User Reviews

"Quite simply the best shareware value in the world of Macintosh. I have used GC for about fifteen years, and consider it indispensible; back when you actually snail-mailed checks to shareware authors, I sent Mr. Lemke $50 instead of the $35 he was asking. Yes, it's that good. It's updated regularly -- about once a month -- at no charge; a few years back Lemke asked for another $30 from us old-timers for his efforts in continually improving the product, and I was happy to contribute. Before you shell out seven hundred smackeroos for Photoshop, give Graphic Converter a try; chances are very good that it will do everything you need. "

Also, if you have an older Mac, be sure to check out the "Classic" applications page for more options.

Finally, take a look at ALEMIA if you think you know that name of an application, but aren't quite sure.

These are applications that are newer and of potential interest, but which I haven't yet selected for permanent inclusion. Have a look, and let me know if you think they deserve to be part of the permanent collection!
