    Convert .mrw to .jpg

    I need to convert some 200 mrw files (these are minoltas raw format image files ) to jpg to allow aur office staff to use them. Does anyone know of a converter that will allow me to do this as a batch job. I can convert them in photoshop but they require manual intervention.

    Have you ried Irfan View? www.irfanview.com It does pretty much everything. Some camera makers like to hang onto their proprietaty codecs though.

    I have a Konica Minolta Dynax 5D that can take RAW images in the .mrw format - ICBW, but I think that manual intervention will always be needed. Because no processing has been applied to the image data, I think you have to give it some input in order to interpret the data into a usable picture.

    Do you have the Dimage Master Lite software from the camera? I guess this may be able to batch process RAW files to jpgs.

    Why do they need manual intervention? Surely you can setup a macro to deal with them without any intervention?

    Pfft.

    Code:
    for file in *.mrw; do mrw2jpg "$file" "$file".jpg; done
