NEF to JPG Converter : Image File Format Converter

In the traditional film cameras which required a roll of film for the photographs to be taken. Without this film, the photography was not possible. When someone had used this film, it was called the negatives using which we could create any number of photographs.

In the digital cameras, the photographs are saved in the RAW image file format which can be said to be similar to the negatives in the film cameras. For the Nikon digital cameras, the RAW format used is NEF. It contains everything captured by the camera’s sensor including the metadata such as camera orientation, focal length, whether flash was used and so on.

Because NEF is a RAW image file format, it contains too much data and should be removed unless you have extra storage space on your mobile phone. If you do not want to remove but compress the NEF image file format, then you can use a freeware application called NEF to JPG Converter.
