Overview

Capture NX 2 from Nikon is a powerful image-editing application that lets photographers work with digital photographs with more speed and efficiency than other software programs. Its underlying technology gives photographers the ability to make selective corrections to an image with just one click. "Real World Capture NX 2," written by digital photography expert Ben Long, takes photographers behind the scenes to see how this innovative program works. Along the way, Ben offers valuable tips and techniques for getting the most out of the software and digital cameras.

Novice and expert photographers alike will benefit from Capture NX 2. New users can make advanced image corrections without learning sophisticated masking techniques. Advanced users can perform the complex edits they are accustomed to making in other programs in fewer steps.

    Excellent Book for Capture NX2

    If you have a Nikon and mainly shoot RAW (NIF) files this book and program are and excellent combo. It teaches you very fast how to work your images and is easy to understand. Good for RAW-(NIF), TIFF and JPEGS.
    I would recommend it highly.

    Valuable for Nikon Cameras

    I was most pleased to find this in Barnes and Noble since Nikon software is the only software that truly captures digital imagery on Nikon cameras.
    The trick was to find this publication. I wish that Barnes and Noble would carry more of these specialized publicaitons. To review it at hand is far more practical than an online purchase. There was only one in Barnes and Noble and since I had a discount membership I jumped at the opportunity to get this publication. Everything is convered here in this publication for downloading, enhancing, etc. It remains at the top of my library selection; handy when I have shot over one hundred digital images and need them enhanced. Its just the right size, not a tome, not a software bible, as Goldy Locks would say: "Just the right size".

    And for me to the point --that is the pixel point.
