Nikon has announced an update to its RAW conversion and image management program. As well as adding support for the Nikon D50, Nikon Capture version 4.3 now adds color aberration control, red eye correction and improves processing for NEF files. The new color aberration tool automatically reduces the appearance of color fringing. The multi image window, which displays thumbnails and allows simultaneous editing of multiple images, is now easier to use; names of preferred folders can be changed to something the user finds easier to remember.

The latest update to Nikon's powerful image processing software adds new features including Color Aberration Control that enhance image appearance
TOKYO – Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce an update of Nikon Capture 4 to version 4.3, available for immediate download. This newest version of Nikon's powerful Nikon Capture image processing software adds new tools for image adjustments and improves selected processing functions. These improvements help to further optimize image processing for Nikon's exclusive NEF (Nikon Electronic Format) files. Also added is support for the new Nikon D50 digital SLR camera. As with previous versions, this update to version 4.3, also supports all NEF, JPEG and TIFF files produced by today’s Nikon camera models and legacy models as well.
New additions to version 4.3's performance include Color Aberration Control (1) and Red Eye Correction. Color Aberration Control leverages the advantages of the NEF file format at the digital processing stage to detect and reduce the appearance of color fringing, (the chromatic difference of magnification), which typically appears in fine detail at the edge of the image; a result of the differing wavelengths of colors in peripheral areas. This new tool makes the reduction of the appearance of color fringing an automatic operation; just select the Color Aberration Control menu within Nikon Capture 4.
The new Red Eye Correction function automatically diminishes the appearance of red pupils, sometimes experienced in the eyes of subjects photographed using a flash. Red Eye Correction works not only on JPEG and TIFF files, but also on NEF files.
The Multi Image Window, which allows a variety of thumbnail displays and simultaneous editing of multiple images, is now easier to use. Names of preferred folders can be set to a title that the user finds easier to remember, all without changing the original folder's name.
Note: Those with Nikon Capture 4 versions 4.0.0 ~ 4.1.3 installed must update to version 4.2.0 before updating to version 4.3.
