HOW IT WORKS lens correction panel
You’ve a lot of options for correcting shots available – here’s what they all do
What to look for
This uncorrected image suffers from barrel distortion and vignetting.

You can use this menu to swap between your current settings and those applied to the file originally
Color Moiré Reduction
This counters any moiré or ‘interference’ effects you might see in fine patterns. This is more likely with newer Nikon D-SLRs like the D7100 and D810, which have no anti-aliasing filters in front of the sensor.
Image Dust Off
Capture NX-D offers the same Dust Off system as previous Nikon software. You take a Dust Off reference image with your camera, which records the location of any dust spots, and Capture NX-D can then automatically retouch spots on subsequent photos.
Lateral Color Aberration
This is the most common type of chromatic aberration (colour fringing) and happens when the lens doesn’t line up the different colour wavelengths in the image – it’s most obvious near the edges of the frame and around object outlines.
Axial Color Aberration
This happens when the lens doesn’t focus different colours at exactly the same point. This produces softer colour fringes which you sometimes see around defocused objects
Every shot you take contains information about the lens, and if it’s a Nikon lens, Capture NX-D can automatically apply a correction profile to fix distortion. If the picture was taken with a non-Nikon lens, this box will be greyed out.
Capture NX-D can automatically correct vignetting with Nikon lenses, but this control also appears to work for non-Nikon lenses, though you may need to adjust the slider manually.
If you’ve used a Nikon 10.5mm or 16mm fisheye lens, this will correct the fisheye effect to produce straight lines.
