Nikon Capture NX Software

August 11, 2006 | By Staff
MELVILLE, NY (August 9, 2006) – Nikon (www.nikondigital.com) has begun shipping the highly acclaimed new Capture NX™ software to Nikon authorized retailers across the nation. Capture NX™ is new software that is designed specifically for photographers, providing a unique and easy to understand interface with tools that photographers need, but without the level of complexity and clutter of other image editing applications. The software can be used with JPEG and TIFF format images from any source, and its patented new U Point™ technology offers photographers a dramatically simplified way to edit their pictures by enabling them to enhance specific areas of a picture selectively, without the use of masks, selections, or layers. Capture NX also works with Nikon’s RAW (NEF) format images, and inherits Nikon’s robust RAW processing capabilities for the highest quality results from NEF files. Capture NX is designed to appeal to a broad range of consumers. Users with compact digital cameras such as Nikon’s Coolpix series will enjoy the simplicity of using U Point technology to quickly enhance their JPEG pictures, eliminate any red-eye using the Automatic Red-Eye Correction tool and even resurrect underexposed images with the software’s D-Lighting feature. Professional and advanced photographers will appreciate the time they can save using U Point technology to make edits to their images, as well as fully utilize over 25 new tools in the software, including powerful batch processing capabilities, advanced color management features, Distortion Correction enhancement and the ability to make every edit non-destructively (when a JPEG, TIFF or NEF image is saved in NEF format). A detailed online demonstration of how Capture NX works is available at www.capturenx.com or www.nikondigital.com.
