    Fast download and easy installation. Tried a few different file formats and mixed them in the same batch to process, works at lightening speed, easy to use not in the least complicated, worked exactly as described. A joy to use.

    The opening screen here promises "... Deep neural network based Super-resolution ..." but that is not available in the version offered today.

    Will the vendor return with an opportunity for us to explore the "... Deep neural network based Super-resolution ..."?

    That and raw conversion were the only things I was interested in exploring as possibly enhancing my stable of imaging tools, and I've discovered that free IrfanView is more flexible and powerful for large batches including subdirectories, and free Google Picasa is more flexible and power for small batches of one directory at a time, than this program, both of those free alternatives offering auto and manual exposure settings, sharpening, resizing, of course, filtering, especially for grayscale conversion using the equivalent of traditional black-and-white-photography filters of red, green, yellow, amber filters.

    So all that's left for me to explore is upsampling, which was promised as the tease, but not delivered in the download.

    Is the vendor going to come back and let us try again, only with the full version next time?

    Thanks for exploring this and sharing.

    Usually I don't leave comments, but felt compelled to state the following after installation of this program. Installed on Windows 64bit without any problem whatsoever. The program launched in the correct manner and the UI (user interface) is well laid out in such a manner that no learning curve was necessary. That is, that I was able to load an image (WEBP) and convert to a .png as easy as if I had used the program many times before. BRAVO, good program with ease of use and this is a keeper.

    What does rasterizing fonts even mean?

    "... You can rasterize vector files (SVG, TTF and OTF) into pixel-based bitmaps and output them as PDFs, as well as set the size when rasterizing ..."

    ... and I would want to do that to a font because ...?

    ... and it doesn't happen when printing to a PDF anyway by any other means because?

    Otherwise, this is just an arduous non-visual diminished copy of ... what, not even anywhere close to the features and benefits of free IrfanView or free Google Picasa?

    Huh?

    Nope, I just tried the software, and I found it to be completely unusable, no preview of images I'm hunting for to work with, only a tiny image on screen once I load an image file, no idea where the controls are or what the effects of doing anything would be, no preview of changes, no nothing, took a input 16 megapixel 3:2 aspect ratio raw file and produced a 0.7 megapixel square output without warning or preview ... and the menus say [ Delete ], but right click offered [ Remove file ] and [ Delete ] as separate controls, implying that [ Delete ] will actually eliminate my original input files, ouch.

    And it's easy to resize the screen, just hover over the lower right corner until a diagonal arrow appears, click, hold, drag, resize, then separately move the top of the windows down into view, I have a 1,366x768 standard laptop screen, and no, this program has no idea where it lands, no smarts whatsoever, BUT that does not matter because I cannot imagine anyone this programs twice, and I'm here to save anyone from even opening it once!

    I cannot even imagine a hacker using this as a personal tool.

    Seriously?

    Do these programmers not even try the current free alternatives?

    Free IrfanView.

    Free Google Picasa.

    Please, start somewhere, and do not even think of releasing a product until you are equal or better.

    Thank you.

    Downloaded & installed fine.

    However, on initial launch on my high-DPI display the title bar and menu just below it were past the top of the display screen area so I could not drag the overall window down.

    I used the "trick" of right-click on its taskbar icon to reveal the move option, then used the keyboard cursor keys to bring the menus and title bar down into view.

    The next issue was the vertical size of the window which now extended out of sight below the screen. I attempted to resize the vertical dimension shorter by click-grab-dragging the top edge of the title bar down, but surprisingly the window raced away from where the mouse cursor was positioned until the window had totally disappeared out of sight past the bottom!

    I right-clicked on the taskbar icon to close/exit Zeus, but upon re-launching it once again returned to existing off-screen.

    I used the same "trick" once again to use the keyboard cursor keys to move the window back within view.

    There appears to be no way to adjust the vertical dimension of the window. The horizontal dimension can be resized in the normal way (grab an edge or corner and drag it).

    Also, after trying to maximize the window one time it now initially appears maximized every time Zeus is launched (from not running). It does "Restore Down" back to the "remembered" size from a previous run.

    As others mentioned, there is a "Window" menu to adjust the window position horizontally (left, center, right) or vertically (center, reset); but I would prefer getting rid of those options and allowing the user to perform their own sizing in the traditional way (and returning/restoring to that size on next launch).

    Selecting "Reset" from the "Window" menu restores the window position (and size) to the very initial condition where the title bar and menus are once again past the top of the display screen (*sigh*).

    Haven't even tried its intended purpose yet as dealing with this initial impression was so annoying.

    Eric,

    I received your e-mailed link to the installer with your quickly-issued "MDPI fix". It appears to have solved the app's window size/position issues.

    I did have to adjust the Zeus Image Converter (ZIC) file's "Properties" (Compatibility tab > Change high DPI settings) to compensate for my computer's high-DPI display so ZIC would appear normal-sized.

