Supercharge your workflow with the next generation of high-quality image editing and processing. Utilizing U Point technology, Advanced Nikon Capture 4 delivers you powerful tools to help you fully realize the potential of your photographic imagination. The new Capture NX software releases not only the power of Nikon's Electronic Format (NEF) files; for the first time it makes JPEG and TIFF processing and editing elegant and easy enough for any photographer to implement. There are no complicated procedures - Nikon's new interface provides intuitive access to all of the tools you need. Make you photographic possibilities endless and realize the power of your imagination with Capture NX. U Point technology Capture NX image editing utilizes Nik Software's patented U Point technology. This new innovation in photo image processing and editing can be applied to Nikon's NEF files, as well as any camera's JPEG and TIFF files (some Capture NX functions apply to NEF files only). Capture NX features powerful tools that enhance images without complicated processes. Simply select a control point and adjust it's slider until you see the image as you like it. It's a highly visual, intuitive technique. Color Control Points Color Control Points let you directly select and isolate an entire image or an area within it for enhancement quickly. Within moments, you can choose and use any Color Control Point to modify any aspect of a selected area including: Size, Hue, Brightness, Saturation, Contrast, Red, Green, Blue, and Warmth. Capture NX also learns to distinguish multiple control points. This feature eliminates complexity and saves you time when you are making a series of enhancements to your photograph. This lets you create your professional quality image in a matter of seconds! Show Selection for accurate control Use the show selection feature for each Color Control Point to see which area of the image is affected by the Color Control Point. This process reverses the image into a black and white view and clearly shows the image areas under adjustment. Black, White, Neutral Control Points Black, White and Neutral Control Points can be used to set the dynamic range and correct color casts in your images. Neutral Control Points can also be used to set color balance in an image. Each Control Point appears on the image and can be easily dragged from point to point, for precise movement and positioning to achieve the desired effect. The Control Points' sliders let you adjust their effect for the respective Control Point areas. Neutral Control Points can be used to set a targeted color to any color available within the color picker. This is useful for removing color casts and toning, even without a neutral object in the scene. Use of multiple Neutral Control Points helps reduce multiple color casts and enhance selected colors in images. The drag, point and slider control is very easy to use, yet very powerful and creative in its effect! Red-eye reduction Thanks to U Point technology, red-eye can be easily removed. Just place a Red-Eye Reduction Control Point on each of the offending eyes, and away it goes! With just a few slider adjustments, you can use a color Control Point to make blue (or any other eye color) eyes brighter, darker or more radiant. With a mere Ctrl-D click, you can duplicate your Color Control Point, so you can rest assured that the effect to each eye will be the same. Photo Quality Non-destructive image editing Capture NX applies non-destructive image processing to NEF files, which means that you'll never compromise your original image. Every enhancement made is saved in an edit list with the original data and thumbnail. When changes are made to a JPEG or TIFF, however, it will affect the quality of the original image. To avoid compromising the quality of your images, Capture NX allows you to save the image under a different file name, or simply covert the file into Nikon's NEF format. No modifications made to NEF files Parameters set on any Nikon camera-produced NEF file (White Balance, Sharpening, Color Mode, Saturation, etc.) are applied to the image you transfer to Capture NX for editing. So your creative photographic decisions are preserved, and there's less to do later when you're finishing the photo on your computer. Versatility Enjoy the sheer power and convenience of intuitive photo editing. Selective tools With Capture NX, you get additional tools that allow you to apply over 25 enhancement styles. Batching By automatically applying one or more enhancements to a series of images, the new, improved batch processing of Capture NX is simple, and saves photographer's time. Edit List For easier, more intuitive photo editing, the Capture NX Edit List helps you to track, cancel or add new modifications. Browser The completely redesigned Capture NX Browser lets you sort, organize, compare, tag and improve images. Use it to select an image to enhance, rename a series of photographs, or quickly and easily apply a batch process to a group of images.
