Doesn't work, no help, plenty of freeware that perform batch processing far better than this for free. Adds startup program that promotes other software and slows startup. So definitely not worth $27. Unistalled.

? Raw image import is also supported. Just select the group Camera RAW (...) with the arrow down button.

Strange thing again in Idea Informer. 34 votes in favour of "Have it place a transparant watermark", but the function IS in the program and called Opacity.

Lu Hulu - No. 17 -- You can use the free Sysinternals "Autoruns" to control anything that starts up when Windows starts. It's an excellent program and I use it frequently. Be careful, though, and don't disable any item that you don't understand.

I really do not understand why most of these software think they are so important that they must Start up with Windows everytime and leave no option for the user not to allow that.

Installed, registered, and ran fine on Win7Pro x64. Two drawbacks:

1. Does not support drag-n-drop addition of images.
2. Proportional resize feature only works if you input a height. It does not accept width input.

I tested it on a batch of 75 scanned images I processed a couple of weeks ago using another program, and had the program add a border and add a bit of contrast. It ran quickly and the output looked pretty good. I should note that all of the images were the same size to begin with, so I did not test the program's ability to resize images of different initial sizes.

As noted by others, the interface could use some help, particularly the output screen...it was difficult to tell what I needed to do there.

If all you need is resizing, consider Fotosizer - http://www.fotosizer.com/ - which is donationware.

Boxoft Batch Photo Processor is a practical minded app that works -- by practical I mean that it doesn't have the maybe fancier design we've seen on some other batch processing or watermarking software. It seems to do well with jpg images, but .png files were almost 2x the original Photoshop file sizes [for a flipped photo with nothing that should add more data]. Settings for output formats are mostly limited to 16 bit, but using "Same as origin file" output was reported as 24 bit in properties & by MediaInfo. As soon as you install Boxoft Batch Photo Processor you *might* want to do one or both, deleting the Boxtools folder in ProgramData [win7] or All Users\ Application Data [XP], &/or removing the BoxTools Run key entry in the registry -- otherwise BoxTools [an app that tells you about available software] will be installed the next time Windows starts. If you're unsure about the location of the folder use search -- if you're unsure about the registry key use one of the utilities that's been on GOTD for managing what starts with Windows, or get Autoruns from Microsoft.com.

Boxoft Batch Photo Processor comes with a short PDF manual & a matching pdfbppdoc.mht file that opens in your web browser using the Start Menu shortcut or the Help button in the program. You can find knowledgebase articles on the app here http://goo.gl/Ge7FZ . Otherwise it's not hard to use -- after importing files or folders you go to the list of included filters, where double-clicking one brings up that filter's settings window. You build a list of filters you want to apply, set their order [if/when it matters], & proceed to step 3, setting the output names, formats, & destinations. While you can overlay images, text, & dates, you control their placement either using presets or entering coordinates -- you can't simply drag into position. And in Vista/7 you may have very minor problems browsing for images -- I couldn't access any folders in the My Documents view that opened by default, though browsing to actual folders/files worked fine.

On laptops &/or netbooks etc. with very limited storage, the small size of Boxoft Batch Photo Processor would be a definite plus -- as installed the app's folder has 12 files at ~5 MB, but delete everything [i.e. 3 samples, uninstall files etc.] but the .exe file, english.lng, & MMPDF.dll, and you'll wind up with a footprint less than 1.5 MB. Setup adds 3 keys -- 1 for the app, 1 under ASProtect, & 1 for uninstall [with the installer opening up the web browser I monitored a total of almost 400 new [mostly garbage] entries in 7, ~150 in XP]. I have used Portable App Creator on an earlier version of Boxoft Batch Photo Processor to make it portable [portableapps.com format].

There are plenty of apps that batch process photos, from utilities like today's GOTD to image editors to image browsers/cataloging software -- which type of app is better depends on what you need & want for whatever you're doing, e.g. if you're already in XnView doing something else you won't want to exit just to run Boxoft's utility, but for something quick, on-the-fly you might or might not prefer their Batch Photo Processor... there's no harm in having both, & much more in your graphics/image handling toolbox. FWIW I've long had XnView on my hard drive, but not using it much or often the batch processing stuff takes me longer because I 1st have to find it & figure out [again] how it works -- because of that utilities like Boxoft Batch Photo Processor are often easier & quicker for me to use. And if you're tight on space, there's a big difference between < 1.5 MB & the full version of XnView's 42 MB [&/or even the "Small" version at 9 MB].

I can't believe you need to originally pay for this...it should always be free. As mentioned by the others, FastStone Image Viewer and XnView are MUCH better than Boxoft Batch Photo Processor. Even Ashampoo Photo Commander 5 FREE is better than this. Maybe it is good for novice users or simple processing, but advance users will prefer the other softwares.

Is there a function to rename a whole batch of images? My suggestion: a conversion process that will rename the photos to the dates taken.

I use a free program named Irfanview Works great!

Great but lacks the ability to place the filename in the body. Using the {filename} tag gives the same filename to all the pictures.

Boxoft Co. but you are competing with freeware which does the same, not saying your soft is bad but you need to offer more.
Thanks anyways GAOTD and Boxoft Co.

Very nice, easy to use program. Replace the explorer-like interface? With what? A long list of filters, like in Pixo? Suppose you don't like folders on your computer either, one list of files is easier? Don't think so. Some things can't be improved, and this is the best way, neatly and ordened together.

Judging by the few comments received this an almost me-too product at a high price when the very capable and popular IrfanView and XnView are available at no cost.

Irfanview can do batch processing- However I have not tried it as I did not have any occasion to do so. Incidentally GAOTD has given some very good software offerings. I always visit the site on a daily basis.

I have seen many comments offering free alternatives. Free alternatives have a very good advantage. In case the hard disk has to be formatted or if a person buys a new computer, the software downloaded through GAOTD becomes unusable, whereas the freeware can be used without any problem. Through this forum I would like to recommend the site Gizmo's freeware reviews : http://www.techsupportalert.com/
The site reviews a number of software programs under different categories.

Haven't downloaded it because apparently it can't add an 8bf plugin directory (I've got hundreds of those filters, over several folders).

A free batch program that would be able to import external filters (and retain the settings of each filter) is really something I have been looking for for ages.

IrfanView? that [with the plugin pack] and XnView are my benchmarks- maybe today I can actually get in a real opinion.

if this doesn't do raw, then FastStone Photo Resizer is in the running too. hmm.

To Vladimir (#1 ): xnView can batch process the images, and YOU CAN select the quality of the output image. (Instead of using "Convert Into...", use "Convert", and click the "Settings" button.)

Anyway, xnView is an excellent free viewer and simple editor, with batch processing, TWAIN scan and screenshot supports, and more. Much more powerful than Boxoft Batch Photo Processor.

If you want to resize a lot of your photos (you shoot RAW + JPEG, and JPEG is needed only by you, as a convenient reference for RAW file), you can use a free alternative - XnView (www.xnview.com). But you have to install an addon for XnView, to make this feature work. This is easy, free, fully configurable, and gives excellent results. The only drawback: you can't choose a level of compression of resized image.
