If you have a "Recorded Value" white balance in one image that you would like to use for other images, how do you copy this to the other images?
If you copy the "Recorded Value" white balance and paste it to other images, you get the "Recorded Value" for the other images, not the white balance you would like to copy from the first image. If you do the same in Photoshop RAW converter, try to synchronize the "As Shot" white balance to other images, you get the "As Shot" white balance for the other images - just like NX2. In Photoshop you can change the "As Shot" white balance tag to "Custom" without changing the white balance values and then synchronize this to other images - I have not found a way to do this in NX2 without changing the actual white balance value in the first image. Does anyone have a way to accomplish this?
If I change the white balance in NX2 to "Set Gray Point" and make a small change (change the 1 to 1.01) for one on the two curves, then I can copy this new value to other images. This is almost the same white balance value, but not exactly the same. Does anyone have a better method?
I have copied the slightly adjusted "Recorded Value" using the method I described to an entire folder of images and batch processed them. The white balance appears to be modified to the correct value - each image was modified by a different amount since they had different "Recorded Values" from the camera.
I have tried this method using images where the "Recorded Value" was with the camera using both custom white balance and Auto. It does not appear to matter if the "Recorded Value" from the camera was due to using Auto, Custom, Preset, or K values.
Thanks Kraig. That is the one combination I had not tried, this appears to be the equivalent of changing the "As Shot" to "Custom" in Adobe Camera RAW which then allows you to paste or as Adobe says synchronize white balance in any other images.
I have seen this question ask several times on this forum and the response has always been that you can't do it in NX.

Actually I found that "changing" it to 1.0 would work too, but you had to really have "changed it" for the copy to work and not stick to "Recorded Value".
But the tip to use "Use Gray Point" is even better of course, and something I hadn't though of myself either
