So I took 979 shots yesterday and would like to batch process the RAW files. Would like to include saturation, contrast levels adjustments with the final conversion to jpeg format. I know how to do this with NX2 but not with my Nikon D750 camera because NX2 does not support the RAW files from this camera. Any suggestions on how to perform this or program to use would be appreciated.

Daniel,

 

Do you have LR?  I believe Adobe CC supports D750 RAW files.  You can adjust a number of settings as an import preset and they are applied when you import the images.

This type of batch basework is as easy in NX-D as it was in NX2.

  1. Do your adjustments and press cmd+shift+c on a mac (probably ctrl+shift+c on a windows box). 
  2. Select the files you want to apply your copied adjustments to and press cmd+shift+v.
  3. Fine tune all files one by one as necessary.
  4. Select all files you want to export.
  5. Press cmd+e to start the export routine, adjust your export parameters and start the export.
  6. Done

LR 5.7 and later and PS CS6 and later if fully updated support the NEF files from the D750 if you have Adobe software available.

 

I am still learning NX-D, but I am impressed with how the program renders raw files from all the Nikon bodies I have experimented with. The UI isn't the mose intuitive I have used, but when you find everything it is reasonably quick to use.

Photoshop Elements also does batch processing of RAW files. I saw P.E. at Office Depot the other day for $39.

Adobe Creative Cloud's photographers package is $10 a month and includes the latest lightroom and photoshop. It also includes the mobile versions.

In lightroom, you can process one image, copy the settings or make them a preset, then use them for the rest of your images pretty easily.

I am using LR5 and it supports D750.  Also it is easy to do batch processing as well.

Yeah, ditto. For me, Lightroom is the way to go. It's amazing how much you can do with this application. And, it's designed to automate just about any process from import to export...and everything in between.

I used NX-D to batch process my photos and it worked well. Thanks Merco and everyone for advise and help.
