Nikon Capture NX-D
« on: July 16, 2014, 05:10 PM »
Nikon just released its new photo editing software, Capture NX-D. Unlike previous versions which cost hundreds of dollars, this one is free. Anyone brave enough to try version 1.0.0?

Interesting to note that, according to Nikon, Canada now has three official languages: French, English and Chinese.

Just to point out that Apple Aperture, which originally cost hundreds of dollars, is discontinued and will be replaced by Apple's new free photo editing software. And, it looks like Adobe's new subscription version of Lightroom will run forever in a limited mode after the subscription ends. The perpetual licence version Lightroom, which used to cost hundreds of dollars, can occasionally be bought on sale for $100.

Low-priced software may be nice but is free software a good thing?

Considering what a disaster the change from Final Cut Pro 7 to Final Cut Pro X was, I wouldn't hold my breath for the new Apple image software.  With Final Cut, imagine if Adobe beefed up Photoshop elements, then discontinued regular Photoshop, and you get the idea.
