Edi ting and

Here’s how easy it is to use other im­age edit­ing pro­grams along­side Cap­ture NX-D

NPhoto - - Over To You… -

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.
