Thanks, ***** ***** this

  1. From the Finder, select your group of images and open them all with Preview, do this either by launching the image files directly or dragging and dropping them into the Preview Dock icon
  2. Once the images are opened in Preview, click within the preview pane on the left side and then Select All, either by hitting Command+A or by pulling down the edit menu and choosing that option – you must select all the images to convert
  3. Pull down the File menu and choose “Export Selected Images…”
  4. Optionally, create a new folder for the converted pictures to save to, otherwise simply select the destination for the files to save to
  5. Now select the desired image format to batch convert all the selected image files to You will want to select JPG
  6. Click “Choose” to save and begin the conversion process

A progress indicator bar will appear over the pictures letting you know things are progressing:

Once done, they are then converted for you

I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.

Else let me know please how you go
