In ViewNX, which JPG am I seeing?
4 months ago

I'm relatively new to Nikon DSLRs. I shoot in RAW+jpg. When viewing images in ViewNX, I know that all the images I can see are jpgs, even when I click on the NEF RAW image file.

My question is, are both the images I'm seeing when clicking either the NEF or jpg file the same image? Or is the embedded jpg in all NEF images different than if I'm shooting RAW+jpg, or just jpg, or just RAW?
