"Saving Different Raw Versions in NX2"
Fri 27-Jul-12 12:59 AM by ornate_wrasse

Portland, US
          

I have been using Capture NX for a long time but have a question on a situation that hasn't come up before.

Typically, my workflow edits the NEF file and, after all the changes (like white balance, saturation, exposure and sharpening) are made, I save the image as a JPG and use the saved JPG for posting to forums or emailing to friends or, in this case, sharing with a class I took. In other words, I almost never save the file as a version of an NEF file.

The instructor and class loved the JPG image that I brought to class on a thumb drive, heaping tons of praise on the image.

Now it's a week later and I want to have the image blown up to a large size (16x20 or 11x14). The printer I use (I don't print my own images) wants either a NEF or TIFF file and definitely not a low res JPG file. Since I only saved the post processed image as a low resolution JPG, I'm stuck having to again edit the NEF file and save it. I can't remember each and every change I made to the NEF file and I don't think the edit steps were saved in NX2 when I made the JPG.

I'm wondering how other folks save their NEF images when making changes in NX2 that they would usually just save as a JPG.

It seems that I should know how to do this, but in my workflow, this situation just hasn't come up before, so that's why I'm asking others how they do this.

I hope I've made myself clear.

In any event, thanks for your help.
