Nikon Releases Major Upgrade to Capture NX Software
Nikon (http://www.nikondigital.com) today released an upgrade to its highly acclaimed Capture NX software. Capture NX version 1.1 boasts several new improvements including increased performance, full support for Intel-based Mac OS X computers, and optimization for Microsoft’s Windows Vista operating system.
In addition to these advancements Nikon has made several usability updates based on software testing and customer feedback. Capture NX 1.1 now sports a simpler user interface that has added improvements such as resizable palettes for histograms and curves & levels adjustments.
Capture NX 1.1 is designed specifically for photographers, providing a unique and user-friendly interface featuring tools that serve photographers needs, without the complexity and clutter of other image editing applications. The software can be used with JPEG and TIFF format images from any source, and its patented U Point™ technology offers photographers a dramatically simplified way to edit their pictures by enabling them to enhance specific areas of a picture selectively, without the use of masks, selections, or layers. Capture NX 1.1 also works with Nikon’s RAW (NEF) format images, and inherits Nikon’s robust RAW processing capabilities for the highest quality results from NEF files.
Capture NX 1.1 is available for download immediately and can be purchased for an estimated selling price of $149.95* as a full boxed version or downloadable key. A 30-day trial version is available, for new users, and can be downloaded at http://www.nikonusa.com, in the Software Download section. Current users of Capture NX will be also able to download an update to version 1.1 at no additional cost. A special limited-time upgrade price of $89.95 will be offered to current owners of Nikon Capture 4 software in the U.S. market. This upgrade will only be available online at http://www.nikonmall.com/captureupgrade/ for registered Nikon Capture 4 owners and will be limited to one upgrade per Nikon Capture 4 product key. The upgrade will require certain customer verification of ownership. Customers who have not already registered their version of Capture 4 will receive instructions to do so at the site.
