Re: Converting RAW to JPG

Hi Jim,

My plan ​was​ to keep them in RAW format and convert for the reasons you list, although I am questioning that right now for this reason, I have a lot pictures on my computer and when I bring up my pictures folder they will not display a pictured thumbnail if in RAW.  Obviously if I get used to using Lightroom instead of going into "My Pictures" this will not be an issue.  Again, I just loaded LR today, so I'll have to get comfortable with it.

Also, from my researching cameras, it seems Nikon's in-camera jpeg's seem to be a bit lacking comparably, but their RAW files are quite good.  So even if I want jpeg's it would seem to me that shooting in RAW and converting ​may​ be best.
