  • Converseen is an open source batch image processor for Windows and Linux

    Batch tools are efficient time-savers when you need to manipulate more than one or two images provided that the intended operations are identical. Converseen is an open source image processor that's available for Windows and Linux that may help you in that case. [...] The program can be used to convert, resize, rotate and flip several images with a few clicks. It is based on ImageMagick, the open source image editor. Converseen's interface is divided into two panes: the actions panel is to the left, and to the right you have the convert list. A menu bar and a toolbar are placed at the top of the screen. Use the File menu or the Open Images/Add Images button to get starte, or just drag and drop some files to the right pane. It will display the file name, type, and size of each individual image you added to the program. A checkbox is placed next to each image in the list, and only the marked ones will be converted. Use the Edit menu to check/uncheck all files in a single click.
