This has the ability to 'Watch a Folder' and automatically do an action to any files that you move into the watched folder. EG -
You move PDF's into watched folder, and the program automatically converts them into JPGs, and say places the JPGs into another specified folder.
And you can tell the program to delete the PDF after it was processed.
The bad news is, you need to create a config file, to tell the program what to do.
I have been unable to master creation of the .cfg file.
I wrote to support, but have had no reply yet.
Anyone know how to do this ?

I just converted an image into an icon for a desktop shortcut. Worked flawlessly. This is a keeper.

In my life I never used more than 5 image formats and that is true today, TIF, LZW, PNG, JPEG and occasionally PSD and BMP and that is it. Who needs 50+ formats and why?

Reply   |   Comment by Joe  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+16)

Joe, Exactly! But although I might use BMP, and GIF in addition to JPG and RAW, I can't imagine I'd use anything else.

However, as MIKE #6, mentioned "OCR" as one of the functions -- I got it for THAT reason, as it certainly could be useful when doing research for a book...

But why on earth do they say in the attached NOTES file you have to register before 18th July 2019?? It doesn't make any sense -- unless it was originally scheduled for that date. Someone should have been watching -- or we'll all have to jump into our time machines to comply!

Joe,

>"Who needs 50+ formats and why?"

The point is not that anyone needs 50+ formats. Almost no one "needs" 50 formats unless they are in the business of converting a wide range of formats to a more common format.

Over the course of history in graphic file evolution, there have been many manufacturers that have created their own format, but not with the intent that images in their format would ever need converting to anything else. Generally, they were to work within a specific program or specific hardware. For them and their intended users, everything worked just fine. It was only later on that someone wanted to convert one of those special formats to something else. As graphic program developers reverse engineered the various formats, they could save the data in a different format.

Two somewhat competing programs were Irfanview and Xnview, both freeware programs, and both adding more and more formats that they could handle. It is due in part to these two freeware programs that we now have a few other commercial graphic file conversion programs.

One example of a unique graphic file format was created by a company that wanted to sell a product that would change the desktop background daily, but they also wanted to sell the images you could use. You could not use any other graphic images because their file format was unique, and you could not use their images in anything else. It didn't take long for the experienced developers of Irfanview and Xnview to be able to decode those images. The creator of the original format requested Irfanview remove the format from their program, and they did so. Xnview left it in. I noticed later on that Irfanview added the format back in. The original creator is probably out of business, but some of those files likely still exist out there somewhere.

The more formats a converter program can list, gives it ranking in a way, so it is natural to list as many formats as they have been able to support. This reaConverter program is a mish-mash of parts to support the wide range of graphic file formats they do. Naturally, they are going to advertise the larger numbers, not because any one person needs them, but because those file formats have been created, reverse engineered, and now can be saved in other formats.

Most of us will convert images to the same small list you use. When we need to convert an odd-ball format, wouldn't it be a disappointment to start your image converter and find that it is limited to 5 or 6 formats?

Downloaded, installed just fine. Supports a huge 651 different formats. Definitely a keeper. Thanks.

Jack,

Their description on this page (above) does not do justice as to what all ReaConverter claims it can do. Most of it is common image processing/editing stuff: adjust gamma, brightness, contrast, crop, rotate, etc.

A review of these two pages (which include nice descriptions of what various formats are used for):

https://www.reaconverter.com/features/
https://www.reaconverter.com/howto/

...indicate that it also claims to produce searchable-text PDF documents from scanned-in images (OCR), convert between raster and vector formats, work with various 2D & 3D CAD files, RAW files, watermark, postscript and plotting files, reduce color bit-depth, Gerber (GBR) format for printed circuit boards (PCBs), etc.

(disclaimer: I have not yet tested it, so can't comment on how well it works.)

All such capabilities have been available in part via other titles offered here on GOTD, or elsewhere as free software.

However, if this works well it may be about the only jack-of-all-trades consistent-interface single-title package needed for most any purpose and, as such, worth the sales price. This would be especially true in office settings where IT managers prefer to keep the variety of installed products to a minimum for both software management/support and also training purposes.

Jack,

takes to much space for an image converter.

Reply   |   Comment by Samuel  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+15)

LOL! This comment takes up too much space!

Jack, lol

Samuel, Not at all, the PDF and RAW functionality is going to add bulk to the program, 200mb is nothing these days.

Name a program that has all these features with a smaller footprint?

Reply   |   Comment by David  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+4)

David,

Although I agree with your statement "Name a program...", after installation the folder properties for "C:\Program Files (x86)\reaConverter 7 Standard" reports:

Size: 594 MB (623,463,302 bytes)
Size on disk: 597 MB (627,032,064 bytes)

...a pretty big-sized chunk! They should start mentioning the as-installed size in the requirements box.

Perhaps they could work on reducing the static storage space footprint of ReaConverter by optimizing their code or by dynamically unpacking/repacking only those portions of the conversion libraries needed when in operation.

Also, FWIW, although there is no mention I could find on the ReaConverter website, from the purchase discount coupon code in the Readme.txt file this apparently is related to the Tipard.com family of products which, in the past, have been pretty good.

(Whoops, forgot to finish my thought!)

...so with the 50% discount (for any Tipard product) ReaConverter is only $25, not bad.

Reply   |   Comment by HMarx  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-3)

Yes this takes up nearly 700Mbytes once installed because it is composed of many open source conversion modules from many different sources so has all sorts of dependancies and data files each needs to operate rather than a single conversion engine the developer was responsible for and a single set of dependencies. It also has a decent open source OCR package called Tesseract included with multiple language learning data files that take up around 100Mbytes... For some reason this developer does not feel the need to publish version number increases with their product but this is a newer version than the previous 2 giveaways of this all of which were called exactly the same as this making it look like nothing has changed when quite alot has really! And I agree with Jack... his comment does take up too much space ;-) yours however was quite relevant to the ever growing product in this giveaway.

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+5)

HMarx, also look in the system appdata folder for it too there is another 100MBytes of the tesseract OCR engine in there too!

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

David, Installed footprint including all the folders it spews 3rd party modules into is approaching 700MBytes NOT the 223Mbyte download size or the imaginary 200mb you quote which has no bearing on the footprint size of todays giveaway! It is so massive because it comprises of many disparate 3rd party utilities spawned from a GUI this developer has produced. IF this developer had designed and developed all these functions into a single static linked program it would have been MUCH smaller but would have required a much more skilled developer than just the simple GUI shell developer this needed. Technically this is not "a program that has all these features" as it is a collection of various third party programs hidden under the GUI shell.

Had no issues installing.
Had a go with a few images seams substantial enough to be of use.

Product price on their site is way too high. I could get a 3d photo editor no limitations for 29£ max if I wanted to spend money.

Good Ui. Simple and to the point with advanced editing in panels. Not berried though so you don't need a wiki to find how to find something.

Loved the way in which they have set it up for RAW image files. So some thought has gone into it. However, the options for HDR images is underwhelming.

Overall a useful software especially as a giveaway however a bit pricy if you haft to pay. Take £10 of the price and then you're looking at something that would be very compelling.
