"View NX2 "

I downloaded the View NX2. The instruction are vague. To be specific can I integrate the photos I have already in ViewNX (using MAC)into ViewNX2. Is that possible? Is so how? The help section of the software is not geared for the less savy software user. Thanks!

Rudy,

Both programs just look at your directory structure in order to let you display images residing there; this means that the images you viewed in ViewNX are exactly the same (already integrated) that you should see in ViewNX 2. You should not have any problems with ViewNX 2 if you just look at the directory tree in the "Folders" panel on the left side of the display and click on a folder that contains your images.

Having used ViewNX and now ViewNX2, I noted the following:
I had set (in the old Nikon Transfer) the default destination for my images as
~/Pictures/Nikon Transfer. ViewNX2 with Nikon Transfer 2 imbedded, wants
to put images into ~/Pictures/Nikon Transfer 2.
In the Finder, I navigated to ~/Pictures/Nikon Transfer and selected everything
in the folder, and dragged everything into the /Nikon Transfer 2 folder. Now, by
default, ViewNX2 defaults to that folder, and all my images are there. Otherwise
I suppose you could, in ViewNX2, navigate to the old folder and drag it up into the
"favorite folders" area, so you could find the images with a couple clicks. It seemed
simpler to me to put everything where ViewNX2 wanted to look for it.

I couldn't stomach being forced into a subdirectory named "Nikon Transfer" (which didn't agree with the directory naming scheme I had already set up. Fortunately, in relatively short order, I discovered that the Primary Destination directory tree can be edited (which I do each new year). Now ViewNX 2 looks in the same place that Bridge and some other viewers that I occasionally play with look to.

Like Rob, I have all pictures for new transfers going into my Pictures folder. Each download is a new folder with a location name, 2 digit folder number, and date naming convention. The folders with images are ultimately stored by location and year in my backup drives.

Well, of course you can set it up any which way you please; but the original poster did
sort of indicate that he was not a software expert, so I just tried to provide a simple solution.
I myself rather prefer Nikon Transfer 2 as a destination. Since I have an iphone and a point
and shoot as well as my D300, it's nice to tell at a glance where the images originated.
The images are further sorted (by Nikon Transfer2) by year, month and day shot anyway.

While there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell
us nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another
in which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see.

Hi Gary,

I certainly did not intend to suggest that your explanation wasn't exactly as it should have been; I was just remarking on the fact that several years ago i was aggravated because I didn't realize that the "Primary destination folder" field could be altered and I wanted the OP, and others, to be able to avoid my lack of insight. I should add (for the OP) that the Subfolder field can be edited to provide a great deal more file structure information such as additional subfolders, event names, and more.

Since I have your ear (hopefully), I've noticed in other posts that you seem to know a lot of "tips & tricks" to use with our Mac computers. Do you have a list of those you could share or do you know of a website that has such a list?

Regards,

I agree with Rob's suggestion. Many of us have iPhones and comments on integration of iPhones with DSLR workflow and editing techniques will be helpful.
