Thanks for you reply.
My Nikon D2X my raw files would open in Nikon Transfer and then to Nikon View 6. From there I move selected images to photo shop where they would be edited in raw and into Photoshop....no problems.( I was used to Nikon View so Idon't use to The Bridge)
With the CFV back:
I installed the flex color program.
Put the card in the reader and Nikon Transfer would open.
I made the Flex color the destination and it would show up in the Nikon View Menu but I am not able to open them. I can't find them at all in the Flex color program.
I would like to open the images in Nikon View then to raw editing and then to Photoshop just as I do with my Nikon NEF files.
Do I have to use the Flex color program ?
I tried transfering the CFV images using Nikon View as the destination. It showed up in the list but no images opened
As I mentioned my computer skills outside of Photoshop are limited. I could not find any info in the manuals.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
There weren't any good, knowledgable Hasselblad dealers in the area, huh?
No - NIkon software is not going to recognize Hasselblad files.
The CFV might be compatible with Raw Developer by Irridium Systems. I know that some of the other Hasselblad backs are compatible.
Otherwise, it's Flexcolor. However, if you're comfortable with Photoshop, Flexcolor does not present a significant learning stretch. Many of the tools are very similar to Photoshop - curves, levels, unsharpening, selctive color correction, etc.
The Flexcolor manual, like most, will tell you what each tool and menu will do, but will not provide recommendations or depth on how to get the most of it. I would recommend that you join the Flexframe forum, a Yahoo Groups forum made up of Imacon/Hasselblad members. Just go to www.yahoo.com
, click "Groups", type in Flexframe, and you'll be directed.
In the meantime, if you have specific questions about the workflow, just post them or email me directly and I'll give you the information.
