To adapt such images for sharing, printing or editing, they should be converted to some more common format, such as JPEG, PNG or other.

Right on the website an installation exe file is available, user just needs to download it and open. Installation wizard will do the rest. User will be not asked to enter any license key at the beginning, conversions can be run without it for the first 30 days. The interface is built so that user always knows what to do:
On the left the folder tree is placed, and everyone can navigate through the folders to find the one with source images for conversion. As opposite to other converters that have browse popups, here you do everything in one window. Files of selected folder will be displayed in the central tab in thumbnail or list view. If your camera is connected to computer, its memory drive will be also available through the program’s navigation tree. This is very convenient, as you do not have to copy-paste camera shots to local memory storage before conversion. This way it saves your time and memory space.
The list of supported formats is located on the top, in the toolbar. There are about 30 formats supported. The most popular ones are listed right on the top, the rest is hidden under 'Other' dropdown. Each format has its own parameters, and Total Image Converter provides ability to adjust every option supported by this or that format. This is essentially important for professionals who often need to gain the exact formatting of their photos. However, this program is a great chance for beginners to improve the quality and style of their graphic files, as all these options are provided in comfortable and easy-to-manage way.

If using these options, the program will not change format of initial photos, it will save the changes in native format. If a user needs to edit image and convert it to another format, he can do this simultaneously using conversion wizard.

Each target format has specific differences, as they provide different facilities. All this is reflected in program’s UI. It is possible to convert RAW photos from any cameras to:
Batch RAW Conversion
One of the biggest advantages of Total Image Converter is ability to convert batches of RAW photos like one file. For instance, user can convert all photos from his camera in one conversion cycle. The program will generate a copy for each original in selected format. Conversion can be made with saving original characteristics or in accordance with preset properties. Definitely, when moving from RAW format to another one like JPEG, be ready for losses in quality due to intensive compression. However, Total Image Converter has powerful data processing engine that helps to save maximum of original quality alongside with significant compression in size. User can regulate quality level according to his needs. Here is the comparison of original RAW file and its JPEG copy with the highest quality level:
If user needs to convert some photo quickly from the desktop, he even doesn’t need to launch the application. There is a ‘Convert to’ option in the right-click file menu that appears there after Total Image Converter is installed. Also RAW files can be converted from the command line.
Fair PriceAs a rule, a RAW converter is given to a customer in the package with the camera. Native RAW converters are highly limited in terms of image adjustments, data conversion speed and supported formats. User can spend hours on converting all his photos using the native application. Total Image Converter is much more advantageous in this sense.
Expensive RAW converters like Adobe Lightroom ($300) or DxO Optics Pro ($170 - $300) feature very complex user interface, completely hard for beginners. User can simply get lost in all options and will not be able to produce effective conversion without professional graphic design skills. The price of Total Image Converter is only $24.90, and it does the same job in far easier way. Of course it may lack some specific options available in elite converters, but that is why it costs 10-20 times less.
With Total Image Converter you can choose any graphic format for your digital photos, adjust colors, compression, size and protect from unauthorized sharing - all done in bathes.
