Capture NX-D 1.4.0a | 252 MB
Capture NX-D is a comprehensive and reliable software solution which was developed to offer Nikon enthusiasts with a method of manipulating RAW image files straight from the camera's storage device, without affecting the originals.
Clear-cut and user-friendly user interface
The application experiences a fairly lengthy yet uneventful setup process, after which it allows you to start working with it right away, thanks to its accessible, though slightly cluttered interface.
The main window of Capture NX-D displays the detected storage drives in a tree view panel, enablong you to browse through the folders and load the pictures that you intend to work with.
Effortlessly edit and convert NRF and NRW files from your Nikon camera
After selecting the photograph you wish to start with, the program automatically determines its ‘Histogram', displaying it a dedicated window for you to view. From the ‘Edit' panel you can begin operating various modifications, by altering the files ‘Adjustments', ‘Exposure Compensation', ‘White Balance', ‘Picture Control' and ‘Tone'.
Each feature can be manually adjusted and the changes that you perform will all be saved in a settings file, in order to ensure that the original photograph is left intact. Moreover, Capture NX-D lets you rotate the image left or right by ninety degrees or a full 180 degrees, as well as crop a section of the picture.
In addition, the utility allows you to convert your files to other formats, namely JPEG or TIFF, letting you configure the image size, quality and resolution. It also supports batch processing, enabling you to apply a set of customizations to an entire folder in one go, thus helping you to save some time.
A professional tool for manipulating Nikon-grabbed RAW images
In conclusion, Capture NX-D is an advanced and efficient application that you can rely on for editing your Nikon RAW files, allowing you to perform numerous changes and adjustments all while guarding the source photographs intact.
