About this course
Capture NX-D is a non-destructive RAW image processing application that utilizes a new sidecar system to save adjustments. Once the .NEF or .NRW file is processed, it can then be moved to other imaging applications in a 16-bit TIFF format with a single click of the mouse. Capture NX-D is designed to get the most out of Nikon RAW image files—so images will look as great as they do whether they’re from the latest Nikon cameras or older files that you want to work on again.
If you are a Nikon RAW shooter, then I would highly recommend you to use the Capture NX-D to get back the real true to life colours captured by the sensor.
In this course I will take you through the complete workflow of using the Capture NX-D right from installing the software to explaining all the various functions of it.
You do not need to have any prior experience of using any RAW processing application. I will be teaching you every single aspect of opening the RAW file and how to tweak it to get the best out of it.
I will take you through all the key processing tools in Capture NX-D and teach you the art of processing the Nikon RAW file.
Who should take this course
