Question about Nikon D Cameras
Posted by Anonymous on
I use GIMP 2, a free open source editor that is very sophisticated.
I think I had to install an add-on so that it would read NEF files. Gimp converts all files that are edited in it to its own "xtg" file extensions. After I finish editing, I save the picture in the "xtg" file extension then I import it in "jpg" format to the same folder where the original NEF along with the XTG formats are stored. During the editing process, I usually scale the image if I plan to send it somewhere on the web.
I think a lot of other editors have a similar function, especially if the proper codecs are installed.
In addition, in the past I have used conversion programs to do the same thing but it's been a long time. Do a web search for NEF converters and you may come up with a free program or two that will allow you to make the conversion without editing the picture.

alexroska, Shooting tethered to a PC for instant viewing/downloading? I'll have to try that, it's not the card, probably just a glitch from being tied to the PC - and yes you can reset and start from scratch again from the menu settings. try that first before the firmware which is a last resort. randy320sgi

Please porvide us with more details whether you can copy the RAW files to your PC or not. If you can copy the files to the PC, you can easily convert them to jpeg format using Google Picasa, a free photo editing software which you can download from : http://picasa.google.com/
Hope this solves your problem. Thanks
