Extract images, video, sound, or text from files and folders.

Overview

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. In computer forensics this is called carving.

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:

  • If you want to extract the images/sounds/videos from a PDF or Word document
  • If you have old files you can no longer open with current applications
  • If you receive emails with attachments you can not open
  • If you have corrupt files or databases
  • If you have damaged or accidentally erased flash cards for your digital camera
  • If you receive "self extracting" EXE files designed for Windows
  • Or if this is just faster than copying and pasting from the file

What's new in File Juicer

Version 4.84:
Fixed:
  • Scanned black/white images in some PDF fiex would be cropped on Mojave on Retina equipped Macs
  • Extracts small thumbnail images from 7th generation iPod nano ithmb files named "F1005_1.ithmb"

I just posted a critical comment about an obvious error in the download system.. But let there be no doubt: I love this program! I purchased it in 2007, and it has served me in a great way ever since.

There is a heat wave covering Europe these days. Maybe that's why there is a mixup in downloads? The "Download" link here at MacUpdate redirects to https://echoone.com/filejuicer/ — where I clicked "Get File Juicer 4.78 | Jul 27 2019 | 3.6 MB" "Try". Then "1) Download Version 4.78 | Jul 27 2019 | 3.6 MB". Although the FileJuicer-4.78.zip contains File Juicer.app 4.78, it is exactly the same size as version 4.77, and both are created on 23 February 2019. "Something is rotten in the state of Denmark."?

Best program of its kind, ever‼️ Owned it for many, many years & have always appreciated how the developer keeps it current, polished and more useful as the years roll on. Wonderful app that I cannot be without. Not only does it do everything you'd want in a program like this, but it does it so well‼️ Like it's programmer, classy. ;-)

Sometimes you find things that are so simple and elegant yet solve problems that are tedious. File Juicer falls into that category. When you need to tear apart anything from a PDF to the "guts" of an HTML file this tool makes it very simple.

Easy! Wonderful! Effective! Now that you have read the satisfaction I have with this app I will write more. In only a few uses it has proven itself to be a wonderful short cut. Strip everything, delete the unwanted. Takes less time than my old techniques. Especially when I consider the times I would have liked to add something to me collection of resources but effort was not worth the possible expectation of use. Wonderful! Easy! Effective!

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...

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.

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!!!

This is much belated but I just have to give this app and its dev absolute full points. If you'll bear with me a minute I'll explain why. My dad died in early 2006 in another country. We went over for the funeral and took pictures with my wife's DSLR as a record. A couple of weeks after returning home our house was broken into and several bits of kit were knicked. The camera and the iBook the images were backed up on both went in the hit. They were replaceable, but the images were not. It was heartbreaking having to tell the rest of the family the images were lost. A couple of weeks later our local boys in blue did some above and beyond searching and matched a recently recovered camera with us. The flash card, alas, was blank. Fast forward a month. I vaguely recalled a mention of this utility on a Mac news site, so I thought I'd hunt it down and - just for a laugh - see if it could recover anything from the card. I pretty much broke down in tears when I saw it effortlessly recover pretty much all of the pics we'd taken off this erased flash card. Yes, I know that recovering data from media is not in this day rocket science, but it made a real, tangible difference to me and my family. I know I thanked you privately at the time, Henrik, but I thank you to this day for offering this app. To other readers out there, I'm sure (well, I simcerely HOPE) it will not have such a crucial role in your life, but if you're faced with having to recover flash cards or similar, do give this a try. Again, thank you Henrik. Please know that you made at least two generations of my family happy.

File Juicer is definitely a must-have utility if you do any work with graphics. Pulling a vector file from a PDF publication has repeatedly saved me the time and effort of finding the right person and the correct file in the graphics department of an organization. The application is drag-and-drop-dead-simple. The extracted files are classified/organized in folders. Intuitive is the word - won't need the manual unless you want to tap into even more powerful features (e.g., recovering files off erased flash cards, from damaged files and more). Updates and improvements are introduced on a pretty routine basis. Can't speak for the responsiveness of the developer because I've never had problems that required a response. Juicer truly earns its 5-star rating. Echo One also produces Double Take for making photo panoramas - another ease-of-use winner. If you've never tried making a pano, now's the time. And no, I have no relation to Echo One - just really appreciate apps that make my work a little easier.

I'm really please to have bought this app. I have used it more than I was expecting and for the cost of the time that it has saved me, it has already paid for itself. I like that I don't have to work out how to use this app. I just drop my file on the window and the jobs done. A folder appears on my desktop with all the found resources nicely organised in folders with index.html previews of all the images. File Juicer has enabled me to rework Word docs, PowerPoint Files and PowerPoint Shows full of images, PDFs and corrupted PDFs as well as Windows files that I was unable to open at all. I have been able to get to the data I needed with the minimum of fuss.

Quickly and painlessly extracted a couple dozen JPEGs that were embedded in a .doc file. Wonderful, because AFAIK there's no way to view such files without MS Office. I always wondered wanted a program like this. I'm very glad sometime took the time to make it, and do it well. The interface could certainly be slicker, but hey, it's easy to use and gets the job done, so I'm happy. No real complaints here.

I have used this from its inception. Wonderfully useful program. In fact, I find that I use it almost every day, and keep it on my desktop, which I reserve for only primo apps. I have had great email support with the developer when asking questions, etc., and would definitely recommend this app without reservation. ( You can't beat the price either ;-)

This is one of the few shareware apps I like enough to keep and purchase. It's a lifesaver, and extremely useful for extracting pictures from PowerPoint files. Even though I have PowerPoint, it's a royal pain and waste of time to copy and paste images out of it -- just run it through File Juicer and they're waiting for me on my desktop in seconds. It's fast, lean, efficient, and completely idiotproof. It's saved my butt on several occasions when I had to get information out of a file for which I didn't have a program to open it. Thank you!

"This used to be free, right? Well, too bad, but time to replace it with another free utility. By then, File Juicer." What kind of comment is that? Software development isn't easy, and $8 isn't much to pay for many hours worth of development work. Once you've made a smiliar product for free, then you have a right to complain.

I tried it with a pdf file but all my images extracted were quite black. Tried with an InDesign file, several images were all right but many distorted and with strange colors. I think it needs some work. Great idea though and would be useful if the image quality retained.
