Raw images taken with digital cameras contain raw sensor data. Such files can yield much better images than standard JPEGs but they must be “developed” using custom software, and this task takes time.
Raw files contain also an embedded jpeg image, already developed by the camera. This preview can be used to quickly show the image content, for example.

ERawP extracts the embedded previews from raw files and saves them in separate files. It can be useful if you need a reasonable approximation of the images and you do not want to spend time developing all the files. For example you might want to send the images to a friend by e-mail.

ERawP is available for Mac OS X, Linux and Windows. It does not require installation: just run the executable. It means that you can safely try it and it will not change your computer in any way, except for a couple of settings stored from session to session. For convenience the Windows version is also available as an installer, but it simply adds a menu entry to make its usage simpler.

This program is freeware: you can use it for free but the source code is not available.

No icon

As you will notice, the program at the moment does not have an icon. I am not a good icon designer and I do not have the time to make it. If any user wants to contribute an icon I will be glad to add it to the program and I will give credit for it.
