"The "new" View NX editing options OK?"


South Australia, AU
          

Hi Guys,
Doing a bit of practice in the field with the lens support system,
The images were due for the trash can so I "played" around with editing in View NX

This is a lot faster than opening each image in NX2,

Are there any disadvantages of editing in View NX?
Regards,
Gary

Fewer options and no use of control points, but for quick adjustments it's not too bad. I do think it is slower so save changes or convert to JPG than CNX. You can still go into CNX and do further edits and the ones you did in VNX will be there in the NEF.

The thing I like about doing edits in ViewNX is that you can do batches.

Just select all the photos that you want a particular adjustment done to, do the adjustment and then save.

Tks,
Good point about the batch, hadn't thought of doing that, would help a lot when a series of similar images from the same area a bit under, (a common error of mine, I used to get it right for slides but tend to over do it with digital)

Regards,
Gary

Tks Mick,
I was just concerned whether the edits were as good as NX2

Hi Gary,

I believe that the edits available in VNX use the same "engine" as CNX becuse, when you open the NEF file in CNX, all edits made in VNX are applied.

Sometimes, on images I have selected to do more extensive editing in CNX, I just click the version and select original and redo everything with the wider choice of tools. Other times I just add more complex CNX editing on top of VNX edits - it depends on the image and its end use...

Tks Clive,
I get the picture, (pun intended )

Where I noticed the need was if a family shoot, (birthday in the park), was shot a touch under, a "quick fix" in View NX appeared to be the obvious solution, usually a slight tweak with exposure is all I need

Glad to hear the edits in ViewNX are OK

I use NX2 for all my landscape and wildlife but will use ViewNX for the family relative requests
Regards,
Gary

I agrtee wth the comments posted - View Nx2 works fine and there is no reason not to use it where appropriate.

I shot a large conference recently under difficult lighting conditions. I was able to rate images, make quick edits, convert to appropriately sized JPEGs, and get tehm to the client within a few hours for publication.

If I subsequently need selective edits, I can remove the View NX2 edits as desired and create whatever non-destructive edits are desired in the RAW file with CNX2. For the conference above, I had several images that needed edits for use in a magazine, and used CNX2 as described.

Tks Eric,
looks like the "new" ViewNX is used a lot more than I thought

All we need now is Nikon to add a bit of cloning, collage, remove the glitches, and we will all be happy
Regards,
Gary

You cannot use it for editting jpgs though.
There is no 'Save As' choice and the resulting file is grossly reduced in size after the most minor adjustment.
Very, very frustrating.

Interesting!
Tks for the heads up, I only shoot raw but it is a good thing that I keep the original raw images

The "Save As" bug can be worked around via Convert as long as your edits are just in View NX2. Once you make any changes in Capture, you can no longer edit or convert in View.

Could you outline the steps of how work round the "Save As" bug please, Eric? I've tried and can't crack it.
Sorry if this is getting off the original topic.

My mistake.

If you edit a JPEG, it forces you to Save your edits - resulting in a smaller file size. You can convert a saved RAW file to JPEG or TIF, and you can save a RAW file for later use, but I have no workaround for saving an edited JPEG without a significant decrease in the file size.
