Colour Control Points: Enhancements for hue, brightness and saturation are as simple as placing a Colour Control Point on your image, then adjusting the length of the sliders. For example, Colour Control Points are remarkably convenient for changing the colour of flowers for better effect against green surrounding foliage. Take a dull gray sky and add blue to change the mood of a captured scene.
Selection Control Points: Now you can selectively edit photographs without the need to manually outline or mask the area for editing. Simply place a Selection Control Point anywhere on the photograph then choose from almost any adjustment such as D-Lighting, Unsharp Mask or Noise Reduction, while limiting the “reach” of that adjustment to just the selected area.
Auto-Retouch Brush: Capture NX 2 adds an automatic retouch tool to its image editing toolbox allowing users to seamlessly remove blemishes, dust and other distracting elements from photographs while maintaining the integrity of the image.
Shadow/Highlight Adjustment: With just a simple slider adjustment you can easily open up shadows or recover blown-out highlights. Highlight recovery is most effective for RAW (NEF) files however it will work with JPEG and TIFF files as well.
