I'm a newbie when it comes to Photo Mechanic, so please forgive my ignorance here...
I'm running PM version 220.127.116.11 on XP, and shoot RAW with a Nikon D300.
When I view my .NEF files in PM and try to save them I get the 'None of the selected files can be saved in high resolution' message that plenty of other people in the forum have had too.
Having read through previous posts on this topic, I'm slightly confused and hope you can clarify a few things for me:
1 - Within PM, is the only way to get a JPEG image from a .NEF file by extracting the embedded JPEG image from within the .NEF file?
2 - If so, is there any way of specifying the saved quality of this JPEG file within PM?
3 - If I can't do a .NEF > JPEG conversion within PM to get a high quality JPEG, is there any point in bringing the RAW files into the program at all, other than to view the RAW files more quickly than in Adobe Bridge for example?
It seems that with my current equipment I can only produce an extracted preview JPEG image from my RAW files, rather than a high quality version directly converted from the RAW file itself!
I hope there's some way around this because PM seems like such a great program and I don't want to have to revert back to the slow and clunky Adobe alternatives!
Any help is greatly appreciated!
