Converting CR2 To JPG Help Please?

Sat Feb 23, 2008 5:44 pm

Hello  Smile !

Could someone please tell me where I can find a freeware program to convert CR2 images into JPG. I have taken hundreds of photos in CR2 format on my Canon 400D and could only find a program that allows me to change 5 at a time, which would take me forever.

Thanks in advance,

Your 400D should have came with the software to do it, "Digital Photo Professional" I think it's called, it came with my 400D.

I shoot in RAW + JPEG, and when I see a JPEG file that looks good enough to edit, I open the CR2 up into the RAW converter. It takes alot of CF card space, but it gives you a preview of what images look good and others that you could do without.

What program are you using? I ask because I am using CS3 and I had the same problem but I found the plug in for Adobe and I leave everything in Raw until I edit a photograph and then save it as a JPEG.

You can use Adobe's DNG converter which converts *.cr2 files into *.dng files. From there, you can open up the DNG in Photoshop without the need of the latest Camera Raw plug-in. Edit the photo as you'd like and then save it as a JPG.

I personally shoot RAW all of the time. It is an additional safety net in case I screw up my camera settings. I had to get the latest version of Camera Raw for CS3 when I bought my 40D as well.

What sense does it make to convert all images to jpg at the same time?
Imo shooting in RAW makes only sense if you adjust the settings of each picture individually...  Confused

That is exactly my thoughts if you are going to do that you might as well shoot in L JPEG and save the space. I am

Stefan,

Using DPP I frequently make the changes I want to a series of images, then batch convert them. I find this easier for my workflow, rather than doing it one image at a time.
