It's been a while since I looked at Nikon View, now ViewNX 1.4.0 and today I thought I would compare versions of a file opened with ACR and one 'Converted' out of ViewNX. But when I first exported (or converted) a file and then opened the resulting tiff in Photoshop the file size had been changed from a D200 2592x3572 to only 1735x2592

This was without checking the 'Change Image Size' option in the Convert Image dialogue box selected and it read the correct original file size at the top. I did it several times with the same result.

However when I checked the 'Change Image Size' and left the dimensions the same ie: 2592x3572 the resulting tiff opened in PS and was as expected the correct size.

Unless there's a hidden preference 'Ignore My Original File Size Setting' somewhere I haven't noticed this sounds like a bug. Anyone else noticed this and does the recent update to ViewNX (which keeps failing to install on my system) fix it?
