Creating Retouched Copies

To create a retouched copy:

  1. Select an item in the retouch menu.

    Press 1 or 3 to highlight an item, 2 to select.

  2. Select a picture.

    Highlight a picture and press J. To view the highlighted picture full screen, press and hold the X button.


    In the case of images recorded at image quality settings of NEF + JPEG, only the NEF (RAW) image will be retouched. The camera may not be able to display or retouch images created with other devices.

  3. Select retouch options.

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

    Power off Delay

    The display will turn off and the operation will be cancelled if no actions are performed for a brief period. Any unsaved changes will be lost. To increase the time the display remains on, choose a longer menu display time using Custom Setting c3 (Power off delay) > Menus.

  4. Create a retouched copy.

    Press J to create a retouched copy. Retouched copies are indicated by a p icon.

Retouching the Current Image

Retouching Copies

Most options can be applied to copies created using other retouch options, although (with the exception of Trim movie) 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. Copies created from JPEG images are the same quality as the original, while cropped and resized copies created from NEF (RAW) and TIFF (RGB) images are saved in JPEG finem format.
