    You can go to Nikon USA and download the capture software. You can find it at https://downloadcenter.nikonimglib.com/en/index.html

    I do not use thi anymore. I use light room now but this does work well. It woul be a good start.

    right-click on a NEF file... and the fly-out box opens.

    Select Open With
    scroll down and select Preview.app

    The select the File Menu in Preview and select the EXPORT option...

    Once that screen opens, select whichever file format you want...

    Ron, you do realize that NEF's aren't edited, don't you? Are you looking to convert to jpeg without doing any editing to the files? It would be better to do your editing first.

    If a copy of Nikon view NX will work on a mac then viewing the nef files in that allows you to save out a jpeg, if you have jpeg settings in your camera it will use those,if its a batch conversion you want then i dont know.
