OH! And by the way, pleased with the D5200 so far but my health has rather curtailed my photography somewhat. Smile

I hope you feel well enough to get shooting soon, can't wait to see what you can achieve with all those millions of pixels in raw. If you have any problems with the raw conversion I'm sure a post here will get you a speedy response.

Quote:Have you tried View NX2?
I suggest any Nikon user should try this free software. It includes many basic adjustments including the ability to change several of the camera settings without losing file information.
If other software you use does not recognise the Nikon edits (a lot does not) you can save as a Tiff to avoid losing some file information when doing many basic edits.

I downloaded the DNG converter and being a thicko couldnt see how to import the raw files so went to View NX2 and found a way to convert - I will perservere with DNG but in the meantime use View NX2 it was not too bad maybe a little slower than what I am used to but thats life I guess. Thanks for all offers of help, very much appreciated - I doubt you have heard the last of me yetWink

Glad you have managed to convert. If you want to try the DNG converter again here are the steps that work for me.

Download files to Desktop. You can do this using Bridge or drag & drop to the desktop from your memory card when the autoplay window pops up and you select 'open using windows'
If you want to save the dng files in a different folder from the raw files, make suitably named folder on the desktop.
Open DNG Converter [ If as sometimes happens with me a window pops up saying 'no disk ' or something, just click continue.
In no1 panel select the folder you have the raw files in.
In panel no2 select 'save in same location' or 'New location' if you want to save in your new folder.
In panel no3 set the info you want your files to have.
In panel4 leave as it is.
Click 'Convert'
Exit when done.
Sounds easy, I hope it is.
Don't hesitate to come back. Sometimes it is the silly little things that trip you up. I know I have been there.
