Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video NEF (RAW) processing, part of Nikon D5100 Essential Training.
If you shoot RAW and you are working in the field, you may occasionally find…that you need to produce a JPEG image from one of your RAWs.…Now obviously one workaround for this is to simply shoot RAW plus JPEG, but that…eats up a lot of storage and slows your camera down.…Another option is to have the camera produce a JPEG for you.…If you have it do a RAW conversion, that spits out a JPEG image, and I've got…that option right here.…In the Retouch menu there is NEF (RAW) to remind me that NEF is a RAW…format, NEF processing.…If I open that up, I can choose a RAW file that's currently sitting on my card,…and when I do that, I get this big menu of RAW-conversion options.…
I can choose a level of JPEG compression, an image size, I can choose the white…balance setting that I want, exposure compensation.…I can apply a picture control, configure High ISO Noise Reduction and Active D-Lighting.…I can get all of that configured and then have it save me out a JPEG file.…So if I am needing to email a JPEG to someone or maybe I am working in the field…
