Lightroom 3 - NEF + JPG question
Jan 5, 2011

I took a bunch of photos recently using the NEF raw + fine JPG format. When I use Windows 7 to open the folder they are in it shows both the raw file and the JPG file. However, after I imported those photos into Lightroom 3, only the raw file shows up in the thumbnail views that run along the bottom of the Lightroom 3 Library page. The Metadata sidebar shows that the image is a NEF with a jpg sidecar.

So, is the photo that I've selected to develop the NEF/raw file or the jpg file? If it's the NEF/raw file, how do I view the jpg file? I ask this because I want to be able to decide whether the jpg file is good enough or if I need to play with the raw image.

Thanks.
