Save/Save As

All the contents (recipe) adjusted with the tool palette as well as the trimmed range information can be saved to a RAW image or to a separate RAW image.
The adjustments made with the tool palette and the dust erase processing can also be saved in a RAW image.

1. Select an image to save.
  • To save an image from the main window, select the image by clicking it.
  • To save an image from the edit window, perform procedures from step 2.

2. Select [Save] or [Save As] from the [File] menu.

3. If [Save As] is selected, the following window appears. Specify a file name and location to save the image, and then click [Save].

Add thumbnail to image and save

Create a new thumbnail image for the main window and save to each image.
The quality of images in the main window improves and images redraw themselves more quickly.

1. Select an image to save.
  • In the main window, select an image by clicking it.

2. Select [Add thumbnail to image and save] from the [File] menu.

3. The following window appears, and the image is being saved.

NOTE
  • You cannot select [Add thumbnail to image and save] from the edit window. Please save images in the main window.
  • The quality is improved for any JPEG or TIFF image. While the image quality improves regardless of the thumbnail size, selecting [Large thumbnail], with its larger display size, shows the improvement more clearly than [Medium thumbnail] and [Small thumbnail].
  • A large number of images may take some time to add.

Convert and save (Saving as a JPEG or TIFF Image)

To view, edit and print a RAW image with software other than Digital Photo Professional, convert to a more versatile JPEG or TIFF image and save. The image is saved as a separate image, so the RAW image remains unaffected.

1. Select the image to be converted.
  • To save an image from the main window, select the image by clicking it.
  • To save an image from the edit window, perform procedures from step 2.

2. Select [Convert and save] from the [File] menu.

3. The [Convert and save] window appears. Specify a file name, a location to save the image, and the image type, and then click [Save].

4. The RAW image is converted to a JPEG or TIFF image which is then saved as a new image in the specified save destination.
NOTE
  • By default, the image is converted and saved to a JPEG image with the highest image quality, without changing the image size. Change the settings according to your requirements.
  • For a list of [Convert and save] window functions, please refer to the Software Instruction Manual (included on the CD-ROM) that came with your camera.
  • You can reduce the noise characteristic of JPEG images which occurs when you convert and save an image as a JPEG. For further information, please refer to the Software Instruction Manual (included on the CD-ROM) that came with your camera.

Batch process

You can batch convert and save edited RAW images to highly versatile JPEG or TIFF images.
The images are saved as separate images, so the RAW images remain unaffected.

1. In the main window, select multiple images to be converted.

2. Click [Batch process] on the tool bar, or select [Batch process] from the [File] menu.

3. The [Batch settings] window appears. Specify the required settings, and then click the [Execute].

4. The following window appears, and the image is being saved.

NOTE
  • In the [Batch settings] window, you cannot perform [Save] or [Save As] to edited RAW images.
  • To convert all images and save, do not select an image in the main window. If you do not perform step 1 and perform step 2 with no image selected in the main window, all the images displayed in the main window will be converted and saved.
  • If you have selected [New file name] in [File name], [Sequence number] has to be set.
  • For a list of [Batch settings] window functions, please refer to the Software Instruction Manual (included on the CD-ROM) that came with your camera.
