Nikon has unveiled a new photo editing software, Nikon Capture NX-D, for processing and adjusting raw files captured with Nikon DSLRs, Nikon 1 cameras and digital compacts from Nikon’s COOLPIX range that offer raw format shooting.
If you are a Nikon loyalist and shoot in RAW, you can make tweaks to your Nikon raw files and experiment with different looks using Nikon’s Capture NX2 software. Capture NX 2 is also designed to read all the extra information in a NEF file, so you can make edits and try out various White Balance settings. It’s as though you’re still on location with your DSLR in hand!
In addition to these handy features, when you open a RAW file in Capture NX 2, you gain access to an extra Camera Settings panel that enables you to get more from your shots. Let’s see how it works…
Nikon Capture NX 2 software offers a lot of precision tools for making selective adjustments to your photos that can enhance a specific part of an image. In this Capture NX 2 tutorial we will show you how to use your software’s Control Points for greater precision in your photo editing.
Capture NX 2 Control Points, for instance, enable you to click on a specific colour or tone to sample it. You can then use a Control Point’s sliders to adjust a wide range of attributes for the sampled colour, such as hue, saturation and brightness.
