    photo downloader dng preview default settings change

    rillumarei

      hi,

       

      How can I change jpg preview picture size from mediun (current default setting) to large in dng conversion settings? I need it to be large, but I can´t find where that setting can be changed to be default large. I´m using CS 5.1.

       

      Thanks,

       

      Tuomas

          Your request is a little vauge to me.  So - -

           

          To get a full screen preview press space bar.

           

          To enlarge size of preview window use standard mouse technique to make window larger

           

          To enlarge size of thumbnails use slider in lower right corner.

            Let me try to be a bit clearer...

             

            The OP asks for the included jpeg preview in a DNG file.

             

            To change this setting you have to go to Bridge and under the menu Adobe Bridge CS(x) choose Camera Raw settings.

             

            Look at the chapter DNG file handling and put a checkmark in front of the option 'update embedded jpeg previews. Then from the drop down menu choose full size

             

            Or if you use Adobe Photodownloader to convert to DNG choose the settings next to convert to DNG and inhere set jpeg preview from medium to full size. (be aware the file size grows also with this setting)

              hello,

               

              Thanks for your response. I´ve tried that camera raw settings->"update embedded jpeg previews-> large". According my understanding, that should make it as and default value but no. Every time when I download pictures from card, I have to manually choose large option from dng conversion settings. So, my question remains, how to make large to be default for jpg previews instead of medium?

               

              Possible bug here?

                Don't think so because the setting should stay sticky, it does on my system.

                 

                When having Photodownloader open choose settings next to the convert to DNG and inhere also change the preview to large.

                 

                If this also needs to be reset every time you should reset the preferences for Bridge.

                  Thanks. Have done that photodownloader trick as well, several times. That´s just the thing which is buggin me. Even default dng jpg preview size is in camera raw settings large, that is not in that photodownloader setting options. It remains to be medium. Every time using photodownloader, setting has to be change from sticky medium to large.

                   

                  I think that Bridge preferences reset will be the next trick. Just need to find out how to do it.

                    Don't quite understand that, does your camera shoot DNG as Raw format? Or do you shoot Raw and jpeg together as setting.

                    That is the easiest part, hold down option (mac) or control (windows) while restarting Bridge and from the menu choose reset preferences. This will put all your settings back to default.

                     

                    If this does not help and you are on a Mac you can also delete the plist file for both Bridge and Photodownloader from the user library but I don't know the equivalent for Windows.

                      No, I´m shooting only RAW (Nikon NEF).

                       

                      I tried that reset as well (thank you for that tip how to do it). No help. DNG previews are still medium. Camera raw preferences->DNG file handling->update embedded JPEG previews are "full size".
