Hi all


I have some RAW pictures taken with my Nikon Coolpix P340 and I am trying to do some basic post processing such as rotation and adding gps location data. What I have noticed is that ViewNX is not applying the changes to the RAW files but it keeps the changes in meta files. So when I try to view the RAW files with another application other than ViewNX i the RAW pictures are still not rotated despite the fact I rotate them in ViewNX i.


Is there any way to apply the changes directly to the RAW files?

Raw files can not be edited. Adjustments can be applied before converting to an editable format such as tiff or jpeg.

That is correct...if you save / export the image to another format, the changes would be applied to the exported image...
