PicPal Platinum Edition
Revolutionizing Claim Photos
Windows XP, Vista 32/64b, Windows 7 32/64b
PicPal was created to assist claims adjusters and their clients in working easily with their claim pictures.
Some of the features of PicPal are:
1. Reduce the file size of all of the pictures located in a folder that you specify - all at one time. You can choose one of three popular picture sizes to reduce to. The re-sized pictures are then saved into a new folder inside of the same folder that the original pictures are located in. No changes are made to your original pictures.
2. You can choose to place all of the resized pictures into a separate "Zip" folder. You would want to do this if you were emailing multiple pictures to someone. Many times emails that contain multiple attachments such as pictures are never received by the recipient due to the email being flagged as a potential virus or other risk. So, in order to be certain that the recipient received your attachments it is always best to zip them all into one file. This is something that PicPal does for you automatically, all you have to do is to check the box adjacent to "Create Zip".
3. PicPal can automatically create a single PDF file that contains all of the pictures located in a folder that you specify. You can specify to list one, two or even three pictures per page in the PDF document. You can also specify to display the File Name of each picture underneath each picture. Naming your pictures will allow people reviewing your PDF file to quickly note or relay information back to you regarding a single picture.
4. PicPal can automatically rename all the pictures that you have located in a specified folder - all at one time. If you had 100 pictures located in a folder and the clients name was "John Smith", then you could merely type the name "John Smith" into PicPal and it would automatically rename all the pictures "John Smith" with a number after each name. For example, "John Smith1", "John smith2", etc.
5. Hidden Data, also known as "Exif Data" is attached to all digital pictures even though most people did not know that it existed. For the sake of space this data will be automatically removed from all processed pictures (Not your originals). This data usually consists of the date that the picture was taken, the type of camera which was used, etc.
