Them clever folks wot brought us the free and rather groovy pdf995 program for converting files to PDF format, have released another gem. Omniformat is a utility which will convert between 75 different file formats, including AVI, GIF, TIFF, MPEG and PhotoCD.
It also has a useful sounding OCR module which will convert any suitable image file to text. I haven’t had a chance to test it yet, but it goes onto my list of funky apps immediately. Like pdf995 it’s ad sponsored freeware, but it’s a small price to pay eh?
