Instant JPEG from RAW utility

Found this on The Online Photographer - looks quite useful to me.

I can't do better than quote from the story:

Quote:
"Our friend Michael Tapes (he of the WhiBal), along with his colleagues at Imagenomic, have created a neat new free utility called Instant JPEG from RAW (IJFR). IJFR is not an application; it's a utility that attaches itself to the Win or Mac OS. It also doesn't process or develop RAW files; it merely extracts the JPEG that's already in all your RAWs. Its functionality isn't unique, but for many people it will be handy.

"What does it mean for you? No more shooting "RAW + JPEG" with most cameras, for one thing—no need. No more waiting for your converter to create JPEGs from large directories of RAWs—it's actually instant unless you're also resizing for the web, in which case it's just very fast. And no more waiting for frame-by-frame rendering when you zoom in. And, really, no more reason to shoot JPEG at all—the JPEG is there in the RAW file anyway, so when you shoot RAW you already have both."
For more info see:

http://theonlinephotographer.com/the...log_index.html (entry for Sept 30 - includes video of the utility in use)
http://www.rawworkflow.com/blog/2008...-raw-ijfr.html

or download at (Zipped installer file - free, but registration needed)
http://www.rawworkflow.com/instant-j...m-raw-utility/

For quick proof quality images, I think this could be quite useful. The installed application extension is just 321K.

Re: Instant JPEG from RAW utility

Thank you for this. It works well and so quickly. On a Mac it is completely transparent and reversible so I had no concerns about installing.

It is so useful with all of the historic CDs I have with purely Orf backups.

The instant web-sized jpgs is also a bonus. I'd recommend this as a neat utility.
