Converseen - The image tool, that was missing! ( updated on 02/21/2015 )



Converseen - The Image Tool!

In this article, we are going overview Converseen. A multifaceted image tool,
 that brings to the Linux a easy, and fastest way to convert, resize, compress... and so on.


I found this tool just a few time ago, when i had about 50 images to resize in a single measure, and I was not willing to do it, one by one. I'm glad to have found it, because I did the job super fast, and in a very simple way.


What is it...
Converseen is a lightweight, stable and effective tool that will allows you to resize and convert professionally an unlimited number of pictures, all at once. This tool has a simple interface, but user friendly and comprehensible, that guides you to through every feature or function, without strange options.

Final Notes
The experience that i have with Converseen leads me to say that, its a powerful tool to use on your system, and will give you extra time to fulfill the job that matters, instead to wasted on minor jobs. 
It's the app to have into account, if you manage large volumes of images, or use on a regular basis to configure the image that you want.
