| p.1 #9 · Nik Software And Capture NX |
With all due respect, did you say Capture NX2 IS NOT a good software? I wonder if you know how to work the NEF files with it!
I am going to give you my opinion. I am convinced it is the BEST software you can use with NEF files. Its sharpening machine is far superior to anything I have used to edit RAW files and Nik put some wonderful tweaks in it, like color control just to mention one of them, that make the life of the person working with the software less complicated.
I will say it is still somewhat slow,...Show more →
It's good you have your opinion. And you should....
The reason I don't particularly like Capture NX 2 is because I think Adobe, for example, is way better at image processing algorithms and so their products are faster, optimized, don't crash (at least as often as NX/NX2) and overall Adobe is able to produce better quality software. If you like Capture NX2 and you think it produces better images, by all means go ahead and use it. I still think that it's not a good software. To make it more clear, just compare it to other products. The GUI isn't even intuitively designed. Adobe, Apple, Microsoft have all cognitive scientists that specialize in Human Computer Interaction (HCI) to make software as intuitive as possible. At first I didn't know how to use the damn software. The image processing slowness, and fact it decrypts/encrypts white balance information makes me want to stay away from it. There are much better products out there William and you should try them out...
