BOOST YOUR BATCH PROCESSING
George Cairns shows you how Nikon Capture NX2 can save you time
same time thanks to Capture NX2’s brilliant Batch menu commands.
When shooting a series of shots in the same lighting conditions (and using identical camera settings), you may end up with a collection of images that all have similar problems with colour and tone (such as our slightly under-exposed start images). This means that you can apply the same tonal and colour adjustments to every shot in the series and they’ll look consistently better. You could open each image in turn and manually tweak its colours and tones, but this would be rather time consuming, and as they all require the same work, you’ll rapidly get fed up of repeating your actions.
Capture NX2 enables you to make manual adjustments to a photograph that is representative of your batch of similar images. You can then save the adjustments and apply them to a folder full of similar photographs in one click. You can also save the fixed batch of photos as JPEG copies, so that they’re ready to be printed or posted online. As a bonus your original RAW files will still be accessible, so you can restore any of your adjusted shots to their in-camera captured settings you need to.
