"View NX2 'Save As' Bug makes it unusable for jpgs."

When any minor edit is made to a jpg using View NX2 then Saved As the resultant file is a lot smaller than the original.
There is no choice to select file size/quality.

Does anyone have a work around?

I shoot RAW now, but have many images in jpg only as my old PC was struggling for space. The i7 Core processors in the new PC are not compatible with Capture NX.

I would just buy the upgrade to Capture NX2, it is so much more powerful than trying to use either View NX2 or Capture NX.

From Nikon:

"Thank you for your response.

Yes the latest version of Capture NX is 2.2.6 and was recently released but unfortunately this update does not include compatibility for users of i7 Core processors. Again, apologies for any inconvenience caused by this."

Also:

"Yes, when saving an altered file in View NX2 the resulting file size will appear to be smaller than the original. Unfortunately there is currently no option to adjust this, but Nikon Japan are aware of customers concerns with regards this usage.

With regards to Capture NX2, i'm sorry but unfortunately at this stage there have been no announcements as to an update release date."

Capture NX2 is £176 ($275) in the UK and doesn't work with my set up and no intended fix.

Curious: what do they mean "not compatible".

At least on my OS X running on an i7 processor CNX 2.2.6 runs very well.

Capture NX2 is available from reputable UK retailers for around £130, or an upgrade (for registered Capture NX users) can be purchased for around £80.

I'm not sure what the incompatibility might be between Capture NX2 and Core i7 processors?

Thanks for that input. I am still running a Core Duo E6700 with 8 GB of RAM and Win 7 64 bit with no problems with CNX2 2.2.6. I am sure this will all be resolved in future updates, but this is the first I have heard of anyone not being able to run CNX2 with an I7 chip.

i think this just means that nx2 can't take advantage of multiple cores or extended memory. i have a 980x i7 processor with 12gigs....nx2 runs in one core and has the same memory problems that it always had on my core duo system...but, because my system is overall faster and win 7 64bit is so much better, nx2 runs MUCH more efficiently than previously (but, as i said, it still has that very annoying 'out of memory' issue, despite 12 gigs, etc)...

I agree with you. You can have it run in its own space and get maximum use of the 32 bit product, but Capture NX series needs 64 bit support and it needs it now.

I am unsure of what you mean.
The NX2 edit menu allows up or downsizing of file size and resolution using interpolation.
After pressing "save as" the jpeg quality option comes up.

Photography is a bit like archery. A technically better camera, lens or arrow may not hit the target as often as it could if the photographer or archer does not practice enough.

Hi Len
Think you are looking at Capture NX2 rather than View NX2?
