I was thinking about how large the D800 raw files are - unfortunatley Nikon does not offer a "small raw" shooting option - and how to handle them when less resolution is needed and you don't want to burden your computer/program by having to manipulate all those megapixels.

So at first I thought - after reading in a file, you could change the image size in NX2. But that won't help as it is just recorded as an editing step and the file is still large.

Then I thought after some possible initial processing you could save the reduced image as a TIF file. But I did a little experiment. I read in a raw image from my D200 and immediately saved it as a TIF file. The latter was 4X in file size. Apparently TIF's are much larger than NEF's.

So what's the solution if you have large files but don't need that size for a particular photo or set of photos? Of course I would only consider JPEG as the final step, which doesn't help.
