    How to discover (and recover) lost tonal information with Capture NX2

    When you tweak the monochrome conversion’s tones using the Filter Hue and Color Filter Strength sliders, you run the risk of overexposing the brightest parts of the shot. To spot these areas choose View > Show Lost Highlights.

    Clipped highlights will appear as white, while correctly exposed areas will stay black. Clipped highlights will print out with no detail – they’ll just be pure white.

    Fortunately, it’s possible to tweak the Brightness or Contrast sliders until the clipped highlights turn black.

    There’s also a rather useful Show Lost Shadows command that displays clipped shadows as patches of black against a white screen.
