    Hi guys.

    I'm looking for some advice on what would be the best (and least expensive) convertor for converting TIFF files to JPG, TIFF to PDF, etc.?

    I used to have Photoshop Elements 2.0 but that was a long time ago and I don't really want to spend $$$ on ver 11 just for converting image files.

    Just wondering if there's some good solutions out there that run great on OS 10.8.3 and don't cost a fortune.

    Thanks,

    Dave

    You could always use Preview, and what is the advantage of converting TIFF to PDF?

    use preview, and if you need to make a batch then use Automator (also comes pre-installed) where you pick Preview action of converting file formats.

    Thanks guys. I looked in preview last night but didn't see that.

    There's no "advantage" converting from TIFF to PDF. I was just looking for the most capability.

    Your help just saved me from spending $20.00 on Voila from SmithMicro.

    In case you mean "you still don't see it" it's in the Export menu. But I think you meant you hadn't seen it before.... :)

    Take the time to create some automator scripts if you are going to be doing multiple files.
