Canon Image Converter is an informal term for the newly designed Total Image Converter. One reason why it is informal is that it covers a much broader spectrum of formats, both raw and compressed. Created by Canon cams, CR2 and CRW formats are used by professional photographers, who see the difference in quality between uncompressed and compressed formats. Raw files are much larger in size, and most users prefer to save them in JPEG and TIFF.
Total Image Converter converts Canon RAW CR2/CRW files to BMP, JPEG, JPEG 2000, GIF, ICO, PCX, PXM, TGA, RAW, PDF, TIFF, and a few other formats. For this reason, it is considered to be the most flexible image converter.
If you have obtained this Canon Image Converter, you have all reasons to be proud and happy. Total Image Converter has a built-in image viewer, by aid of which you can evaluate output quality. You can also use thumbnails.
The program has a robust and intuitive user interface. Batch mode permits you to convert as many files as you need in one go. Command line support permits you to manage CRW and CR2 files from within other programs. The handy wizard will help you resize, rotate and crop your CRW file as you see fit.
Converting Canon to TIFF and JPEG
Conversion is no great trouble. All you need to do is select your files and specify the output format. Select a folder in the folder tree and check the files, which you would like to convert. In order to convert images in batch, click Check All. All the files will be check-marked automatically.
Select your target format in the format bar on top of the interface, or use the Convert menu. View your files via the built-in viewer. Here you can compare input and output quality.
The wizard will offer you a lot of options. Apart from cropping, turning and sizing images, you can put watermarks on them and add comments, dates and logos, using a broad palette of fonts.
When you have made your settings, click Start to launch conversion. It takes seconds for the program to convert a few files. Most interesting, the tool converts many images to TIFF, JPEG and other formats, almost as fast as a few files. This program integrates into Windows, so you can convert your images right from the desktop. You can launch it from within any other program by aid of command line.
Total Image Converter is shareware. A free trial version is available online, which you can download and use for 30 days. The licensed version is updated automatically.
