How to Manage Photos with SimplePhoto:
The first step, of course would be to open up the images that you want to manipulate with the help of this free batch image converter and editor. To do this, you can either click Add Photos if you want to add them individually, or the Add Dir button if you want to add entire directory at once.
We’ve decided to open up an entire folder, and all the images were loaded just fine. To manage photos more easily we’ve chosen the Day grouping, and images were divided into date categories, dates when they were created. For the extension, We picked .png, and we’ve decided to increase the size, as you can see in the screenshot above. Once that we’ve set everything up, we clicked on Run.
Both the size of the images and their extension has been successfully changed. Images didn’t lose quality, and the conversion didn’t take very long time, around 30 seconds for 13 images, which is very fast.
SimplePhoto, like the name of the application suggests it is a very simple photo editor. It works just fine, and it’s true to its word, meaning that it’s not very complicated to use.
