Save time on the edits that you make all of the time by setting up user-defined presets
Some photographers prefer to shoot multiple photos of the same subject to help them capture the perfect moment, especially with constantly changing subjects such as people. However, this gives you multiple photographs to process in Capture NX-D. Fortunately you can spend time tweaking one shot’s colours and exposure to perfection and then copy the adjustments to apply again to other shots in the series without having to spend lots of time processing each picture manually.
This copy-and-paste process is a great time-saving technique for a series of similar shots, but the adjustments saved in your PC’s clipboard are only stored there temporarily. Fortunately, Capture NX-D’s Adjustments menu and panel boast more permanent ways to store and apply useful adjustments that will benefit any photo.
Even if you’re working on a variety of shots with different exposure settings, you may still need to perform some universal adjustments. Post-production sharpening will give any image more punch, for example. If you sell your work as stock then you may need to apply a lens profile correction for geometric distortion, chromatic aberration and vignetted edges. You can also create a userdefined adjustment preset to apply common fixes to any image, which will save you lots of editing time in the long run. Here we explain the difference between the various settings in the Adjustments panel and show you how to create a user-defined preset that you can apply to any shot in a click.
