  • To the person Mario was helping - Make sure you save all metadata into the image files / xmp files before you leave LR, otherwise it will not be available for IMatch to upload into its catalog ...
  • I believe, in general, new features are released as soon as they have been developed.  The variable is the cash available upfront to develop the feature.  It is a bad idea to wait and have the ...
  • The logic is mostly correct. However, with good competition, since you have not paid the larger amount for an all out purchase you are more likely to switch to other software and see if it does ...
  • They have try before you buy.  I could not answer how it would look to your eyes on your equipment.  You will need to decide yourself.
  • Yes, it can be used as a DAM program/pseudo catalog program (no actual catalog file which is why it is faster).  It allows you to quickly organize and label images in identifying folders when ...
  • If your files are uploaded, they are already on your hard drive.  That is what uploaded means.  If you do not know how to copy/upload your files from the card to your hard drive, there are a few ...
  • Most software have lots of shortcomings, including Adobe products so this post is some kind of emotional overreaction with limited understanding of the product they are commenting on. Capture NX-D ...
  • As far as being compatible with old nef files - it depends on what you mean by being compatible.  If you make basic edits to a nef file in Capture NX-2 such as Picture Control type, White Balance, ...
  • "View and capture are raw converter. Capture nxd use sidecar, view will save your edit on to the file, so it is slower" This is not correct. BOTH Capture NX-D and View NX-i save edits to side car...

  • I have ver. 1.4.5 and do not observe either of these bugs.  In Capture NX-D if I convert one file I have the option to put it in the same folder as raw file with same name, or select a different ...
  • Yes it does an okay job for sorting with a few options - though you have to manually update the sort on occasion. I was replying to someone who, I believe said, ViewNx-i sorts just to date but not ...
  • Commented on article Nikon D7500 vs Canon EOS 80D

    Une Vache - that is what this site does - generate articles about digital cameras. What would you suggest that a site called dpreview.com do instead ? Make an article only when the last D7200 has...

  • I realize this is an old post, but neither ViewNXi or Capture NXD sorts by date and name as this post suggests.  Maybe they used to a couple of years ago?  Not sure. because all of my files have ...
  • Replied in blown whites
    I agree with your assessment.  I was responding to someone up-the-line who was having trouble with the matrix system and unwanted blown-out areas - and they then attempted to use spot metering and ...
  • Replied in blown whites
    Spot metering is almost foolproof if you know how to use it - put a bit slower (but for constant outdoor light just meter once).  Need to meter on middle tone, in general.  If you meter on dark ...
  • Replied in blown whites
    There is really no such thing as highlight "recovery".  Either raw pixels are blown or not. There is such a thing as guessing what might look sorta nice and making/manufacturing new pixels based on ...
  • ViewNX-i and Capture NX-D allow you to select the editing color space from any you have in you computer. For raw files converted to tif or jpg this will be the color profile embedded in the output ...
  • Replied in blown whites
    You still meter in manual mode.  Exposure compensation helps you meter more correctly depending on the reflectance of the subject.  OR, you could meter without compensation set and then have to ...
  • Yes, check blinkies as well on image and set Picture Control setting with extra high contrast.  This will cause blinkies to show up more easily - before the real raw pixels are actually at peak ...
  • Here is sample for Nikon D750 Imaging Resources test shot. Raw conversion of Nikon D750 image by Lightroom. Capture NX-D does not have any of the rainbow effect shown here.  You will need to ...
