For whatever reason, I shoot in RAW on my DSLR. Maybe it’s because I feel that I want to have the best quality image possible in the event I want to print photos. Maybe it’s because personal storage is so cheap. In any case… I needed to find a way to convert RAW images to JPG images without losing their EXIF data. Cue XnConvert.
I found this great little utility on the App Store… it is highly rated and for good reason. What it does is simple and effective.
Within minutes of opening the app, I was able to test convert a single image - preserving the EXIF and date data. This is huge.
I need to preserve this data because I have a workflow that is based on the date data. If I use Preview or Automator, it doesn’t preserve the date data… it’ll give the new file a date from when it was created, just then.
XnConvert does exactly what I needed.
