March 27th, 2023
Converseen, the cross-platform image converter, and resizer, has now been updated to version 0.9.10.0, by adding some improved WebP features, and now it’s also possible to remove EXIF metadata after every conversion or change of format process.
Converseen is an open-source cross-platform batch image processor that allows you to convert, resize, rotate, and flip an infinite number of images with a mouse click.
WebP is an image file format developed by Google and intended as a replacement for JPEG, PNG, and GIF file formats. It supports both lossy and lossless compression, as well as animation and alpha transparency.
Google announced the WebP format in September 2010 and released the first stable version of its supporting library in April 2018. (Source: Wikipedia).
In Converseen 0.9.10.0 is now possible to customize the WebP quality settings, it’s possible to decide to enable or disable the lossless conversion, choose the compression method and enable or disable the dithering processing option.
The WebP format features a wide range of options, and most of them will be included in the future.
In Converseen 0.9.10.0 is also possible to remove the EXIF metadata when processing images. It uses the internal ImageMagick -strip function combined with the -auto-orient operator to restore the correct orientation of the image when needed.
Converseen 0.9.10.0 is widely available in the repositories of the most popular Linux distributions, it’s also available as AppImage, Snap, and Flatpak.
Moreover, it’s also available for Windows as an installable application or portable application.
