Creating Retouched Copies

To create a retouched copy:

  1. Display retouch options.

    Highlight the desired item in the retouch menu and press 2.

  2. Select a picture.

    Highlight a picture and press J (to view the highlighted picture full frame, press and hold the X button).


    The camera may not be able to display or retouch images created with other devices. If the image was recorded at image quality settings of NEF (RAW) + JPEG (0 Image Quality), retouch options apply only to the RAW copy.

  3. Select retouch options.

    For more information, see the section for the selected item. To exit without creating a retouched copy, press G.

    Press J to create a retouched copy. Except in the photo information “image only” page (0 Photo Information), retouched copies are indicated by a Z icon.

Creating Retouched Copies During Playback

To create a retouched copy of the picture currently displayed in full-frame playback (0 Full-Frame Playback), press P, then highlight Retouch and press 2 and select a retouch option (Image overlay excluded).

Retouching Copies

Most options can be applied to copies created using other retouch options, although with the exceptions of Image overlay and Edit movie > Choose start/end point, each option can be applied only once (note that multiple edits may result in loss of detail). Options that cannot be applied to the current image are grayed out and unavailable.

Image Quality and Size

Except in the case of copies created with NEF (RAW) processing, Trim, and Resize, copies are the same size as the original. Resized or cropped copies created from JPEG images are the same quality as the original, while those created from NEF (RAW) images are saved in JPEG fine format.
