does the trick, takes too long
So it does the trick. However, my library is almost 7,000 photos and totals around 32gb. The problem is not all my photos are in RAW. many are already in JPEG. As it goes through and does its thing, the app does not seem to only filter out the RAW photos and process those. Instead, it processes EVERY picture selected. I selected my whole library, thinking it would only process RAW photos.Nope. Every JPEG I had was processed and the whole thing is taking many hours. It would have been much, much faster to find only the RAW photos and work on those. But I guess that would have been more code. Nice concept, but lazy-ish execution. Work on this, and you got a great app!
Just installed and tried on one photo. I think it may have worked, but app also crashed (at the end). Repeat, it seems to have worked as predicted. This is what happens. It creates a new event with today's date. I presume this latter effect is under the control of iPhoto. Raw files are handled differently than jpeg files by iPhoto. If you have some jpeg files, you should compare how they are handled before you become concerned with how RawHide handles them. I think this is a result that you may have to close your eyes on. However, I do wish I could have maintained my Event organization without any further work. If you want to follow a photo by the date/event, then you'll need move the photos afterwards, but RawHide is working. The good, keywords, descriptions, and dates retained, it gives you the choice to retain the unedited (no adjustments) or the edited version of your original, it will either just tag or tag and move to the trash the raw file. The bad, the location is scrambled. Also, a minor annoyance is that it adds their pill image with their 18 keywords. The keywords are for their other applications (which I don't have). I just deleted these keywords and it still works okay. If you had set the location for your photo, it will not be correct in the jpeg file. I'm not sure if this is an improper offset, or it loses the data. I have done a number of manual conversions. This application is somewhere in between a good application and manually exporting the jpegs from iPhoto and replacing the originals (I know, risky). If this is not a problem, then try it. It is like a beta application that works at the moment. I'd wait for the next version though.
Crashes when trying to process 2.6Mb JPEG
I don't have raw files, just JPEG ones. I don't want them to be 3-5Mb. RawHide should be able to drop them to 125-245Kb for me fairly easily. It crashes though when I try it.In "Original Treatment", I'm un-checking "Tag". I'm Checking "Trash". I'm guessing that means move the "original" to trash, before a making a new "original".I'm also checking "25%" for JPEG output settings.I've no idea what "Originals-With Adjustments" versus "Originals-No Adjustments" means. They are two check-boxes (not radio buttons).- Paul
