Hello, I'm new here. I have been a full time photographer for over 45 years. That may or may not mean anything because things change fast. Anyway about Capture NX2. Capture does some things that the other software Adobe and others does not do. It writes directly to the RAW file. Other software writes a sidecar file. This is good for me because I like everything including ratings, keywords, and editing in one file with the image. It's easier to manage. It also means that the file takes time to write and if you have several writing a once it may overload or appear to or hang the computer.
Especially on a large file. You can watch the indicator at the top of the image to see the updating icon. It is best to wait for that to quit to continue work.
It's slow sometimes. Once Capture has written to the raw file, View will not edit it. However if you edit the file first with View you can edit with Capture. You just can't go the other way. I do wish View and Capture played better together, but maybe they can't. Maybe they will later. I think this is super software for Nikon raw files it works on tiff and jpg files too. I am a NIK fan and use all their products. Capture NX does things quickly and easily that would be a lot of work in Photoshop.
