"nx2-version2.9- why the reduction of reduced jpeg.mg"


Knoxville, US
          

I lost my motherboard due to an electrical storm which also took out the NX2 that I was useing for my photos.The question I have is what needs to be corrected because the jpeg mgs. are greatly reduced or compressed .I will use the previous raw and jpg. photo as a comparison-previous raw-13.9--jpeg-7.93.After the new installation of NX2 the jpeg for the same photo is now 1.8mg.I would appreciate your thoughts .
Thank You
Ron

I assume you are referring to View NX2 - not Capture NX2.

Most likely a setting has changed - either the quality or the dimensions of the resized image.

Take a look at your settings. For quality the largest image will be Highest Quality. The "Change Image Size" box should not be checked for a full size image.

If you wanted to resize for the web, you would check the Change Image Size box and set a dimension of 800-1000 pixels on the longest side. Then move the Quality slider to Good Compression or smaller. This should produce a file of around 100-150kb depending on the image.
