  • JPEG with Outline to transparent PNG files conversion

    Hey Everyone!

    It’s been a long time since I’ve posted but I’ve been handed what could be a HUGE project if I can’t find a solution to make this easier. I’ve got hundreds of JPEG files that have been outlined with a path and our web guys are moving to a new B2B platform that requires PNG files rather than JPEG files for our product images. Does anyone have a quick easy solution, maybe an app, that can convert a folder of pathed outlined JPEG files into transparent PNG files? I can painfully do this one file at a time in Photoshop but it will take WAY too long to do this.

    Before we go any further, I’m on an Intel-based iMac running macOS 12.4 Monterey.

    I’ve scoured the web for a Mac-based app for the conversion and so far, all I’ve downloaded will not save a transparent PNG from a pathed outlined JPEG. I guess I could write an Action and use the Batch tool to do this but that’s far from perfect in my experience, especially what I need to do here. Any thought, O Great and Wise COW?
