Quick Digital Imaging Tip 30/101: Got RAW and Need JPEG? Photoshop's Image Processor to the Rescue

This is tip #30 of 101 digital imaging tips I plan to post here over the next few months. Stay tuned.

Today's tip (actually tonight's tip as it's close to midnight): When you need JPEGs – fast – from your RAW files, use Photoshop's Image Processor.

In Bridge, select all the RAW files that you need converted to JPEGs - and/or TIFFs and PDFs . Then go to Tools > Photoshop > Image Processor.

In Image Processor, you choose the new file format and the size. You also have a choice of a few preference.. like Run Action.

Choose where you want the new files saved. You can save them in the same folder, but I choose to save them in a new folder.

Click OK, listen to your favorite iTunes songs or Pandora channel, and Photoshop does the rest!

How cool is that!

I first learned about Image Processor from Adobe's Russell Brown, who has a fantastic learning web site. You gotta love this guy.

Adobe's Julieanne Kost, who actually introduced me to Dr. Brown, has a cool learning web site, too.
