Have a lot of images that you want to resize, rotate, compress, change the format of, or maybe add a watermark to all at once? FastStone Image Viewer, Editor, and Batch Converter, available here, is a great little piece of free software that is great for use in managing and adjusting your collection of photographs and images, but really shines as a batch image converter. When opened, the software displays its main screen; a typical image organizer, but one of its most powerful tools is the Batch Convert / Rename Dialog. This can be opened under the Tools pull-down menu.
FastStone Batch Convert / Rename Dialog
From here you can select your files or entire folders of images to convert. Select the output folder and whether or not you want to rename the output images. The output format can be changed, along with additional settings per format for extra optimization if needed. The output formats supported are .jpg, .bmp, .gif, .png, .jp2, .tif, and .pdf. For additional conversion settings, select the Advanced Options checkbox and its associated button. From here you can enable all sorts of options and adjust their settings:
Once you're ready to go, click the Convert button and watch the progress as each image is converted and now you're done! What a great little piece of free software!
