I recently lost my original raw (CR2) files for a set of photos. They were imported and edited in lightroom 4.1. I still have the lightroom catalog but the photo previews are occompanied by the warning "The file name "#####.cr2" is offline or missing". I am aware they are missing, the only version of the photos I still have is the LR preview. I am wondering if anyone knows of a way to extract the image information in a lightroom preview and save it as a jpg. (Not including doing a screen capture of the preview).
If you don't mind the colors being off, then the Adobe solution John Beardy linked to above may suffice (no icc profile assigned means colors will usually be interpreted incorrectly).
If you want the colors to look right, then use PreviewExporter instead (proper icc profile assigned):
