    Hello,

    Does anyone know how I can start a batch conversion from RAW to JPG in
    Photoshop CS? I tried many thinks, but I always get a screen outsite
    Photoshop (RAW-converter) where I have te answer something, this I can't get
    in the action in Photoshop. I use Minolta RAW.
    Thanks
    Ivo

  2. In CS, when you choose automate from the file browser you can tick a box
    called "suppress file open options dialogs"
    If you select that you'll probably get what you want...

    Does the camera not do that itself? If so why not use it? Most people
    who shoot raw are looking for somethig beyond "batch processing" AFAIK

  4. You may want to try using ImageMagick instead:

    http://www.imagemagick.org/

    It is a set of image manipulation tools. It can convert all major
    graphic file formats (over 80 or so). It's easy to script, and a time
    saver compared to Photoshop batching.

    You are correct that those who shoot RAW want more. However, to be
    able to batch process to another format give the user an easy way to
    look through all the pictures to pick the ones to manually process and
    which ones not to bother with. When running through a few hundred
    pictures, it's much faster to process only those worth it than to go
    through the whole bunch one at a time.

  8. Let's say I have a studio shoot and take 100 shots RAW all under same
    lighting conditions. Then I will fix one for tonal and temp stuff and batch
    process the rest.
