Pixelated images
« on: July 12, 2017, 01:55:41 pm »
Hi,

I downloaded a trial version of Photo Mechanic 5. I'm on Windows 10. When I open images in photo mechanic to cull them they appear pixelated. Is it a case of changing some settings?

Thank you

What kind of images are you viewing?  What camera produced them?

They are DNG files, Nikon d750.

They are DNG files, Nikon d750.

If you converted them from NEFs and set the DNG Converter to embed low resolution previews then they'll appear as low resolution in PM.  PM does not (in general) render RAW files.

You can reconvert them and choose to embed a high resolution preview and they'll look great in PM and they'll be very fast to present on screen.
