    I cropped an image and now the original is cropped. Anyone know how to get back to original uncropped? Thanks.
  2. I don't understand how that can happen. I'm so stumped by that that I've got to ask some basic questions.

    Did you save the file, open it, and bring up the version titled "Original?
    If so, did you use Ctrl-0 to ensure that the image is being displayed full screen?

    EDIT: A new idea -- are you referring to a NEF, JPEG or TIFF? If it's not a NEF, the only way to revert to the original uncropped version is to open the NEF.

    If you have saved the file as a NEF, just delete the Crop step from the Edit List. If you cropped a TIFF (or JPEG) and saved as a JPEG or TIFF, you can't go back.

    Oops, my bad, I opened in NEF, but I didn't realize that I saved as a jpeg. I found the original. Whew. And just to test it, I cropped severely...save nef...closed and reopened. I noticed it was cropped just like I saved it. But I was able to revert to "original" version. Thanks for the help. BTW - I'm really liking this NX2. IMO - so much easier to learn than CS3.
  5. Brad, you might want to get in the habit of always naming the last saved version even if it is the only version that is not the original. I follow Jason's great idea of always naming it "Master." Once you're in the habit of naming all saved versions, you will never lose access to a version.
