Capture NX2 questions
Dec 14, 2008


I hope this is the right forum to post this is...

I'm trying a trial version of Carture NX2. I currently use Adobe Camera Raw. I really like some of the features of NX2 (especially the color control points for localized adjustments) but I have a couple of questions.

1) Anyone know why the files sizes increase so much when saving an NEF file? With ACR any changes are saved in a small sidecard file. With NX2 the changes are saved in the NEF file and the file size increases from around 12 meg to 18-21 meg. I am selecting lossless compressed when saving (same as the original NEF).

2) With ACR I can bring several files into the program, correct one, and apply all or some of those corrections to the other files. It is very fast. With NX2, I can copy the settings and paste to other files, but I don't see any way to only apply certain settings - seems to be all or none. Also, the process is a lot slower and more cumbersome than ACR.

Any input would be appreciated!
