"Copying a Jpeg Back to SD Card????"


Los Angeles, US
          

Can it be done so as to activate Playback (review) and Retouch menus on the D7000?

I tried dragging and dropping previously uploaded images from my computer back to SD card.

ViewNX2 help menu says nothing about putting an image back into your computer. Copy doesn't work. Can't name destination other than the same folder. Paste doesn't work. And the Transfer utility works in one direction only ------ SD Card > Computer.

If the JPG has not been edited, you can probably get it to work via drag and drop; but the cameras are very picky otherwise. You will need to get the directory structure correct on the card.

Out of curiosity, why on earth do you want to do that? Have you tried formatting the card to make sure you have no duplicate images on the SD card? Duplicate file names would cause issues. I think that you should be able to copy the file from your reader to the SD card. You probably have to load it in the directory DCIM/100ND7000. (all Nikon DSLR's that I have seen use the same convention)I dont have a D7000 so that is something you can verify to see the path where the data is located on the SD card. On a windows system it is viewable by selecting Computer and the proper device. The JPEG is simply a computer file in the camera or in your computer. and aDSLR is simply a computer with optics.

I did navigate to the correct DCIM folder on the card. My reason for doing this was to apply (after the fact) ĹD-L lighting so as to compress the DR on an image taken last year. Of a red flower in sunlight. The red channel on the Histogram was completely blown out.

I'm trying to learn how to control HDR on images with high contrast. If I had known about AD-L when I took the shot, I would have set that up on the Shooting Menu before pressing the shutter.

I'll try shooting it again instead of trying to clean up an old file. I sure have a lot to learn about digital. But I'll get there.

Sounds like you would be better off getting a copy of Capture NX2 so that you can do the post processing you want.

AD-L must be activated in camera during capture. If it wasn't, then it cannot be activated after the fact. And AD-L is not the same as D-L (although the desired end result is similar).

If the sensel for the red channel (or any channel for that matter) truly reached saturation (blown out) there is nothing to recover. If it's only one channel, there is a way you can PP the image to produce false detail using information from the other channels. But a blown out channel is just that, blown out.

Such in-camera processing options are performed before a JPG is created. They can only be performed using the basic image data from the sensor. If you want to achieve similar effects, you must shoot RAW and use post-processing software to process the RAW files.

I'm learning. You just can't treat the D7000 and image files the way you would with a 1981 Atari or Commodore computer.

Now, where is my 5.25 inch floppy disk

Gary,
LOL!

You're obviously a "youngster". I cut my teeth on a computer in 1957, at which time a team of resident engineers were needed to keep it going. Literally they occupied an apartment-like space in a room adjacent to the computer room. It used 5-track paper tape as the main input-output medium (although it was later upgraded to use 8-track tape). The machine had an MTBF of about 20 MINUTES, and was located at a prestigious atomic research laboratory in UK. Oh yes, we programmed it using direct binary code. We didn't even have an assembler! Nevertheless, we achieved some pretty amazing things using it (a Ferranti "Mercury", at the U.K.A.E.A., A.E.R.E., Harwell.)

I have a LOT more "computing power" in my wristwatch than was available for plotting particle trajectories in magnetic fields, in those days!

Pete
PS. Old age is a helluva price to pay for the wisdom one is expected to accumulate on the way!

I didn't get my first computer (IBM PC) until 1982. They were fast becoming a necessity for writers.

In 1979, I took a 2-month language course over the summer at UCLA. Class was held in the Management School bldg. In the lobby, behind large glass walls stood a computer that was part of the Defense Department's Arpanet -- a millitary-academic forerunner of the World Wide Web. They had on display large metallic platters with coils at the periphery hanging in that window.

A placard described these as "ferrous memory disks". They were about 14 inches in diameter.
A decade later I attended some conference in that building. This time, a placard in the window declared that the world's first email message sent from that room to a computer at Stanford University nearly 400 miles to the north.

I was a journalist, and my PC saved me a lot of toil and agony. But, in a strange twist, it led to many more revisions. And these, in retrospect, were unnecessary. The ease of editing and re-editing made me, at least, too self-conscious about my wording. A great topic for Psychiatrists studying writers and the effect of computers on their work.
