Its very simple if you have bridge. 1. select all the images either by holding the shift key down and select the first one then scroll down while still holding the shift key and select the last one. 2. now open them all in camera raw. 3. In camera raw click on select all in the upper left hand corner and then at the bottom left select "save". 4. in the new dialog box you have some options of where to save them and if you look down in the middle you will have the option of file extentions, just select jpg and select the quality that you want and then hit save. thats all there is to it.
Using the export tool in Darktable (shown below), you can export a batch of RAW files to various formats, including TIFF, JPEG, and PNG. If 8-bit jpg is selected, a slider will show up that allows you to specify the quality of the output.

I use abode bridge to look at my images.
If they are in CR2 the camera came with software that can batch process them to jpgs.
one thing I might add. If you have a high number of images (300 in this instance) from a shoot, one thing that will save you a lot of time is to go through the images on your camera, or in bridge to delete any bad ones or ones you will not use before batching RAW files to .jpg. No one wants 300 images of one look (model or photographer), and they just take up hard drive space if you don't use them technically, or could come out to make you look bad later if it is work that you are not 110% behind.
but start the conversion workflow process with edits like this, and you'll significantly reduce work that you'll have to do with conversions/edits later. good luck
When shooting in raw you have more editing capability in photoshop.
Yes, I'm well aware of that. But here you are saying that you're taking all of your raw images (that give you more editing capability) and simply bulk processing them to jpeg files without editing. If you don't plan on editing your photos at all, it's easier to just shoot straight to jpeg in the future. Unless this is simply the proof album that you're uploading. Then this will make sense.
