This seems simple but I can't see how to do it. This is the situation:

I have a folder with say 100 images in it. I can view these in the NX2 browser. Some (say 50) of them have a label (say pink) attached to them.

I want to run a batch process which takes just these 50 (labelled ones) and converts the nef to a jpeg (maybe does some other stuff as well but that isn't the point) and puts them in a new folder.

I can't seem to do this. The batch process will just take all the images in a source folder. At the moment then I am having to run the process on all the images then go into the destination folder and manually delete the ones without labels. That is a pain. There must be a better way.

The point of all this is this. I'm trying to organise my workflow. I have my raw images in one folder. I've been through them, given the ones I like a label, and now I want to transfer those to another folder as jpegs where I will do any final Photoshop adjustments and then burn them to disk. Surely NX2 must support being able to run a batch process on images selected by label?
