Then I used Adobe bridget to convert the images to JPGs and all the images are a stop or two darker. I opened all the images in Photoshop and they're all about two stops darker. WTF? This has also happened to several photographer I know, and they were not a big help. SO .... HELP!
Need more Info...like what version photoshop? When was the last time you got a raw file update for photoshop? What color profile gamut you were shooting in? When you viewed them full screen, what mode were you in? what program did you use? was it still nikonview?
Nikon view will open the file up in whatever colorspace you took the photo in, and display it as "real" as opposed to say, taking the pic in adobe colorspace and opening that file up in an sRGB program like windows or acdsee. The colors and lighting look dramatically different. Also photoshop automatically adjusts the image when you open up a raw or dng file... You need to turn off all of the functions that are embedded both in your camera or in photoshop raw...You need to be more clear...
