HOW IT WORKS lens cor­rec­tion panel

You’ve a lot of op­tions for cor­rect­ing shots avail­able – here’s what they all do

NPhoto - - Nikopedia -

What to look for

This un­cor­rected im­age suf­fers from bar­rel dis­tor­tion and vi­gnetting.

Cor­rec­tion tools

Click this but­ton to open the Cam­era and Lens Cor­rec­tions panel.

Pal­ette con­trol

Dock the panel to the side­bar or float it over your im­age us­ing this menu


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

Dis­tor­tion Con­trol

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.

Vi­gnette Con­trol

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.
