Product Description

There are lots of photo opportunities that wait beyond the behind-the-camera experience you have with any of the Nikon D-series DSLR cameras. Nikon Capture-NX software is like having a professional darkroom and editing lab of your own. It's easy to use yet uncompromising in quality. Capture NX 2 features award-winning U Point technology for precision selection and application of enhancements without complicated selections or layer masks. Designed to closely match the way photographers work with their images, Capture NX 2 is easy to learn and creates the highest quality results. Now you can selectively edit photographs without the need to manually outline or mask the area for editing. Simply place a Selection Control Point anywhere on the photograph then choose from almost any adjustment such as D-Lighting, Unsharp Mask or Noise Reduction, while limiting the reach of that adjustment to just the selected area. Capture NX 2 adds an automatic retouch tool to its image editing toolbox allowing users to seamlessly remove blemishes, dust and other distracting elements from photographs while maintaining the integrity of the image. With just a simple slider adjustment you can easily open up shadows or recover blown-out highlights. Highlight recovery is most effective for RAW (NEF) files however it will work with JPEG and TIFF files as well.

Nikon's Capture NX 2 software is a full-featured, nondestructive photo-editing program that gives photographers all the tools they need to quickly and easily edit their photographs. Also available in a full version, the upgrade software--which requires a valid serial number from v1.x--offers such editing features as color control points, selection control points, an auto-retouch brush, and shadow/highlight adjustment.

Enhancing the hue, brightness, and saturation of an image is as simple as placing a color control point on your image, then adjusting the length of the sliders. For example, color control points are a remarkably convenient way to change the color of flowers to look better against green surrounding foliage. As an alternative, editors can take a dull gray sky and add blue to change the mood of a captured scene. The selection control points, meanwhile, let you selectively edit photographs without manually outlining or masking the area for editing. Simply place a selection control point anywhere on the photograph, and then choose from almost any adjustment, including D-Lighting, Unsharp Mask, or Noise Reduction, while limiting the 'reach" of that adjustment to just the selected area.

Capture NX 2 also adds an automatic retouch tool to its image editing toolbox, allowing users to seamlessly remove blemishes, dust, and other distracting elements from photographs while maintaining the integrity of the image. And thanks to the shadow/highlight adjustment, you can easily open up shadows or recover blown-out highlights. Highlight recovery is most effective for RAW (NEF) files; however, it will work with JPEG and TIFF files as well.

The software's redesigned v2 interface includes such features as customized workspaces, an improved toolbar function and layout, improved edit list functionality, a redesigned image browser with a favorites folder, and improved image resolution adjustments. The software's holdover features from v1.x range include black/white/neutral control points, color management control, color aberration control, distortion control, a color booster, contrast/brightness adjustment, a saturation/warmth adjustment, black-and-white conversion, straighten and crop tools, and much more.

Finally, Capture NX 2 features award-winning U Point technology for precision selection and application of enhancements without complicated selections or layer masks. Designed to closely match the way photographers work with their images, Capture NX2 is easy to learn and creates the highest-quality results. Note that the software fully integrates with all Nikon software, including Camera Control Pro 2, Image Authentication Software, Transfer, and ViewNX.

Customer Reviews:

  • Definately worth the money
    I had Capture NX1 and used it for all of my photo editing. I upgraded to Capture NX2 and enjoy the new improvements. For me, I found it to be very user friendly. This program is so like many things in life. You will get out of it anly what you put into it. Your time invested in reading the manual and learning the program will pay divends in both time and workflow....more info
  • NX2 Upgrade, well worth it!
    I saved $40 by buying the upgrade. I upgraded the trial version that came with my D700 and this version is even better than the previous version....more info
  • Great but some technical upgrade issues encountered
    The photo editing product features work as described and my photos are great. I did upgrade from Capture 4 to 6 to NX and now NX2. On my mac, there is no option or instructions to delete the older programs. When I launch the NX2 program it crashes so there may be conflicts with the older revisions and I have to restart NX2. There is no help on the Nikon website to solve this issue....more info
  • It reads the camera RAW data perfectly
    If you own a Nikon camera; then, this software is a must as it reads the RAW camera data perfectly with no modifications during download. None of the Adobe products have achieved this level of sophistication; but, they are working on it. The NX2 'Adjust' features are basic to processing your photo; then, if you feel further processing is needed, you can transfer it to that special program. For the price, NX2 cannot be beat....more info
  • The best image editor out there
    and especially for NEFs, but it does fantastic job on JPGs and Tiffs as well. U-point technology incorporated in this product is a struck of genius and makes editing images simple. Since this is from Nikon you know that no one knows NEFs proprietary algorithm like they do, so your conversion is the best it can be....more info
  • The best photo editor
    This program, for Nikon Digital camera, makes editing photo's easy and exact. Although it will work for any digital photo's it is especially great for Nikon raw files. It allows you to make so many changes to your photo's that you literally can create a new photo from you source document; plus it is easy to use. ...more info
