  1. I’ve been a paid customer since System 7!

    Graphic Converter is the only shareware I have ever kept and paid for.

    My license is due for a paid update… I think it’s time to upgrade.

    Thanks Thorsten! You rock!

    1. I keep lots of paid utilities on board and boy do they help:

      Carbon Copy Cloner
      Little Snitch

      And those are just half of them. All worthwhile paid items.

      1. The number one utility is DiskWarrior. Rebuilds the system directory. My iMac just two days ago wouldn’t boot up after shutting down on it’s own. Checked with DiskWarrior and it found numerous directory problems and rebuilt it and I was golden within 15-30 min. It’s by far the best utility to own.

  2. tried GC few times, didn’t like.
    the whole interface is not typical Mac.
    when editing, the result of every adjustment is not visible as you do it(like in PSE), but after you moved the slider.
    I understand, GC is mostly for converting and resizing, and it does them very well, but for editing, it’s not a tool.

  3. Love GC. Bought my first license in 1998. I cannot tell you how many thousands of times I have used it. So many free upgrades, such a useful app. Thorsten truly deserves kudos. I will upgrade today.

  4. GraphicConverter is one of those limited programs that I’ve stayed with and kept on through the 7 days. As such, it (and the others, like Thoth and Ircle and BBEdit and Audacity) remains within a comfort zone of experience and usability that newer apps, like Pixelmator and Colloquy and Unison) miss. IMHO.

  5. Agreed opsonso

    I have been with GC since version 1 or 2. It has been my signel most used, and BEST software purchase EVER. The BEST value for the money in 20 of buying software.
    I have stayed with version 6 for a while and I think it is time to upgrade again.

    Thorsten — YOU ROCK! Keep it up!
