Report 2010 Photokina - Nikon announces View NX 2, a comprehensive new version of its popular bundled software package that enables users to easily import, browse, edit and share images and D-movies. Building upon the successful View NX software, Nikon View NX 2 is a feature-packed, user-friendly suite supplied with Nikon digital cameras and available for download. The software now offers a range of tools dedicated to editing D-movie files captured by today’s DSLR and compact cameras. In addition to basic data importing and browsing, Nikon View NX 2 incorporates various frequently used adjust menus and tools such as resize, brightness control, crop and straighten, as well as sophisticated RAW processing functions.
Nikon USA has begun shipping the new Capture NX software to Nikon authorized retailers across the nation. Capture NX 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, says the company. The software can be used with JPEG- and TIFF-format images from any source. Its newly patented U Point technology offers photographers a simplified way to edit their pictures by enabling them to enhance specific areas of a picture selectively, without the use of masks, selections, or blayers.
