Hi all, I took some pictures in NEF format from my Nikon camera. White balance of the images look fine when I viewed the NEF images from my computer. However, when I converted it to JPG, the colors had more hazy color. I was using the NEF to JPG converter which had an option of maintaining white balance if possible. When I selected the option, I was able to obtain JPG images with white balance closer to my NEF images. Below are the links for 2 images, first link is the JPG image without selecting the option of maintaining white balance and the second link is the one where white balance was maintained during the conversion. Can you please explain why the NEF images seem to have better white balance than the JPG images. NEF to JPG without maintaining WB NEF to JPG while maintaining WB I was trying to edit the NEF images using photostudio darkroom software. When I loaded the NEF image, the data showed the temperature as around 9400K and the image had predominantly hazy color to it. While, as far as I understand, the daylight temperatures are around 3000K and white balance in NEF images when opened in windows software looked as if taken in normal lighting as I had mentioned earlier. Thank you all.
