  2. Hello Ben,
    I have no doubt this course is as good as your previous ones on
    However, I was wondering if NX2 was really worth investing time, considering that I already work with LR4 and also use sometimes Capture One 6.
    I really like the way Capture One processes raw files, but LR well-integrated with PS workflow and cataloging are keys to me.
    According to your experience, in which topics does NX2 improve on LR4 and C1 ? My main concerns are, by priority order : quality of raw processing, speed of workflow, metadata management.
    Just in case it may be relevant, I work with D700 and D800 cameras.
    Many thx for your wise advices.

  4. Hi Antoine,

    You’re right to hesitate. If you already have a workflow you like, I’d stick with it. NX is not a great workflow tool. What’s really great about it are its Control Point tools, but you can add those to Lightroom using ink’s Viveza plug-in. Well worth the money!

  6. Dear Ben,

    I enjoyrd your Lynda.Com nx tutorial and have your book ordered.
    I live by printing and use Lightroom 4 for printing. How can I get my edited file out of NX 2 into LR so I can print them in LR.

    Thank you,
    Bob Kuprion
