Key Features

Easily browse, edit and share images and movies with the free all-in-one ViewNX 2 Software.
ViewNX 2 provides a range of easy-to-use, enjoyable features that the ordinary software supplied with a PC's OS cannot offer. In addition to basic data importing and browsing, ViewNX 2 incorporates various frequently used adjust menus and tools such as resize, brightness control, crop and straighten, as well as RAW processing functions and movie-editing features that are equivalent to those found in digital SLRs. Smoother cooperation with Nikon's exclusive image storage and sharing site, Nikon Image Space, is also made possible. This all-in-one browsing/editing software package supplied with Nikon digital cameras will let more photographers fully enjoy digital images, more easily.
Enhanced image-editing functions

Good So Far Have the software running Win 7/64 on Pavilion dv6-3150 Intel i5. The software is stable and easy to use. I just took a still from an HD Video and placed it in Adobe InDesign, output to Kindle with no problem, 1/25/13. I'll report back from time to time as I do more. January 25, 2013
Super picture viewer Hi Super image viewer and fast program. Very easy to use and the program is integrated with Nikon's Capture NX2 and "My picture town" Really good. sincerely The happy ameteur photographer with his Nikon V1. PNOR October 15, 2012
Great Initial Workflow Program for RAW Files. I find ViewNX 2 a very stable and useful first step program when dealing with a full shoot of RAW files. It lets me view and do basic editing on the entire album, and integrates seamlessly with Photoshop 6 for photos requiring more advanced work. The Album View layout is also very well done. June 24, 2012
Great for previewing and tagging photographs. Great product that has always been in my workflow. The only thing on my wish list is. that it is not so slow and a memory pig. view nx was a lot faster. June 4, 2012
Huge jump from ViewNX Older version seemed a little clunky, and I could never register PS so that I could open directly from program. ViewNX 2 has solved that issue, plus is a lot faster than any MS or Adobe product. Controls are excellent and well-placed, gives complete metadata and graphics info. It's really loaded with all the right stuff for professionals - I can't believe it's free! Thanks, Nikon, for continued great support of your products. December 2, 2011

Selecting pictures to import from Nikon 600

Was this helpful?helpful0unhelpful0
Suppose I have 100 pictures 50 old and 50 taken 5 minutes ago.

View NX2 marks all pictures for import. Takes too long so I uncheck all and then try to check the new 50 using Shift Click on the first and last. Does not work, so I have to click each one - also takes too long.
Is there another way to select a group or is Nikon going to fix this weakness?

Answer: 
Yes you can shift click to select images you want, you can also ctrl click to select individual images. You can also left click hold and drag over images to select them, once selected they should be highlighted, then just click inside the tick box to add or remove the tick. If this doesnt work I would suggest uninstalling and reinstall making sure you have the latest version installed

Answer: 
I asked the same question after being very frustrated that the program would not install from the CD that came with my P-510. Seeing the suggestion to download and install from the Nikon site, I went ahead and did that and it seems to have worked. I am very disappointed that Nikon can't seem to supply software that will install properly with their expensive cameras. Their web support is also not very good. If it weren't for my long time investment in Nikon products I would seriously be looking to swtich to Canon. This will likely be the last Nikon I ever purchase!

Problems loading up/downloading with ViewNX2

I'm having awful problems loading ViewNX2 to use with Windows XP and a Nikon S8200. When I connect the camera, it doesn't prompt me to download the photos until I then DISCONNECT the camera, and even when the window does come up, it doesn't give me ANY options as to which programme to use to download. It did briefly let me view the photos that recorded to its internal memory, but it read all the photos on the memory card as MPEGs (despite them being in JPEG format - I know cos I downloaded some via a card reader and they all came up as JPEGs ok), but now it won't read them at all - it doesn't even let me access the camera's internal memory or memory card. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling and rebooting the PC, but it's basically totally unusable. HUGELY frustrating - I've never had this problem with camera software before. Can't even download using any other software.

