Hey Everyone,

I have completed my proof images of 150 for a wedding I did and am wanting to convert the rest of the images by File/Automate/Batch all my RAW images into a new folder but, to convert them to JPEG.

I have made to actions for this but they do not work.

One, I recorded when the Raw file was open.
Two, I recorded me opening the Raw file.

My problem is, I have to sit and select "OK" for every RAW image and it does not save my image as a JPEG to the folder I slected in the Batch menu.

Does anyone have an Action they could share or give me instructions on how to:

One, not have to sit and select "OK" but, have the computer do all the work in the opening and conversion of RAW to JPEG images.

Two, have the computer/program save the images as JPEG to the folder I selected in the Batch menu.

I really do not want to sit and select ok for over 2,000+ images. I know there has to be a programable solution to this problem.

Thanks for your help.
Tony

I don't know about CS but CS2 has the "Bridge" that is the new file browser...

I just select the RAW images I want and then Click Tools-Photoshop-Image Processor = you will be given some options and then hit GO...

If you are trying to run an action and dont want to click after each file opens... remember to check the Supress open dialog box... and this will bypass that window...

Hope this helps...

As for where the file ends up... when you start the action you will be given an option as to where it goes... if you put the location in the action don't select anything... if not they pick the folder here...

Later

The Image Processor in CS2 is available for CS in its original form. It was developed by Russel Brown (works for Adobe) & is available on his site:

www.russellbrown.com/tips_tech.html

It is called: Dr. Brown's Image Processor 2.3

I have not used it since I upgraded to CS2, but I'm sure you will find it useful.
Note: There is a wealth of other information and tutorials on the site.

Tom

I usually do this one of two ways. One is out of the RAW converter in CS2. Essentially, you select the photos in bridge, and then load them in the RAW converter. You then click on select all and then do a Synchronize if you want to make all of the photos use the RAW settings of a typical image that you have already processed. Then you click the Save button and there get to select the target folder, naming sequence etc.

The other way, is to use software that knows about the imbedded JPG file that is in the RAW image, and just extract that. I use this for showing the shots of a wedding during the reception since is very fast. I use BreezeBrowser Pro for this purpose.

The problem with any of these automated processes, is often knowing which version of what product people are using. Are you using CS or CS2?

Cheers,
rfs

Just out of curiosity, why are you shooting 2000 images for a wedding? That seems like massive overkill. When I shoot a wedding, I generally shoot about 300 images over a 6 hour time frame (wedding and reception). I then deliver proofs for about 200.

Cheers,
rfs
