Create a JPEG
You can convert your edited NEF files into JPEGs in moments
Edit your image
Let’s say we want to crop this image into a square shape. We can use Capture NX-D’s Crop tool for this, selecting the 6:6 Aspect Ratio from the Crop panel’s drop-down menu. (This corresponds to the old 6x6cm square shape of medium-format film.)
Convert to JPEG
Now we click the Convert Files button. There are four settings to note: Save As (the new file name and location), the File type and quality (we’ll go for JPEG, Good Quality), the Output Settings (if you want to change the resolution) and the Image Size (we’re reducing it to 1920 pixels across).
The converted image might be fine as it is once you’ve converted it, or you may want to do further post-production work in a program like Photoshop using tools that Capture NX-D doesn’t have. Here, we’ve used Photoshop to adjust the shadows and highlights and darken the sky.
