No, Cloud has no effect. Following on what you said, I uploaded a NEF direct to Cloud, and it arrived safely, but I could not convert it to a Jpeg. When I was first successful, it was coverted by the online link given above. But with them, the only option seemed to be to send the new Jpeg to Cloud, from where it could be downloaded back into the PC again! Don't know why they have to keep things so compliacted!
