Nikon Capture NX-D overview

Capture NX-D (was Capture NX) is a non-destructive RAW image processing application that utilizes a new sidecar system to save adjustments for Nikon photographers looking to make adjustments to their .NEF or .NRW files. Photographers who are used to working with their .NEF or .NRW files in Nikon Capture NX2 or Nikon View NX2 will find the new Capture NX-D quicker in its processing time and intuitive to use. 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.

What’s new in version 1.6.5

Version 1.6.5:
  • Fixed an issue that prevented the software opening pictures recorded with the iPhone 12 (the extension must be changed from ".JPEG" to ".JPG").
  • Fixed an issue that resulted in extensive changes to hue when files in the AdobeRGB color space were saved in JPEG format.
  • Added support for macOS Big Sur (version 11).
  • Ended support for macOS High Sierra (version 10.13).

Just d/l for use with my Nikon DSLR and deleted within 30 minutes. Most confusing GUI and UX. No idea what was happening; I opened a NEF [Nikon RAW] file and tried to manipulate image. Waste of time. Back to Photoshop and Pixelmator for me. Been using PS for 20+ years and Pixelmator since release. Nikon GUI is a poor effort at 'converting' Windows icons and file management. I had hoped to use Nikon software for Nikon Raw files but clearly not going to happen. Train wreck of software. Your mileage may vary, and if you get it work, I am very happy for you, but my experience working a 44MB Raw file was something I never want to repeat, and I definitely won't be back.

The latest version of NX2 is version 2.3.0 and it's much faster than previous versions. Actions that took several seconds and sometimes minutes, are now processed much faster. The app is now 64-bit. This software is a great tool if you use Nikon DSLRs. What I still really miss is the possibility to use plugins as Silver Efex Pro™ 2 from NikSoftware. I hope that Nikon and NikSoftware eventually finally will decide to make it possible to use all of NikSooftwares plugins from within NX2. That will make my day!

With all it quirky ways, I would love to use CaptureNX2 but it doesn't play well with other apps. If only it supported DNG. I would buy it right away. An updated and working Snow Leopard compatible ViewNX would also not go amiss. But nobody from Nikon will read this.
