Okay I have finally bit the bullet and dug into the NX2 software and figured out how it works. So here is my first 'official' RAW conversion. :D

I like it! I still want to figure out some sort of workflow I like and maybe incorporate LZ and GIMP into that. Looks like I will shoot RAW + Jpeg from now on.

First just the RAW straight into jpeg resized with GIMP no other alterations...

Then the RAW played with on NX2 then resized with GIMP...

Bitmap for testing purposes...looks like I am getting more detail out of the shadow areas with the map but losing it on the bright end..colors maybe not as rich either with the map...interesting. Nil effect on sharpness. Looks like it is falling somewhere between the two examples above. More study required.

Okay i think I have came up with a good quick RAW workflow for myself. NX2 to GIMP to Flickr. I will try to figure out how to incorporate LZ into it as an option now.

I think I would like to look into changing the board style so we can use big 1024 wide Flickr images...post preceding this one shows how this board style cuts them down to size...that is old tech...we need something new...and a new look.

Maybe updated version of PHP software will allow this???

Mike you have any ideas?
