comment Am I permanently altering my NEF/raw files if I save changes in Nikon ViewNX 2?
Thanks! That's very helpful. I've already come up witha workflow using Lightroom but this is probably the most technically correct answer.

comment What adjustments are specific to RAW files?
Thanks; I am not opening NEF files in View NX 2, adjusting, and then opening those same files in Photoshop. I have been experimenting with different programs to find the workflow I prefer. I was curious (in this question) if basically I could ignore any of the sliders in the RAW adjustment dialog because those same adjustments are available after importing.

comment What adjustments are specific to RAW files?
That makes a lot of sense, thanks! (I'm a programmer so I am very familiar with how just one bit more gives you vastly more information)

comment Why store both JPEG and raw?
I am just getting (back) into photography. While that pretty much discredits any advice I am about to give, here is what I am currently doing: I am currently shooting in RAW+JPEG and, as @CadentOrange said, for the 99% of my photos which no amount of RAW processing will improve I then delete the RAW files when I import. That way for the 1% of photos (I'd say it's really more like 10%) which I made poor choices of white balance or whatever when shooting, I can still recover from.

comment Are RAW files safe from changes?
Is this true in all programs? E.G. is this true in Nikon View?

I actually think this may be a duplicate of photo.stackexchange.com/questions/11705/…

revised In live view, why does my aperture open before and after a picture?
Fixed spelling of "view", rest of the changes are to meet minimum
