    RAW viewer?

    OK, so I messed up, and took my pictures in RAW, and not RAW+jpg. I do it the second way just so I can see my pictures. I don't feel like opening each and every picture just to see if I like it. I use Gwenview to see my pictures. Any idea on what I can do to see my pictures? Is there is a linux program that will view NEF files?

    If linux is your only operating system, then I don't know. Possibly GIMP. You would have to research that.

    If you have Windows or MAC, you can get ViewNX as a free download from Nikon. Just go to their software downloads. It will allow you to convert the files to jpg or tiff. Nikon Site

    Thanks. I will have DH put it on the computer for me. I didn't realize we have something called RawStudio. Have you ever used it? I was able to look at all the pictures, and it made them into .nef.jpg files, so I can see all the pictures at a glance. It also allowed me to edit them, but they look at awful. Not sure if it is just I don't know what I am doing, but the pictures are very noisy.

    For Vista you can just download a codec which lets you view your RAW files in windows, no other programs needed. Duno about XP tho.

    With Vista, the download is from Nikon, and it works transparently in a lot of places. With XP, the download is from Microsoft, was for a set of RAW types, and only works in certain areas (that's if I remember correctly). The Vista version is VERY COOL.

    Googles Picasa displays the D80 raw files just fine. It's free, nothing to lose by giving it a shot.
