Nikon will be releasing the official version (ver. 1.0) of Capture NX-D, its new RAW image development and adjustment software application, for free download beginning July 15, 2014

SINGAPORE – Nikon Singapore Pte. Ltd. is pleased to announce that it will release the official version (ver. 1.0) of Capture NX-D, a new development and adjustment software application for RAW images captured with a Nikon digital camera, for free download beginning July 15, 2014.

Capture NX-D is a software application developed to allow users to enjoy full-scale development of RAW images with simple operations. It enables high-quality photofinishing of images captured in RAW format by Nikon digital SLR cameras, Nikon 1 advanced cameras with interchangeable lenses, and COOLPIX compact cameras that support this capability. The application will be available for free download to provide Nikon camera owners an easy and convenient way to develop RAW images.

The official version of this application, which will incorporate ideas and requests from beta-version users include user interface improvements and the ways in which adjustments are applied, for example, to white balance. Support for RAW images captured with the new Nikon D810 digital SLR camera has also been added. The improved Picture Control system, when working with Capture NX-D, allows for direct ajustments be made on images captured with the D810 and earlier Nikon cameras.

In response to popular request, plans are in place to effectively update software functions for better image processing and operation including the addition of an automatic retouch brush.
