"How do I..................."


elizabeth, US
          

Happy Holidays to all. I have Viewnx and i have Capture2. How do I convert a NEF that I have adjusted into a JPG? As soon as I tweek
the NEF, Viewnx will not allow me to convert it into a JPG. I have
a D700 which allows me to tweek in-camera, but I'm working on pics
that i took with my D70 or D300. Any help appreciated.....phil

I have found that, once a NEF file has been edited in Nikon Capture NX 2, it can no longer be converted by View NX. I don't know why that is.

You should be able to save the image as a JPEG in Capture, after editing it.

You can either use "save as" for individual files, or you select multiple files and use the batch processing feature to convert a bunch of files at once.

Edited to add that the above statement is for NX2. I believe that Brian is correct and once you have modified a NEF with NX2 you can no longer convert it using View NX.

>or you select multiple files and use the batch processing

Hi and Happy New Year Tangential question: I don't see how this is possible. It seems batch processing is only available for all files in a specified folder and not for a collection of selected files via the browser. See what I mean?

Cheers,
Peter

If you select multiple files in the browser, you can do a batch conversion by doing "File->Save as". That will start a batch process to convert the selected files. Similarly, you can paste an adjustment by copying the desired adjustment and right mousing on one of the selected files and selecting paste. You can also apply a saved setting by right mousing and picking "Load adjustment...".

Is this what you are looking for?

Hi Danny. Thanks for the reply. Yes, I have used File->Save As and also pasting of adjustments. I am looking for a quick and easy "batch" way of running multiple steps on a set of NEF images selected in the NX2 browser. The steps would be something like: resize, convert to sRGB, sharpen for web posting, save as JPG. (I am currently looking into switching to working in Adobe RGB or the ProPhoto space). Cheers, Peter

My attempt at doing that would be to open an image and do the edit adjustements you are talking about. Then you could select all the steps and copy them or save them as a settings file. Then in the browser select the various images you want to apply those settings to. If you used copy on the selected edit steps, then just do a paste. If you saved the steps as a settings file, then load the settings file.
