Adding NEF preview to Linux Mint file manager Nemo

Nikon Logo

If you want to be able to preview NEF (Nikon raw) images in Linux Mint’s file manager Nemo, you need to do the following:

  1. Open Preferences window for Nemo file manager from Edit -> Preferences menu
  2. Switch to Preview tab within the Preferences window
  3. Set “Show Thumbnails” to Always if you want to show thumbnails on remote drives
  4. Set “Only for files smaller than” to 100 MB
  5. Install the following packages from Software Manager UI:
    • gnome-raw-thumbnailer
    • libopenraw1
    • libopenrawgnome1

Note: Browsing remote/network directories will be sloooooooow if you enable thumbnails for remote drives.
