Know a good, free image converter?

Specifically to PNG. Bonus points if you know an open source one.

Assuming you use a PC, Irfanview would be perfect!
Find it here
Be sure to download the plug-ins too!

Another vote for Irfanview. It does batch conversions in case you have a lot of images.

The Gimp also works, and it’s scriptable for batch processing. Open source, available for Mac, Linux and Windows ( ).

Phatch is open source and I assume it can do image conversions.

Also, if you want command line imagemagick is all the rage, apparently.

GIMP can do image conversions.

@Vincentt Thanks for that tip, I did not know about Phatch. Looks good!

Personally, I am fond of XnView .
IrfanView isn’t actually bad, but I never liked it. I say try both and stick with the one you like better.
