JPEGCrops name

A new hope (for a new name)

Guido Vollbeding who makes JPEGCrop mentioned - very politely - that people could easily mistake our programs. I thought that I was very clever to name my program JPEGCrops in order to say that it was about cropping multiple images, but I do think he has a valid point. A new name for JPEGCrops would probably be a good idea.

I asked for suggestions a while back and I got a lot more replies than expected. So many in fact, that I had trouble deciding. I think it took me a year or so. The new name will be RoboCrop and it will be a complete rewrite of JPEGCrops. It will take a while and I won't make any major changes to JPEGCrops in the meantime. Serious bugs will be fixed though.

I'll leave the suggestions and the comments below. I appreciate the many suggestions. Thanks.

L-crop or L-crops (variations on Lcrop by Bernd Schandl) would sound best to me. Lots of programs crop, but few do it LOSSLESS.

More suggestions: Crop til you Drop, Crop it all, Auto Crop, Cropfest ( like a festival ), Complete Crop, No Loss Crop, One-stop Crop Shop

Anyways...good luck...old name, new name...this program is the greatest...(Ali Crop like Mohammed Ali - the greatest). Thanks again.

I really like the program. It is nearly exactly what I envisioned I would write if I knew the ins and outs of graphics programming. I like the name Crop2print because that is pretty much its mail purpose. Thanks.

This is what I'm looking for.
JPEGCrops is a fine, small tool.
Thank you !

I'm thinking about Crik Crak Crop! which sounds funny and is easy to remember. Or simply Croppez to sound l33t a bit ;)

Krop also maybe, it's proven that any name with a K in it is easier to remember.

What a nice program! Found it when surfing through the net on search of tools helping to improve my digitalized slides.
Looking for a new name? JPEGCrops says all, but CropJPEGs might be an alternative.

Hey, this is a great program. I wonder if CropMaster or MasterCrop would work for a new name. It is the master of crop software.

PrintCrop will be nice. Because of the loss-less nature of this program, the cropped pictures will be suitable to print. Plus printing is the main reason to use this program.

Jpegcrop does not 100% what i want.
It does it 200%!!!!! :-)

Searching so long for this tool...
Like it so much

Great Tool!
I use Breezebrowser to do most things I need, but batch-crop tool for "Crop2Print" is not included. The same for PSP 7.

I agree with Daan. The name should be Crop2print because thats what it does.

A new name: OK - my suggestion - The Crop Factory.

I'm surprised nobody suggested CropTastic yet - because that's what it is :o)

As VERY new user, I would suggest keeping JPEG in name since it doesn't do other formats and Crop2Print(,etc) suggests otherwise...maybe JPGcropper?

My suggestion= SerialCrops? (not cereal crops)
My vote on those so far = cropTastic
ps thanks for saving me writing a crop tool myself myself)

i have quest for your software , can you add it to .jpg file & folder shortcut menu(right click the .jpg file & folder),then when i want to crop my photos just right click the file , it will be more quickly.

I have just found JPEGCrops and am impressed.

I have bought a photo frame which automatically resizes the pictures to an odd aspect ratios so all pictures look strange.

Using JPEGCrops I can make a folder of pictures, bulk crop them to an aspect ratio of 16:9 showing just what I want to see, and then I bulk resize using Visualizer Photo Resize to a size of 720 x 540 (note the change in aspect ratio!), and now the photo frame shows them perfectly.

The photoframe has a native screen size of 480x234 pixels so what the heck goes on inside I don't know!

So many thanks for JPEGCrops, I can now load all the pictures and send them off to my Mother-in-Law so that she can see loads of pictures of her grand daughter.
