ImBatch is a Windows freeware for batch image processing. With this tool, you can convert, re-size, rotate as well as perform other operations on a bunch of images in a single operation – i.e. in batch mode.
Free Batch Image Processing Software
There are two important features of ImBatch which makes it one of the better image processing tools. First of all, its user-friendly interface makes the whole experience better and second is its task bar, which consists of a various interesting features.
The task structure of the taskbar lets the user make a processing sequence. The imaging functions are known as Tasks in ImBatch. You can resize, convert or apply water mark on images using this software. You can define task lists in its task bar. You can also change the order of the tasks mentioned in the list as well as add some tasks more than once. Some tasks can be turned off or on or can be included or excluded as per your requirement. Some task parameters can be hidden showing only the necessary ones. And the best part is, you can undo or re-do all the changes made in the task list.
ImBatch can perform nearly 20 different operations on images that are typically needed by us and can handle all image formats including MP, TIFF, GIF, JPEG, PCX, PNG, TGA, PIX, JP2, J2K, PSD, WDP, and HDP.
ImBatch also comes with 3 official plugins namely JBig, DCRaw and ImageMagick that extend the number of supported image file formats. If you enable all these plugins, ImBatch supports more than 100 image file formats, including the RAW ones received from many digital cameras.
Another feature is Live Preview’ When you perform all necessary operations of the image, you certainly want to see how will be the resulting image. This freeware lets you see the resulting image whenever you perform an active task. The preview window automatically updates all the changes that you make.
Integration with Windows Shell Context Menu
ImBatch lets you integrate commands to the Windows context menu. Users can process images with different operations or tasks and saved in BSV file format directly from Windows Explorer.
In order to enhance the functions or features, users can also use command line parameters.
