macOS

Lemke Software has announced GraphicConverter 11.5.4, an update to its image editing utility for macOS. 

GraphicConverter converts any of over 200 graphic file formats to one of more than 90 other graphic formats. Version 11.5.4 brings several new and updated features, including a new Black and White adaptive threshold effect, red eye correction and removal, enlarge and paste, and more.

There are two versions of Parallels Toolbox: one for Mac and the other for Windows. The new Mac tool is CPU temperature. This tool tells you the temperature of each of the CPU cores on your Mac, and also lists the fan speeds cooling off these cores.
