Here’s how easy it is to use other image editing programs alongside Capture NX-D
Choose your editor
We’ve made some adjustments to this photo in Capture NX-D and now we want to open it up in Photoshop Elements to make some more detailed changes with adjustment layers and masks. Capture NX-D will create a TIFF version in the Pictures folder and launch Elements.
16-bit to 8-bit
By default, Capture NX-D creates 16-bit TIFF files for best quality, but not all image editors can work with 16-bit images. Elements can, but not all features will be enabled. To work with layers, first you need to convert the image to eight bits using the Image > Mode menu.
Save your image
We’ve made our changes in Elements and now we could save it back to the Pictures folder where Capture NX-D created it, but we can alternatively save it back to the folder containing the original file. It will then appear in the Capture NX-D browser alongside the original.
