Which saved version from NX2 does PM upload
« on: January 21, 2012, 12:28:07 PM »
So far I have been uploading to smugmug just fine for all my NX2 files. I have two questions:

1. Assume PM uploads NX2 files with all post processing edits, right?
2. If I start using saved versions in NX2, how do I tell PM which version to upload?

Thanks in advance.

The entire file is uploaded, containing all metadata it possesses.  PM knows nothing about NX2 version settings.

Kirk,

thanks for getting back.  understand PM does not know about NX2 versions.  So, does it always default to the last saved version during upload?

PM uploads the entire file so whatever it contains is what will arrive at the destination.  What that means for NX2 is likely that the last saved version will be what you would get if you downloaded the file from the server and opened it up in Capture NX2.

rythm,

Are you asking about uploading a JPG (generated from a NEF) or the whole NEF?

In case of uploading a generated JPG, PM would simply use the embedded JPG in the NEF to generate the JPG it will upload. This embedded JPG is the "current version" of the NEF (i.e., the one that will be shown when you open the NEF with NX2).

In case of uploading the whole NEF, as Kirk mentioned, PM doesn't do anything to the file content and uploads it whole, again leaving its state at "current version".

Hope this explains things a bit.

Cheers,
Hayo
