Using Nikon Capture NX2 With Adobe Bridge CS4

Frequent visitors to this site know that I’m a big fan of Adobe Bridge CS4. However, if you’re a Nikon user who shoots raw, then you might prefer using Nikon Capture NX for your raw conversions, rather than Adobe Camera Raw. Capture NX is a great program, and, because it’s made by Nikon, does far better with some Nikon raw files than Camera Raw does. However, the workflow tools in NX and NX2 don’t compare to Bridge CS4, but fortunately, there’s an easy way to integrate the two programs.

Capture NX

If you’ve played at all with Nikon Capture NX, you already know that it has some of the best editing tools on the market (if you haven’t played with it, a free demo version is available here). But, if you’re used to the workflow management and output features of Apple’s iPhoto, you may be reluctant to give up iPhoto’s powerful library features to switch to a Finder-based workflow driven by the Capture NX file browser. Fortunately, there’s a very easy way to integrate the two programs. With an integrated iPhoto/NX workflow, you can import and organize your images in iPhoto, but edit them using Capture NX’s superior raw conversion options and localized editing tools.

With the Fisheye Lens edit, you can create cropped, rectilinear images with a single click.
