    Last version I tried still wasn't ICC aware. I also didn't like the way it displayed all the images under a folder instead of just the images in the current folder. 2.1 is a fairly recent release I think but I haven't bothered installing it to see if things have changed.
     
  3. Pardon my ignorance..............what is "ICC aware"?

    Relates to color management. If you keep everything in sRGB it's not really something you have to worry about much, but if you use other color spaces for your images (I use ProPhoto RGB for NEF conversions), it becomes an issue because applications that aren't color managed will not display your images correctly.
     
  5. I have everything set up for sRGB on all programs.
     
  6. But what I'm really trying to find out is..................... how do I convert NEF to jpg with Picasa2?

    Export button

    You need to use the Export feature to do this. You can select a thumbnail and then press the Export button at the bottom of the page. Or, CTRL-Shift-S will also do it.
     
  8. Thanks, Peter. That's what I'd not figured out. I appreciate your help.
