Quickly repeat changes
Rod Lawton shows how to copy, paste and even save adjustments
Balance preset would have been better than the Auto White Balance setting you used, or that you should have used the Vivid Picture Control rather than Standard.
At the top of the Edit panel is an Adjustments menu which you can use to copy any adjustments applied to the current image and then paste them on to any number of others, all in a single action.
What’s more, these adjustments can be undone, removed or replaced. This is possible because of Capture NX-D’s non-destructive editing approach. The adjustments you make are not applied directly to your image files but are stored instead as processing instructions in ‘sidecar’ metadata files – see last month’s Capture NX-D tutorial for a more detailed explanation.
This opens up all sorts of possibilities. For example, you might shoot in colour but want both black-and-white and colour versions later on. To do this, you could apply a black-and-white adjustment to your photos and use the Convert Files option to produce black-and-white JPEG versions – and then apply a colour adjustment and produce a series of full-colour JPEGs. All the while your original NEF files remain unaltered, so you can try out as many adjustments as you like.
