Melville, NY—Nikon released its new Nikon NX Studio (Ver.1.0) all-in-one software. The software enables the viewing, processing and editing of still images and video captured with a Nikon digital camera. It is available now to download for free.
With the new NX Studio computer software, users can enjoy the benefits of full-scale editing of still images, with a more intuitive operation and workflow. Moreover, by integrating the functions of Nikon’s ViewNX-i image-viewing software and Capture NX-D processing and editing software, NX Studio now offers a single software solution.
The free NX Studio integrates a host of editing features to help users achieve their desired output. Among them are picture controls, white balance settings and exposure compensation for RAW data. In addition, users can explore the benefits of color control points; they enable color adjustment to a specific area of a photo. They can also use a retouch brush feature for advanced correction of an area.
Moreover, NX Studio has the same interface of previous Nikon software applications. However, it improves upon operation by offering a functional yet simple consolidated menu design. Furthermore, the menu is organized by workflow categories: browsing, processing/editing and export/sharing. What’s more, Nikon enhanced the overall response speed for each function for smoother processing of both still images and videos.
To further improve workflow and expand the possibilities of imaging expression, NX Studio supports the transfer of images to Nikon Image Space, Nikon’s image-sharing and storage service. Subsequently, users can easily upload edited videos to YouTube.
Nikon NX Studio Key Features
With NX Studio, users can view, process as well as edit still images and video in one place. The software handles JPG, TIFF and .NEF (RAW) files. Also, menu items and terminology match that of Nikon cameras.
The software also features a variety of display options. They include filmstrip with both horizontal and vertical preview options, as well as a 2/4 screen comparison option. In addition, it provides an easy-to-read shooting information display.
The new program also inherits XMP/IPTC information editing and preset management functions from ViewNX-i. Additionally, it incorporates detailed editing functions from Capture NX-D. For instance, it maintains color control points that enable the adjustment of colors within a specified area, allowing for the precise editing of images.
Moreover, users can choose how adjustment information is saved; whether in a separate file using the sidecar file format or directly to the image itself. Finally, NX Studio works with other programs, such as Nikon Transfer 2 and Camera Control Pro 2, for a smoother post-shooting workflow.
Nikon will continue to update NX Studio with the release of future camera models to ensure continued support. To see system compatibility and download NX Studio for Windows or Mac at no charge, visit: https://www.nikonusa.com/nxstudio.
