    Convert to JPG from DNG - having some issues


    I'm trying to convert a heap of DNG files to JPG. The main reason is that all I can get to view is the embedded thumbnail, never the actual image (I'm assuming that the original image in there *somewhere* as the file size is greatly larger than the image dimensions would likely allow for).

    I've tried a few apps but either there's settings that I'm not using to do what I want to do or they don't do what I want to do (or have a 50 file convert limit...).

    I would like to either, keep the DNG files but be able to view the original, non-thumbnail, image or convert the DNG and not end up with just the thumbnail.

    Does anyone have suggestions or how to solve either, or both, of these issues?

    (Windows 10 ver 1909 if it matters in this case)

    Alright so I managed to find a solution which was the download Adobe Bridge and export the images. It's going much slower than the previous software I have tried but everything so far is opening up the original image, not the thumbnail.

    I tried that Adobe Bridge CC yesterday but removed it.

    Anyway here's what works for me.

    Previews in Tablacus Explorer (portable) which is tricky to configure - plus it requires addons.

    Thumbnail preview is on the right. The image on the left is open in JpegView.

    Batch convert using JpegView (Portable):

    I cannot say how it performs with a huge number of high-res images though.
