Extracting jpegs

Is the jpeg that I extract in PM different from one obtained by saving a NEF as a jpeg in Nikon Capture NX?

Ian,

Most definitely.  The JPEG that gets extracted from a NEF is the JPEG that was inserted by the camera.  On the other hand, if you save your adjusted NEF in NX as a NEF, then NX puts a new JPEG inside the adjusted NEF.  If you extract that JPEG, then it is going to be very similar to the JPEG that NX would create.

I hope this is clear?
