1.2 (See all)

Allows you to turn a color image into grayscale and to change its size very easily. Black And White Photo Maker is a very light and easy-to-use software utility that can also be used as an image converter, as it allows you to export your images into several popular graphic formats. Moreover, you can select only a portion of your source image to work with.

The program provides you with several methods to load a source file – you can use its "Open" button, you can drag and drop an image file, or you can even work directly with an image copied to your clipboard. You have also a preview panel where you can see the changes applied to your original image at any moment, before you actually export it. Besides that, the program allows you to choose the output size from various profiles, some expressed in percentages and some as fixed square sizes. However, you can also specify a custom size (width and height separately).

Finally, when you are completely satisfied with the preview, you can proceed to export your image into any of the supported formats with just one click. These formats are JPG, BMP, GIF, RAS, JPC, ICO, TIF, PNG, PCX, and TGA. You just need to press the button that corresponds to your preferred format and provide a name and location for you file – then the job is done.
