Changing Picture File Format

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.
Output file options

JPG quality

    Four 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 to set the target size for output JPG files. For example, this may be useful when you are preparing pictures for uploading to web services that 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

    For destination folder you can choose a custom folder (by default the program will use "...\My Documents\My Pictures\Photo Gadget Pro") or the same as source folder (in other words  the folder where the picture's original file is stored). 

File name

If 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).
