Changing Picture File Format
Output picture format
Supported output picture formats are the same as for input: JPG, BMP,
TIFF, PNG, PCX, TGA.
Skip pictures with same
format as output
With this option enabled the program will skip all selected pictures
that are already in the format selected for output.
picture qualities are available for JPG files: low (highest
compression), medium, high and best (lowest compression).
If you enable Max file size option you will be able
the target size for output JPG files. For example, this may be useful
when you are preparing pictures for uploading to web services
maintain a limit on acceptable file size. There are two important
things to note about this option. One is that if you want to control
output file size then you can not control the picture quality so for
large resolution pictures and restricted file size you can end up with
poor quality output. The other thing to note is speed of processing
pictures that will be significantly slower when this option is enabled
because the program has to try different levels of JPG compression to
get a file size that is close to the target you set.
destination folder you can choose a custom folder (by default the
program will use "...\My Documents\My Pictures\Photo Gadget Pro") or
same as source folder (in other words the folder where the
original file is stored).
you choose new file name option then the program will take the original
picture's file name and add a suffix "_cnv" to it. For example, if the
original picture's file name was "London panorama 12.jpg" then the
program will save the converted version as "London panorama
12_cnv.jpg". However, if you choose the same as original option, then
there will be no change in the original picture's file name. In that
case if the converted version is going to be saved to a
folder that also happens to be the one where the original picture file
is stored then the original picture file will be overwritten and lost
(of course, this will happen only if the chosen output picture
format is the same as the original and you might want to do that on
purpose to lower JPG quality to get smaller files).
