  • I used this utility a lot to add IPTC information to my images. See my Grandfather Roy's Family for an example of caption and copyright statement added as IPTC tags and displayed by TNG. I also use this program to batch resize images. Very highly recommend it! Ken Roy 14:40, 2 September 2008 (CDT)
  • +1 from PaulBarrett. I was having lots of issues with oversize images not generating thumbnails. Like Ken I used it for batch resizing. Easy to set up a batch process and phenomenally quick to process. 24 Jul 2017
