GraphicConverter is computer software that displays and edits raster graphics files. It also converts files between different formats. For example, one can convert a GIF file to a JPEG file.

The program has a long history of supporting the Apple Macintosh platform,[4] and at times it has been bundled with new Mac purchases.[5]

As of 2023, GraphicConverter can import about 200 file types and export 80.[6] Images can also be retouched, edited, and transformed using tools, effects and filters. The software supports most Adobe Photoshop plug-ins, including TWAIN.[7] The application features a batch processor, slideshow mode, image preview browser, and access to metadata comments (such as XMP, Exif, and IPTC).

GraphicConverter is available in more than a dozen languages[8] including:

Old versions that run on classic Mac OS are available for download and include a license key. These versions are no longer supported, however.[9]

The currently supported version runs on macOS, is available as shareware, and is maintained by LemkeSoft, a software company based in Germany.
