Nikon has updated its Capture NX-D, ViewNX-i and Picture Control Utility 2 programs to address multiple bugs and add new features.

Nikon Capture NX-D

Nikon Capture NX-D version 1.5.2 is mainly about fixing various crashes and glitches that would occur when using the app. Below is a thorough rundown of the ten issues that have been fixed, according to the changelog:

  1. The application would crash under some conditions.
  2. If the Specify size option was selected in the batch processing dialog, some time would elapse before the Start button would be available.
  3. Changes to image length in the Convert Files dialog would sometimes not be matched by changes to width.
  4. All changes to NEF/NRW (RAW) pictures made with NEF/NRW + JPEG enabled would be lost when the files were saved in JPEG format.
  5. Batch processing and file conversion could not be resumed once paused.
  6. The application would sometimes fail to launch.
  7. Image artifacts (“noise”) would increase in pictures saved in other formats.
  8. Straighten now functions as intended.
  9. Files saved at an image quality of “99” would be larger than those saved at an image quality of “100”.
  10. Portions of NEF (RAW) images shot with the Z 6 would sometimes not display correctly after the pictures were saved using NEF processing.

Nikon Capture NX-D version 1.5.2 can be downloaded for macOS and Windows computers on Nikon's website.

Nikon ViewNX-i

Nikon ViewNX-i version 1.3.2 fixes two main issues found in version 1.3.1. The first is an issue that caused files saved at an image quality of 99 to be larger in size than images captured at an image quality of 100. The update also fixes a problem that caused files being saved using 'Ctrl+S' to lose or alter the XMP/IPTC information.

Nikon ViewNX-i version 1.3.2 can be downloaded for macOS and Windows computers on Nikon's website.

Nikon Picture Control Utility

Last up is Picture Control Utility version 2.4.2. This update fixes an issue that caused some NEF images shot with Nikon Z6 cameras to not be displayed properly after the images were saved.

Picture Control Utility version 2.4.2 can be downloaded for macOS and Windows computers on Nikon's website.
