Extract 'Preview' jpeg embeded in RAW without alteration.

Post by Katamara »

Hello.

I would like to offer a suggestion to extract/save the jpeg preview image embeded
inside RAW, DNG images without alteration.

As of 0.80, I have to use other tools..., it would be nice to use XnViewMP only.

Thank you.

I support this old suggestion.
It would be quite handy to be able to extract the jpg previews embedded in a raw file at least in batch mode.

Use case : I use xnviewMP for rating and culling raws. 5stars : the raw will be processed. 4 stars, the out of camera jpg is sufficient. I am using now exiv2 to do that. So if XnviewMP could extract jpg for the raw with 4stars (or whatever filter is applied) would be really useful.
I only need to extract the jpg with greater size, that is full size with my NEF files.

Yes, this would be a very desirable improvement. In my case CR2 (Canon) raw files are what is needed.
