Limagito File Mover as image converter to many different formats

Image converter to many different formats using Limagito File Mover Version v2023.0.11.20.

Do you know that our File Mover tool is able to convert a loaded image file to another format. The setup of such an automated task is really easy.

  1. Search for an image file using one of our Source options
  2. Add IMG (Image) as Destination
  3. Add Output Action within this IMG Destination
  4. Enable ‘Change File Extension’ and add the format file extension you need. For example: .png
  5. Done

Some file types we currently support as export: Jpeg, Jpeg2000, PNG, TIFF, BMP, WBMP, PS, PDF, PCX, DCX, TGA, PXM, ICO, HDP, GIF, DICOM, …

Regarding IMG (Image) as destination, we are always open to new ideas so please let us know.

On our roadmap currently we have:

  • Parameters (Compression, Quality, ..)
  • EXIF Metadata

Some screenshots to get you started:

  • Please add WIN as source to scan a Windows folder for images (can be any other Source too):

  • In this example we only want to convert .jpg files, so add a File Name Include filter:

  • Add ‘IMG’ (Image) as Destination:
