DIGITAL NEGATIVES

Digital Negatives Explained

NEF Files are the original raw 12 or 14-bit image files from the camera (Nikon) and contain the maximum amount of information. They must be processed for characteristics such as density, color, contrast and sharpness. From NEF format the files are converted to 16-bit Photoshop CS3 PSD files. This stage is the best for retouching where scars, blemishes, stray hairs etc. are fixed. Once any defects are corrected overall sharpening and or skin softening is applied. In the final step files are generally converted from 16-bit files to 8-bit jpeg files to prepare them for viewing/printing or as Tiff files for color separations for brochures. Jpeg files can be compressed in varying amounts to save disk space. The less compressed or non-compressed images create larger files and require more disk space but have a much higher quality than compressed images. File sizes can be as large as 10 to 20 MB files depending on compression ratio.

JPEG Are the files that can be viewed or printed at a photo lab. To obtain the best prints and increase speed and accuracy of a print these files should be resized to the size and resolution of the desired print. For example the large file should be sized down to a 4x6 200 dpi or 300 dpi image before printing. If an 8x10 print is desired the file should be sized 8x10 200 dpi or 300 dpi image. Printing an image sized as an 8x10 200 dpi as a 4x6 image will force the printing software to discard information and degrade the image. It will also take longer to print.

TIFF - Are used to produce color separations for the creation of calendars, product brochures and posters on offset-color printing presses.

Disks are generally provided with the following files/folders:

Email image These are generally small size 4x6 or smaller low Dpi images at 72 dpi or 133 dpi for viewing on computers. They should not be printed due to the lack of information contained in the file and the low resolution. File sizes from 70 to 400KB depending on compression ratio.

Small print image These are 4x6 images at 200 to 300 dpi. They should not be printed at sizes larger than specified or the image will be seriously degraded. If a larger size is required it is better to start with the larger size images and let the printer software resize it. File sizes from 500 to 1500KB depending on compression ratio.

Large print image These images are the full sized images and should be used only for prints larger than 4x6. Actual maximum size is dependant on the quality desired and the camera ASA at the time of shooting. Print sizes up to 4x6 feet are possible. File sizes from 2000 to 6000KB depending on compression ratio.
