    "Solved a Nikon NEF format conversion to PShop Elem. 5"

    March 11, 2009  |   By rjcozzens

    Pros

    This product is easy to use, very fast and simple to batch process. Its resulting formats work with both Photoshop and Shutterfly. I can pull batches of 131Mb TIFF files from my archives and convert them to 3Mb JEPG files for other applications.

    Cons

    My Demo. Software worked as advertised, but I felt I needed a single A to Z document with an index to more simply find answers to little questions and problems. I learn better by reading than trial and error.

    Summary

    I was pleased to come across your photo file conversion software. I have 60,000 high quality 35mm slides shot over 45 years, on 6 different continents. I have a Nikon Coolscan 5000 and plan to digitize 6000 of my favorites at Nikon's highest quality settings. These will be archived in Raw Nikon NEF or TIFF, at roughly 131Mb file size each. I plan to do a "minimum touch" through Photoshop Elements 5 prior to sharing. This is where Image Converter Plus will play a very vital role! The joy of sharing these photos for the last 45 years totally escaped me. Now I have a very easy way. I plan to pull selected batches from my archives, batch convert them to the needed file size and format via my Image Converter Plus and share with my friends and family...in all ways I can imagine.

    Prior to settling on Image Converter Plus software, I pursued Laser Soft Imaging Silver Fast Studio Version 6.5 with the expectation of achieving Nikon's advertised Density Range of 4.8...slides have relatively narrow density latitude. After a Laser Soft demo and a letter to Nikon I found that 16 scan layers using Nikon's software was better than the limited 2 scan layers used by Laser Soft. Also the $500 price tag was out of the question.

    I have been using the Image Converter Plus software every evening for about a month now verifying that it will meet all my quality, speed and performance needs for every conceivable sharing project and concluded that it will be my indispensable "workhorse" for my future sharing projects.

    It is apparent to me from reading your material and looking at the lists of format compatibilities, you have done your research homework and very much deserve to be the Image Converter Leader. Your Software delivers everything you promise. As a retired researcher from HP, I love your open minded "research attitude" and your continued thirst to make your product better.

    In a couple of years, I plan to purchase a Nikon DSLR on the order of the Nikon D3X. The 24.5 MP compares to my Nikon Coolscan 5000, which scans an equivalent of 21.5 MP with all maximum settings. My guess is that your company will still be on top of the RAW file conversion business. I'm looking forward to a long productive relationship with you and your first-rate software.
