Batch Processing RAW files to JPEGS?



I've about 200 odd photos from a recent wedding I was at. People have requested a CD with all the images as JPEGS... I shoot in RAW.

Is there a quick way to convert all the RAWS to JPEGS without opening up each image individually on CS3 which would take an age.

Thanks for more help.

Re: Batch Processing RAW files to JPEGS?

You can do a batch process with an action in CS3.

Open the first image, then go the batch process - I think it is at the bottom of the edit menu, fill in the source and save details and do your conversion on the first image then PS will do the rest for you.

I'm not best placed to go into detail on this as I've only used this to convert 16 bit tiffs to 8 bit and re sizing, but I'm sure the same principles can be applied to a jpeg conversion.

You could also get a free download of Fastone viewer that will batch convert in one simple action.

Worth a look at

"Using Bridge is easy - highlight the number of thumbnails you want to process to jpeg then go to Tools > Photoshop > Image Processor. In the Image Processor window you will find all you need, it will automatically make a new folder for you and process your images to jpeg or Tiff etc. Bish Bash Bosh Job Done!!!!!!!!!!!"

Done.

Re: Batch Processing RAW files to JPEGS?

If you drag and drop a number of RAW files into CS2 then ACR runs in batch mode (I assume it is the same in CS3). I used to use this route but now I have a D300 so I have to use Capture NX (as I don't want to upgrade to CS3). NX will do a folder at a time
