Retouching Copies
  • Most items can be applied to copies created using other retouch options, although multiple edits may result in reduced image quality or faded colors.

  • With the exception of [Trim movie], each item can be applied only once.

  • Some items may be unavailable depending on the items used to create the copy.

  • Items that cannot be applied to the current image are grayed out and unavailable.

Image Quality
  • Copies created from NEF (RAW) pictures are saved at an [Image quality] of [JPEG fine m].

  • Copies created from JPEG pictures are the same quality as the original.

  • In the case of dual-format pictures recorded to the same memory card at image-quality settings of NEF + JPEG, only the NEF (RAW) copy will be retouched.

Image Size

Except in the case of copies created with [NEF (RAW) processing], [Trim], and [Resize], copies are the same size as the original.
