Nikon has integrated its viewing utility ViewNX-i and processing/editing utility Capture NX-D into one program, NX Studio. NX Studio is now available for free download in the Windows or Mac version.
It processes Nikon RAW .NEF and .NRW image files. You can access Picture Controls, White Balance, Exposure, Active D-lighting, Noise Reduction and other options found in many Nikon cameras. It, of course, supports editing options for JPEG and TIFF.
A variety of views is available for thumbnails, location data, metadata, side-by-side comparisons and full screen images. Color Control Points make it easy to apply image processing only to colors in a selected range in an image. You can also quickly and easily adjust brightness, saturation, hue or contrast only to the chosen radius and to objects of similar color in the selected area.
The menu now utilizes the same terms found in Nikon camera menus. You can also edit movie with Movie Editor, which allows the usual functionality: trim unwanted segments from your movie footage, add background music, splice together multiple clips into one video, and create slide shows that include both still images and videos. You can publish your creation directly to Nikon Image Space or to YouTube.
NX Studio works in collaboration with other Nikon software, including Camera Control Pro 2 and Picture Control Utility 2.
