Command-S or Control-S brings up the Save As window in PNinja.

When I can access my laptop again I will move this discussion from the post to another area.

I saw that I can "render" a DNG to tiff or jpeg so perhaps photoshop will read it, but it says I need to email for a trial license.

Yes. I see that. Very nice correction! I'd say you've just about wrapped this one up, friend.

Congrats on the completion of your first formal UV floral post! :lol:

(Of course, you'll get even better, with ongoing practice ... because you'll continue to hone your eye for discerning UV-neutrality over time. The learning "curves" are always there. Pun intended.)

Igor,

thank you! Today I went to the campus gardens and shot many photos in UV. a bit too windy to have good shots though. but I can see many blue colors now after setting the custom WB using the Virgin Teflon.

next task is getting some flashes...pretty soon I will have to carry the UV gear, instead of my regular one (D700+wireless flash +macro lens).

my friend (who gave me the flowers) said the species should be Disocactus ackermannii, not hybrida...

Do you want to edit the original post Zach? If you don't have time (I know you are busy!), I can help out. Let me know.

Today I found even the free software Picasa 3 can see my raw files correctly with the in camera white balance already applied....(but for some reason more noisy than my jpeg!). Adobe should really fix their programs!

but i can open the raw file from INSIDE Picasa 3, using photoshop, and it appears to use the correct WB! This is strange. but not directly, even by LR5, which is very new.
