[prMac.com] Palatine, Illinois - Cristallight Software today is pleased to announce WMF Converter Pro 3.2.1 for Mac OS X, an update to their Windows Metafile (WMF) image converter and viewer application. This professional level image tool allows users to render and convert single or multiple WMF (Windows Metafile) and EMF (Enhanced Metafile) images, preview them, change colors in vector-based WMF/EMF files, and save either all of them, or selected items as Mac native images in one of 10 file formats, including both vector and raster formats. The update includes an improved UI and EMF image conversion functionality.
A metafile is simply a file format capable of storing different types of data. It can be a graphics file that contains either a pixel or vector-based information. A pixel is a unit of measurement for graphics using a pattern of dots per square inch. The number of pixels in an image remains the same whether the image is enlarged or shrunken, so that in order to get a better image, the pixel density must be increased. Vector graphics eschew discrete pixels for mathematical descriptions of shapes, which makes this graphics format resolution independent. Vector graphics can be easily re-sized without loss of detail. These graphic are preferred in high-resolution images because of their flexibility and performance in maintaining a visibly sound picture.

In Windows, many graphics and forms are stored and exchanged as Windows Metafiles, or Enhanced Metafiles (WMF or EMF). In Mac OS X these same graphics and forms are saved as PDFs. Mac users cannot preview WMF or EMF files unless they are opened in a Microsoft application, such as Word or PowerPoint. WMF Converter Pro solves this problem by providing an easy and effortless software conversion, eliminating frustrating and time-consuming conversion issues.
The product interface is easy and intuitive, allowing users to accomplish WMF/EMF file conversions in just a few simple steps. To convert a WMF or EMF on a Mac, users choose one of the export formats and select the Convert option or press the Convert button. The export resolution can be changed under Mac WMF Converter export options. Users may also set the default destination format, and the default location for the converted files. Converting many documents at a time can also be accomplished with batch conversion. To batch convert images, users simply click the Save All button.
To choose the specific file or files a user wishes to convert, users may navigate through WMF and EMF images using navigation keys and keyboard shortcuts. Users may view WMFs and EMFs at different zoom magnifications, convert Mac WMF files to vector formats, or to the most common raster formats with different resolutions, batch convert images or folders with WMF/EMF files, replace colors in vector based WMFs, and more. WMF Converter Pro features advanced exporting options to export images to PDF, EPS, BMP, JPEG, JPEG-2000, PNG, TIFF and other image formats, and export WMF and EMFs as Apple Icon Image Format files (ICNS). With multiple export buttons and WMF and EMF file processing, this software features customizable image preview sizes and an export folder hierarchy, facilitating easy exporting.
