Graphic Converter 7 from Lemke Software GmbH was released in early October. The user interface has been completely rewritten in Cocoa, and version 7 touts several new features including a map for geodata, multiple processor support and stepless zooming of preview images.
According to Thorsten Lemke, the developer, “Many users have been asking us to produce a modern user interface for GraphicConverter for a while now. Here it is at last: GraphicConverter 7 comes with a completely new user interface. Four programmers spent a whole year redesigning the browser and all of the dialog boxes.”
