Re: Minor quibble

I discovered this as well a couple of months ago. While I have no issues with storage space, I find it can be useful to save "web-ready" versions of my NEFs as an embedded version. NX will generate the embedded preview using the dimensions you set in whichever version of the file is active at save.

I take advantage of this by using Photo Mechanic as my browser. PM can extract the preview JPEGs, and if they are already web ready (resized and sharpened), I can save some time with not having to re-save JPEGs for email and the like.
