
  • Vector objects
    Many have been waiting for this: lines, circles and rectangles can now be created as vector objects, optionally with a shadow. Save your image in GraphicConverter format /gcimgd) to be able to change the vector objects later.
  • Torn edge improved
    If you don't want to show an image in its entirety, for example, because of space limitations, you can make the edge look like it's been torn off. Simply draw a zigzag line with the mouse. GraphicConverter tears off the lower part and adds a shadow. A new feature is that the torn-off part is moved to the right so that you can position it freely.
  • Import and export all settings
    If you move to a different or new Mac, you can now easily take all settings and saved actions, etc. with you.
  • Multiple conversion: Favorites
    In Convert & Modify, you can now save your regularly used folders as favorites.
  • GainMap gain data
    HEIC images can now be saved with GainMap gain data.
  • Crosshairs In order to be able to read the mouse position at any time during editing, a crosshair can be switched on in the settings, whose lines always go to the edge of the image. This makes it easier for you to orientate yourself while working.
  • Convert via drag and drop
    Our new dialog makes quick conversions even easier. Drag your images onto the dialog and sit back. GraphicConverter does the conversion and performs an action at the same time if you wish.
  • Update metadata only
    If you have only changed the IPTC/XMP metadata, you can now save these changes without resaving the entire file. This way you avoid unnecessary quality losses with formats like the JPG or the HEIC format.
