1 Add A GRID

Browse to lens_s­tart.NEF im­age in the Fold­ers win­dow. Go to Im­age>Show Grid; this helps you spot con­verg­ing ver­ti­cals caused by per­spec­ti­val dis­tor­tion and curved lines caused by geo­met­ric dis­tor­tion. Go to Win­dow>Birds Eye. Click the Edit panel’s Cam­era and Lens Cor­rec­tions icon.

2 Ba nish barr elling

In the Cam­era and Lens Con­trol panel, set the Auto Dis­tor­tion Con­trol drop-down menu to On. Tog­gle Auto Dis­tor­tion Con­trol box on and off to com­pare the orig­i­nal photo with the cor­rected one. Cap­ture NX-D uses lens pro­file data to eval­u­ate and coun­ter­act geo­met­ric dis­tor­tion.

3 Clob­ber fri ngi ng

Type a value of 300% into the Bird’s-Eye View to mag­nify the im­age. Drag in­side the Bird’s-Eye View’s rec­tan­gle to dis­play the area shown above. Tog­gle the Lat­eral Color Aber­ra­tion box off and on. This hides the pur­ple and green colour fringes that are cling­ing to the edges of the church.

4 Re­duce vig net­ting

Dou­ble-click on the im­age to zoom out and re­veal the full shot. Your photo’s edges may not be evenly lit due to vi­gnetting. Tick the Cam­era and Lens Con­trol panel’s Vignette Con­trol box. Drag the slider right to lighten the edges and cre­ate a more even ex­po­sure; a level of 160 suits this shot.
