Re: Nikon Capture NX2 + D800 - help!!!

Thanks for the tips, folks. Always a learning curve coming from different software!

Lots of moaning about the interface on the web, but it's fine - no better or worse than other Raw converters: they all have their quirks, good and bad!

Have discovered two things already though:

  1. Sharpening is on by default, and is crude and horribly aggressive - even level 1 creates halos! I'll do my sharpening in Photoshop as usual!
  2. Resampling is also on by default, so cropped images are resized to set dimensions. Again, no thanks!

Is there anything else I should generally select/deselect, or otherwise note?

CNX2 applies your in camera settings, including sharpening, by default.

The default for resizing is resample, but you can of course change it
