Fast photo (batch) processing
Posted on 2008-06-23
I'm owning a Pentax K10D DSLR camera, which records JPEG and/or RAW files. RAW files might be Pentax format or Adobe DNG.
The RAW files are quite large and the post-shoot-process is as follows:
- Transfer files from SD-Card to Notebook (very slow process, takes several minutes...)
- View photos and delete some of the files
Now I'm looking for some more, easy + fast functions:
- Mass-Convert DNG to JPEG format (to place pictures to Google, send them out to friends etc.) => this might be done with IrfanView
- Dedicated photo editing (here Adobe Photoshop seems to be the 'only' and expensive choice - are there any better/cheaper???)
My focus is on FAST processing!
