"View NX problem"


Woodbridge, Suffolk, GB
          

I have the latest (I hope) version 2.1.2. I notice now that when I send an email from View NX, it attaches pictures to the email with numbers which always start from 001. So five attachments will be numbered 001 002 003 004 005. And when I send another email the attachments all re-start from 001. This makes it difficult and time-consuming to find the originals for addressees when they ask for copies.

It looks as if my preferences have changed for some reason, as this is only a recent development. The photo files which I have attached all started life with the numbers which my D700 gave them originally, and those numbers are used in all other cases. But not in emails. I want the email to use the original file number, for instant identification.

I assume that my preferences have changed for some reason. But having searched in View NX ansd also in Nikon Transfer, I cannot find anything which offers a solution.

Any advice appreciated.

I just installed Nikon View NX 2 version 2.12 and do not see the issue with MS Outlook 2003.

Have you changed the way "Transfer" within Nikon View NX 2 or Nikon Capture NX 2 names the files?

You can edit your options for renaming.

I must admit I had never until five minutes ago, used VNX2 for emailing. But, I
composed an email to myself using one of my alternate email accounts for the
addressee, and selected a jpeg, an NEF, and a Tiff from a recent collection,
emailed them as single attachments and multiple, and waited for the
results. When the email came in ten seconds later, I opened the attachments
with Preview (on the Mac) and each image kept it's name from within VNX2.
I also don't see any way to change this in VNX2. Strange....

Have a look in your Options, at File Naming, the setting there can affect the file name on conversion. Make sure it's set to 'Original Name'.

Thanks to all who replied. I have not succeeded in tracking down the cause of this problem. I have looked at my VNX2 preferences, and seen that they are already set for giving the original name. The original name (the number given by the D700?) is used by VNX2 in its display of the transferred files, but as soon as it is asked to send them as an email it switches to numbers beginning at 001. And any subsequent email sending photos also numbers them from 001.

Perhaps I should try Nikon for the answer. But does everyone using VNX2 for emails have the same problem, and if not, can you please tell me what your settings are?

Many thanks.

Eureka! I have found the answer. To send an email via NX2 you first select the pictures you want to send, then click on "Email".

You are then given two options. One is Send Index Print. Choosing that results in what I was trying to escape from i.e
the resultant atttachments in the email are numbered from 001, omitting the original file number.

Click on Option 2 - Send Multiple Photos. This attaches the files to the email with their original file numbers. Explained more fully at

Thanks to all for your interest.
