File Juicer is a drag-and-drop can opener and data archaeologist. Its specialty is to find and extract images, video, audio or text from files which are hard to open in other ways.

It finds and extracts: JPEG, JP2, PNG, GIF, PDF, BMP, WMF, EMF, PICT, TIFF, Flash, ZIP, HTML, WAV, AVI, MOV, MP4, MPG, MP3, AIFF, AU, WMV, or text from files which contain data in those formats.

Lossless extraction... File Juicer does't convert the images/sounds/videos it finds, but saves them unchanged in their original format if possible. See the manual for details.

This is useful:

Still my go-to application for reclaiming PDF content. Just save my butt again when master PSD and content were lost in a crash and had to claim stuff from a PDF product to rebuild by graphics templates.

Oh, and as too common around here, none of the "Similar Software" above really do anything comparable to FJ.

Hey guys, I have a request. I am running a G5 2.57 and there was another program who I sent MacWrite MacPaint, and some pre OS X sound byte files to, to try to convert them enough to be able to take them into Word, an Audio or a Paint program to complete the process. I tried it once with the people who made AppTamer but they were so stingy they never admitted that the program could do it because they would have to give me some credit for the help and they could not even let me have a serial number for my help and then they just pulled the converter to spite me.

Since then there has not been another converter that did the conversions I just described. Is there any way you could strike lightening in a bottle again. Anything I have I will be glad to send you to help in this effort. I know that there are still a great deal of people out there that have archived these files hoping that someone could come up with such a converter.

Just contact me if you would like me to help. This does not apply to those who came into the Mac OS X Universe and no nothing about the programs that existed in pre OS X. Thank you End of line.

BTW I still see people giving me negative marks for my comments. You people are really sick when I write anything and you just automatically give them. All I can say to those is when was the last time you ever had printed articles on a monthly basis for 25 year and never missed a month. I wrote for and was Contributing Editor for my User Group, Home and School Mac, Reviewer and Contributing Editor Inside MacGames, wrote for MacHome, About This Particle Mac, was a Forum Leader at AOL every Friday night to help with the MacGame Forum and did two Special Interest Groups in games and utilities that placed me on the A list with 90% percent of the companies I worked with. I even was invited to go on TV during the Holidays to show what was out for the Mac with a PC guy that I blew away when we took live questions. That still does not cover all the milestones I achieved in 25 years. So damn your insulting negative point. I had one hell of a joy ride and I still have all my User Group mags that have every one of my articles in it. So unless you can match the fun I had you all are all very sorry people.

I apologize to MacUpDate for my writings, but I am just fed up of these people who act like where the sun does not shine. All I am tring to do is be honest and try to help people about software I know so very well. End of Line...

Hey Afcgbbob, don't worry about the negative comments. Ever since MU positioned the sad face before the happy face icon it is so easy to hit the left emoticon first – I suspect that some people mean to send a smile, but inadvertently send a scowl. Anyway, it doesn't impact your RealLife™, so ignore. Here's a smile for you :)

Singing Praises for this app. I had lost a year's worth of photographs and memories, movies of my children's swimming lessons and events at school. How it happened was my ipod was backing up, then did a software update at the same time. All of the files were saved as cache files, but I had no access to them, could not import them into iphoto because they were in an unrecognized format, and so on! Two weeks on the phone with the apple care people, when the support person took pity on me and muttered something about a third party app and hinted where I could find it.

FILE JUICER solved the problem. I opened all the cache files and I recovered EVERYTHING. It was all there, but my mac wouldn't let me at them. Strange, but it seems I am not the only person who has had the same problem. File Juicer is a problem solver. Also, I am most grateful to have the precious memories back.

Great app. But I wish the developer would add the following file types to the list of those that File Juicer can find and extract: Matroska (.mkv), .m2ts, .mts, FLAC, APE, ALAC, WAV (grudgingly), .m4p, .m4a, .m4v, .vob and .mpeg.

Otherwise, this is a lovely little utility.

I don't believe those file types are embedded inside other file types on a regular basis, like JPEG files are in PowerPoint or PDF files. Perhaps you are looking for a video conversion utility?
Finder is good at searching for files with a certain extension if this is what you need.

This application is outstanding. Solid performance, reliable, quick - a great deal for the price.
I have this app running all the time, use it daily. I get a lot of stuff extracted quick-like and keep moving with production. Saves me a lot of time.
Excellent.

Too bad that this app does not support the extraction of CCITT Group 4 compressed images from PDF files.

(CCITT T.6 aka Group 4 compression is a very space efficient lossless compression algorithm which was originally developed for facsimile transmission of black-and-white images over telephone lines and data networks. It is optimized for documents with black letters on white background, where it typically yields output files which are multiple orders of magnitude smaller than the results of any other image compression algorithm. So CCITT Group 4 is still the best choice when storing scanned bi-level images in a TIFF or PDF file.)

I tried this on a PDF file I received, however, something didn't work correctly because I received a bunch of question marks instead of the text I was trying to extract. The file I used has confidential info so I am not at liberty to send it for problem analysis. This is the end of the trial for me. I do not expect a reply as I don't see how the problem can be addressed w/o being able to look at the specific PDF file. I just wanted to mention this and thank the developer for having a trial version so I could find out without having to pay and then ask for a refund. Thank you!!!

Emails are welcome - and answer email every day. If the PDF returns only question marks, it may because it is a scanned PDF which does not contain text, but photos of text. You need an optical character recognition application to handle that. I explain that in detail on my web site so you may have a different problem.

Kind regards,
Henrik - Developer of File Juicer

Extracting text from PDF is a science in and of itself… even if it's really text and not image data, as the dev said, you might still get garbage out…

I can't tell you how many times this app has saved my hide! It is perfect: simple to use, fast, and gives me exactly what I want. It has helped me with old files that no longer have a program but from which I need the text or graphics.

I highly recommend File Juicer!

This is not a new version. It has the exact size and creation date as the previous release of it 4 or 5 months ago.

That is NOT what I see. Version 4.27 that I just downloaded from the official website has a different size than version 4.27 that I downloaded in April 2011.

July 2011 Version -- 2,615,889 bytes
April 2011 Version - 2,588,784 bytes)

I wish the developer used a NEW version number.

It is too confusing.

I can see you are measuring the size of the DMG which can be different for a number of reasons unrelated to File Juicer itself.

If you mount the DMG I suspect you will find, as I did, that File Juicer's size is exactly the same - 9,520,292 bytes (10.3 MB on disk) - on both the previous release and this "new" posting to MacUpdate.

I have not released a new version, but verified that this version works on Lion and checked the appropriate checkbox on my listing. The size of the disk image is changed as it is made on Lion.

For details see the "read me".
