Nikon Corp announced the release of the new NX Studio (Ver.1.0), which enables the viewing, processing and editing of still images and video captured with a Nikon digital camera. The software is available for download for free.
By integrating the functions of the new image viewing software, ViewNX-i, and image-processing and editing software, Capture NX-D, users are now able to view, process, and edit images with a single software.
NX Studio features a user interface inherited from ViewNX-i and Capture NX-D, while further achieving intuitive operation and a functional yet simple design with functions organized by workflow into three areas: data import, viewing, and editing.
Users of the new software are expected to achieve their desired output with detailed editing functions, such as picture control, white balance setting and exposure compensation for RAW data, as well as advanced sectional correction tools such as colour control points that allow adjustment of colours within a specified area and a retouch brush features for the removal of dust and scratches in the image.
The overall response speed for each function when using software such as image display has been improved, enabling the smoother processing of both skills and video.
Further, images edited with NX Studio can be transferred to NIKON IMAGE SPACE, Nikon's image sharing and storage service, while edited videos can be easily uploaded to YouTube. NX Studio will be updated continually, ensuring support for the viewing, processing, and editing of images
Support for ViewNX-i and Capture NX-D, including updates to the latest OS, as well as the addition of new functions, are not planned for the future. Users are recommended to update to NX Studio.
