I have dozens of pictures in RAW .NEF format from a Nikon camera that I want to convert to JPEG. I found this page with a Script-fu plugin that has a batch mode. I installed GIMP and UFRAW with:
brew cask install gimp brew install ufraw
Running the script in batch caused a hang of GIMP with this dialog box, where clicking the button causes the text in the dialog to go gray and
file-globappears in white.
I tried converting only one file and got this error:NEF to JPG Message Error while executing NEFtoJPG: Error: eval: unbound variable: file-ufraw-load
This is the line of Script-fu code that uses that variable:
(image (car ( file-ufraw-load RUN-NONINTERACTIVE infile infile) ))
So I assume that GIMP cannot connect to the UFRAW library. The page above has no solution about it.
How can I batch convert NEF files into JPEG, in GIMP or another program?
If you use Nikon’s own ViewNX-i [available for free from Nikon] it can
Link edited to hopefully now always find the latest version
a) batch convert to jpg [Export, set parameters, Convert]
& more importantly …
b) make a much better job of knowing what the camera’s settings were supposed to be than any 3rd party app.
