Print or share your photos fast
Export your processed pictures in a range of formats
You can access the Print window by clicking on this icon in either Capture NX-D or View NX-i. See Annotation 2 for more detail.
Use this dropdown menu to choose the type of print that you prefer. You can then print an image using the Full Page option, create an Index Print or print a selection of images at particular sizes, such as 5x7. This last option is especially handy if you need the shots to fit into a particular picture frame (or you need a print of a loved one to pop into your wallet).
Unless you need to save ink, always set Print Priority to Quality. If possible, set your printer’s settings to acknowledge the type of paper being used. Highquality photo paper will produce better-looking prints, while cheap paper will absorb more of the ink and create muddy-looking prints.
ROTATE TO FIT
To make the best use of your sheet of paper (and get your portrait-oriented shots printing as large as possible within the chosen page layout), tick the Rotate to Fit box. If you tick the Crop Images To Fit option then you’ll lose any border colour and get your shots to fill the chosen photo size (such as 5x7).
Click here to send a shot to your Mac or PC’s mail app. A dropdown menu enables you to resize a large file to a smaller and quicker-to-send size.
Click here to launch the Upload window. Here you can resize and export your movies to a range of online destinations including Nikon’s free online sharing site, Nikon Image Space. You can also upload your photos to one of your Facebook Albums, though you’ll need to log in to Facebook first.
Click here to access the Convert Files box. As well as exporting and resizing your selected photos you can arrange your files in a range of Contact Sheet grids and even include selected metadata as photo captions. You can add your name as an overlay on each image and modify the font, size and colour of the overlay. The contact sheet can then be outputted at various sizes to be emailed to friends or clients.
Click here to create a slideshow movie that showcases a collection of stills. In the window that opens, you will be able to tweak the duration of each image in the slideshow and choose a transition such as wipe or mix. Your images will then be taken into View NX-Movie Editor, where you can fine-tune various slideshow properties, and output the sideshow to a particular movie size so it’s playable on your chosen platform.
