ImageBlocks: a simple image converter
FREE when you register DialogBlocks
ImageBlocks makes it easy for you to convert from
PNG, BMP, JPG, ICO (Windows only), XPM, TIFF, format
files to PNG, BMP, JPG, XPM, or TIFF files.
Download it here.
Use the file browser to select the file you wish to
convert. You can conveniently navigate between
folders using Folder history, which stores
the last 20 folders.
Select the destination file type in the
Convert to control. If you wish, select a
different Destination folder by first
unchecking Use source folder and then
clicking on ... to browse for a folder.
You can specify the final image size if you
uncheck Use original size. This is particularly
useful for ICO (Windows icon) files, so you
can specify for example 32x32 or 16x16, and
the appropriate image will be extracted.
Click on Convert to convert the new file.
If the destination file is in the same folder
as the source, the destination file will now be
selected in the browser.
You can edit a selected image in an associated
editor by clicking on the tool or File|Edit Image
menu item. The application that is started depends
on what is currently associated with that image type.
You can edit XPM files as text by clicking on
the Text editor tab when an XPM file is
selected. XPMs have a simple form using C++
syntax, and you may wish to refine the file
directly, for example substituting None
for a hex colour in order to make that colour
transparent. Click on the tool
or File|Save menu item to save any edits. You
may need to select another image, then select the original
image to see any changes in the image view.
Copying files to the clipboard
You can copy the selected image to the clipboard
using the tool. You can then paste the
image into an image editor, for example. Note
