It delivers what is necessary and that is what matters in the end. It is possible to use the batch converter to recreate images with different resolutions and variations for clients. This helps photograph professionals create stunning pictures and presentations without too much sweat.
One can also upgrade to the ReaConverter Standard Edition, after initially opting for the ReaConverter Lite Edition. The Lite Edition cost only $24.95 and the upgrade will cost $25. However, in the Lite Edition supports only common image formats like TIFF, JPEG, BMP and GIF. This limits your writing capabilities. Image editing is also restricted to the basic rotate, crop, mirror, sharpness, border, brightness and contrast adjustments. For advanced editing like JPEG repair, watermark, automatic crop, one should have the Standard or the Pro version.
However, some of the distinctive features of the ReaConverter Standard Edition that make this software useful are things like built-in thumbnail creator, color transparency settings, multipage image settings, multitask conversion and customizable renaming tool. The Pro version has additional built in scheduler and Command line interface program.
For making corrections and adjusting settings, a variety of tools like the Red-Eye correction and the RGB curve wizard exist. For people who are serious about photography, this is definitely an asset. As for the professionals, they seemed impressed enough. One has a 15-day free trial period. If one is spending $300 to $750 for a camera, it should be worth trying out the software that is $50.00. Good pictures do not happen one creates them.
