Extracting embedded JPEGs

Top  Previous  Next

Use this option to extract the JPEG preview image embedded in Canon, Nikon, Fuji and Pentax raw files. This JPEG is 1440x960 pixels for EOS D30 raw files, 2048x1360 for EOS D60 raw files, variable size depending on custom function settings for EOS 10D and 20D raw files and 640x480 pixels for other camera models (e.g. G1, G2, Pro90, S30 and S40). You will be prompted for the output directory and whether to rotate images and include EXIF information.


Selecting the option to rotate images will rotate images so that they match the display in BreezeBrowser Pro. Only the images that need to be rotated will be rotated and the rotation is lossless. JPEG extraction is faster if you do not select this option but all the images will be extracted in landscape orientation.


Canon EOS 1D and 1Ds raw files: The "Extract Embedded JPEGs..." option can also be used to copy Canon EOS 1D and 1Ds viewing JPEGs to a different directory to make it easier to use them for quick proofing operations. Select the "Copy Canon EOS 1D/1Ds viewing JPEGs to output dir" checkbox if you wish to use this option. Please note: EOS 1D and 1Ds raw files do not contain embedded JPEGs and this operation only copies viewing JPEGs to another directory if they already exist i.e. if you shoot in Raw+JPEG mode or have previously created the viewing JPEGs.
