Hi Hobbo, you don't mention what software your using to process the images, but what your asking can be done fairly easily in PS, certainly versions 4 to 6.

Cheers

Hi, Chris, many thanks for your prompt reply.

I use PHOTOSHOP CS3 ....BRIDGE....in conjunction with ADOBE DNG CONVERTOR.

This converts my original SONY, PANASONIC AND FUJI RAW files into DNGS.....this is fine for myself because I process the best shots then save as PSDs for my archives or JPEGS for my forum postings.

What I need to do now is to BATCH convert a folder full of DNGS ( some processed) into JPEGS or TIFFS so that they can play from a CDRW ion an everyday CD player or can be processed in somewhere like JESSOPS.

This means that my neighbour can choose which wedding pics she wants to have processed and printed.

If yu or anyone can give me step by step instructions fr doing that in CS3 I would be grateful.

CHEERS!

Hi Hobbo,
I'm not sure how you'd go about it using CS3. I wouldn't be surprised to find that Adobe make it as difficult as possible.
I think however, that you'll be able to do it easily using FastStone.
I've never used it to convert RAW files but FastStone recognises Psds and DNGs, so using their batch converter, it should be straightforward.
I hope!

I still have CS3 on my computer. It's just a question of selecting all of your DNG files in Bridge, then clicking on 'Open in Camera Raw'. Then if you want you can click on 'select all' in ACR followed by 'save image', at which point you'll be able to specify the file type. They'll then convert and save.

Hi Hobbo, I've used CS4 and more recently 6, but hopefully if you go File then Scripts then Image Processor you can select your preferences and then click go !

Yep, that'll work. You can run it from Bridge too: Tools>Photoshop>Image Processor. Just select your files before clicking on that and it'll process all selected images.
