George Cairns shows you how to export your images to a range of destinations
Export your photos to a range of digital destinations using Capture NX-D
Our old analogue film prints are most likely sitting on a shelf, hidden between the pages of dusty photo albums. While the physical photos in our albums may only be viewed by a handful of people, our digitally shared shots can be enjoyed by people all round the world. In these digital days we’re more likely to share our photographs in a digital format, via online platforms such as Facebook or Twitter. We may also carry our favourite shots around in our phones so that we can show them to friends and family while out and about.
While Capture NX-D is designed to help us share shots electronically, we can also use it to produce physical prints that will fit a particular picture frame’s size and shape. You can also batch-edit a collection of shots to turn large processed RAW files into easier-to-share, lower-res JPEGs (see our step-by-step guide, right).
Once you’ve tweaked your photographs’ colours and tones in Capture NX-D you can send them to View NX-i (another free, downloadable Nikon app). This app acts as a portal to various sharing sites such as a Facebook gallery. You can send an edited photo to View NX-i directly from within Capture NX-D, courtesy of a dedicated View NX-i button.
On this spread (and in our accompanying video lesson) we’ll show you how to use Capture NX-D and its View NX-i sidekick to share your processed pictures in a variety of physical and digital ways so that they can be enjoyed by more people.
