ConvertXtoDVD does exactly what its name says. This software is my current favorite for video conversion, it allows you to set the target size, speeds and compression for the targeted CD or DVD. I have used this software numerous times when making my own personal videos. I really like that you can add multiple files, add imagery, text and chapters. It helps you give your own videos a very professional look. It supports a lot of files, has the ability to add subs and allows you to adjust the videos settings if you need. It's not tethered to just conversion either, it will convert, it can burn files for your CD/DVD or USB, it can turn the files into ISOs and it can mass produce copies of the same file if you want. Overall I enjoy using this software, it does have a free trial but you will have to pick up a license to keep using it. It's kind of pricey but I think it was worth it. If you do your own presentation and hand out physical media, this is the kind of software you want as it will allow you to pump out CDs from the same file. This is my recommended go-to software for video conversion and burning. It's simple to drag and drop and burn feature makes it something very quick and easy to use.

Pros :

  • Converts a lot of file types to CD, DVD, USB or ISO files.
  • Add chapters, intros or subtitles to videos.
  • A bunch of settings to customize how your video will be compressed or in what format it will play.
  • Fast conversion and burning times.
  • Multicore optimized.
  • Hardware decoding.
  • Watermarking/Copyrighting.
  • Add customized Menus.

Cons :

  • The price of ConvertXToDVD is kind of steep.
  • The file sizes from conversion are pretty large, and may require a secondary storage device if you want to keep the files on your computer and don't delete them immediately after you're done converting.

    There are built-in Windows tools to manage graphics, but their capabilities are very limited. So if you like to take pictures with a digital camera or just work with graphics files, you should think of an alternative solution. FastStone Image Viewer could be the great alternative. Its main purpose is image viewer, but this program also can handle photos, including batch processing. Using this piece of software one can rename files, change the resolution of the picture, manage color correction, etc. In addition, FastStone Image Viewer supports RAW and displays metadata about the photo EXIF. With the help of this program, you can create slideshows, decorate it with various transition effects and add background music. The full-screen mode is very informative. You can just watch the photos or turn the cursor to the side of the screen and apply some effects, do the edits, explore the EXIF info or choose the other photo in the folder. I often use the batch process feature to convert files to another format. FastStone Image Viewer can quickly convert a JPEG, BMP, GIF, PNG, TIFF and JPEG2000 formats, including the files in the nested folders. Such image settings like color depth, resolution, orientation could be modified on the fly for the whole batch. It is also possible to add watermarks, frames and effects while converting, to set the destination folder. There is also the batch rename feature. FastStone Photo Resizer can rename the files by adding the counter at the end of the name, to find and replace characters in the file names. The selected conversion and renaming settings can be saved for future use.

    Pros :

    • Just works fine, speedy and easy to learn.
    • A lot of features for image manipulation.
    • Great hotkeys support.
    • Google Maps and Google Earth compatibility.
    • Free for personal use.

    Cons :

    • No auto update.
    • Some bugs relating Windows integration.

    FastStone Photo Resizer, which is also available as a portable tool for running on USB flash drives, allows you to select a large group of images from multiple folders, then convert them into a different format, rename them and even perform a host of batch image-processing functions, such as resizing, colour correcting or adding a watermark.
