Raw Exporter

Raw Exporter utility batch exports image files stored in RAW format into jpeg file formats. It automates RawTherapee application in doing so - so actually it is capable of converting all file formats supported by RawTherapee which are following file formats: 3fr, arw, cr2, crf, crw, dcr, dng, fff, iiq, jpg, jpeg, kdc, mef, mos, mrw, nef, nrw, orf, pef, png, raf, raw, rw2, rwl, rwz, sr2, srf, srw, tif, tiff.

Main purpose of Raw Exporter application is to once set up application and then by click of one button automatically export all new image files. It is possible to set up storage limit so if exported files exceed that limit older ones are deleted. This feature is designed to support storage limited devices - e.g. export only new RAW files for review on a tablet.

  • Custom PP3 - if selected it is possible to select pp3 file that will be applied to all transformed files
  • List of RawTherapee presets - when Custom PP3 is not checked, it is possible to select built in RawTherapee preset that will be applied to all transformed files
  • JPEG Quality - JGEG quality of resulting file
  • Resize Mode - None or Long Edge, when Long Edge it is possible to set dimension of longer edge for shrinking image (image is not enlarged)