    Thanks!

    Reply   |   Comment by HMarx  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

    To [ Eric ],

    What do you think an MDPI screen is?

    Your program fails to recognize
    - screen size,
    - and taskbar placement,
    on Windows 7 with standard 1,366x768 display, falling off screen and under the taskbar.

    Are you trying to present a bitmap on screen instead of discovering the available x/y coordinates that are
    - actually on screen,
    - available, not used by the operating system, such as the taskbar?

    Either way, you know ... things can be resized, in fact, that's a claim to fame of your program, "... Zeus is the most powerful image ... software on the market, which is dedicated to helping you quickly batch ... process images ... You can ... resize ...".

    Yeah, resize.

    There's software for that.

    Who knew?

    So, tell us, why is it, again, that your resizing program cannot not intelligently resize itself to fit the available space on our display screens?

    - - - - - - - - - -

    Mine:
    Display Diagonal 14.0 Inches (35.56 cm)
    Display Resolution 1,366 x 768 Pixels
    Pixel Density
    112 ppi according to HP specifications
    96 dpi according to [ infobyip. com/detectmonitordpi. php ]
    118 ppi according to [ dpi. lv ]
    111.94 PPI according to [ sven. de/dpi ]

    "MDPI" seems to be an Android reference, maybe 160 dpi, but essentially meaningless because it's not guessing the ppi/dpi that is the problem, it resizing for whatever dots across and dots down are available, regardless of dpi/ppi.

    Is part of the problem here that the programmers are coming from Android and have no idea they've landed in DOS / Windows land?

    Thanks for exploring this and sharing.

    # 2 ...you replied ...."The Center and Reset Size features are really a bug for MDPI screen and will be fixed within 24 hours". Will we be allowed to UPDATE??? I know we cannot upgrade. Also the use of the word resize usually only means downsize (wish that term would be used.) Can the program enlarge item and if so how much larger???
    Thanks for your help.

    Perhaps check on the Vivaldi problem to see if there's someone else with the problem who has found a fix?

    I very much doubt this converter converts from .max images that the Paperport software scanners made. It isn't a popular image extension that I am finding out so my question for this group is if anyone knows any software, preferably freeware, that I can use to convert .max images.

    Reply   |   Comment by Velvet  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-5)

    Velvet, If you open Paperport and right click on a .max file and then click on "save as", you can save the file in many different formats.

    Max to JPG solution
    by jjwj Jul 17, 2009 6:17AM PDT

    I've been looking for a .max to .jpg converter for some time. I just found out that my new scanner software will do this for me: OmniPage SE Version 4.0.
    It accomplishes it in a 3 step batch process. Step 1 was Load Files, where I selected 117 .max files I wanted to convert. Step 2 I left on Automatic. Step 3 I chose Save to File and picked .jpg.
    It converted all the images in one step. It didn't seem to be doing anything for a while, but when the color returns to the Step 3 icon you will have a sequentially numbered set of converted files using the name you chose in Save to File as the prefix.
    While not everyone has OmniPage SE, it did come free with my Canon LiDE 600F.

    DAL, my issue is that I no longer have the paperport software and anyway if I could find the disk it would only work on Win98 or XP. I was able to find the viewer, but it doesn't allow to save in a different format.

    "Deep neural network" - is that just marketing BS, or does it actually mean something?

    Reply   |   Comment by Bruce Fraser  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+13)

    Hi Bruce Fraser,

    You can upscale your images with convolutional neural network to get ultra-high resolution. Currently supports 2x, 3x, 4x and 8x scaling via pre-trained modules.

    Here is an example image, the image on the right is processed by 4x EDSR (Enhanced Deep Super-Resolution Network) module.

    Bruce Fraser, I highly doubt that software costing $30 is going to anything as complex, demanding and cleaver as a neural network, at best it will have some smart programming techniques employed. Neural networks are in the super computer domain.

    Reply   |   Comment by Blackhat  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

    Blackhat, Neural elements (NPU's) are appearing in very cheap SOC's, so by no means the realm of the super computers.

    So we can now have a CPU, GPU and NPU on the same die.

    They are supposed to process AI functions, although the actual definition of AI can be varied.

    There are quite a few niche products out there already using NPU tech for processing, so it is possible that even a cheap software product could take advantage of it, although I would maintain that unless you have a chipset with an NPU then that process cannot function.

    Personally I think the NPU is a bit of a gimmick and would rather see more advances in parallel processing but time will tell how useful it really is.

    Hi TK,

    In our case, IM is only used to read the OpenEXR file format, and LDR.

    ImageMagick's many drawbacks don't apply to our software, but it has good support for OpenEXR with alpha channel.

    Btw, anyone can check IM's licenses from here, we did not violate any of the terms of the IM license.

    We have also added this license to About of our software.
