Thanks to the users feedback, ReaSoft Development has an opportunity to improve their products permanently. In the latest version of ReaConverter we include a new option – “JPEG repair” which is based on the wavelet denoising technology. Due to its universality JPEG is a very far and wide format. Initially it was intended for use in web applications, but now you can come across it everywhere, even in the high-end print production markets. As you may know JPEG format is encoded by lossy compression approach. This means that to achieve smaller file sizes, image data is actually thrown away. Thus, reduction of file size comes with deterioration of image quality. “JPEG repair” option enables to enhance the quality of images and to minimize “noise”, undesired artifacts and negative effects of conversion to JPEG. From now on you can storage your compressed high-quality pictures in JPEG format, without quality loss. This function is performed in Standard and Pro versions only.

ReaSoft Development had a chance to improve all the image editing actions in ReaConverter 5.5. Batch image editing operations are widen now.

You are also provided with the ability to set up personal settings (of use the default) to convert and edit images from the right click menu. To apply these actions you can use the command line or automated conversion and editing processing. Just imagine how much time you may save working with batch mode if you need to perform edition operations on many images.

Auto Image editing with ReaConverter 5.5 allows automatically rotate the picture from landscape to portrait orientation and vice versa as well as automatically crop a needed part of the image by specifying the cropping area color and its tolerance.