Answer: 
Thanks Nikonstaff. But I don't understand why it reformatted them all as MPEGs? When I finally downloaded using a card reader, it read them all as JPEGs. I hadn't reset anything from the factory settings - this was the first time I connected up to download, with about 250 photos.

This still doesn't explain why I can't access the photos on the camera's internal memory, or now, why the software won't even recognise the camera is connected at all, even though the camera switches on when I connect up using the lead, so power at least is getting through.

I'm not a professional photographer - I'm a serious holiday/leisure photographer and also take around 500+ record photos a month for my work.

(BTW - the link on the notification e-mails you sent me to "see the answer" doesn't work...)

Answer: 
I've downloaded the software off the Nikon site now, and onto a different computer (Windows XP again), but still having the same problem. The software won't even begin to communicate with the camera, it doesn't even recognise the camera is connected to the PC and prompt for a download. The pix on the camera's internal memory is now totally inaccessible - I can't even view it (I briefly could the first time I connected the camera to the PC, but not any more). I eventually downloaded the pix on the memory card using a card reader into the USB port - but surely I shouldn't have to do this with a brand new camera? I'm beginning to think it's the camera rather than the software? This is so frustrating - never had this problem with all the Canon's I've owned. I love using the S8200, but it's not much use if it won't speak to the PC.

Answer: 
first of all, have you downloaded the most recent version of ViewNX2 from your country's nikon website? it is continuously being updated to address new camera releases, as well as to implement bug fixes and add new features.

it also seems that you may be aided by the use of a card reader. i shoot at least 25,000 photos a year with my nikons, and i never connect the camera directly to my computers. indeed, many systems now -- desktops and laptops both -- come equipped with internal SD card slots. while not every provides easy access to the card slot, most of them are at least not too hard to access. especially if your computer supports the new fast USB 3.0 standard, it's a big improvement over the camera's data port.

Answer: 
MPEG formats use three types of compressed frames, organized in a group of pictures, or GOP, to achieve interframe compression. GOPs are defined by three factors: their pattern of I-, P-, and B-frames, their length, and whether the GOP is “open” or “closed”. Please reset the camera: MENU> SETUP> RESET ALL. Also, verify the settings that you have for Image Mode (see page # 71 of the user's manual) and make sure you are using an approved memory card for the COOLPIX S8200.

I just purchased a Nikon S3100 for my wife and see it comes with this software. I have two questions:

1. Can I use it to open RAW .nef files that I shoot with my old Coolpix 8700? I lost the original CD that came with the 8700 and cannot view the .nef files on my new desktop.

2. On your website, a number of low ratings came in from users due to problems with this software. Is their a new version that addresses these issues?

Thanks,

Answer: 
Yes, ViewNX 2 will work with you COOLPIX 8700 as well. Instll the software that came with your D3100, or click the link below, and then one of the links on the right for the download of ViewNX 2. (Top link is for Macs& PC's, bottom is for Windows only). This contains Nikon Transfer as well:

http://support.nikonusa.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/61#Anchor-1

I would recommend using memory card reader rather than the camera/USB cable connection. The card reader will be much faster trasnfer times.

While adjusting sharpness, shadow preservation, and brightness in View NX2, I noticed that the JPG image compression was increased reducing the file size. The file size went from 10MB to 3 or 4MB. I didn't notice the compression change til I had edited a lot of images. I had to revert to backups and lost a lot of editing time. Where is the preference setting to leave the image quality at the highest setting when editing images? My camera is a D7000 with images taken at the highest fine image quality.

Answer: 
We all have this problem with jpeg files and ViewNX. I don't know why Nikon don't want to add such a basic feature in their program. Yes, shoot raw, but what if I don't want to shoot raw? Some of us don't need to shoot raw, but we sometimes need a basic corrections and ViewNX is able to do everything except saving edited jpeg files! It's rediculous, really!

I know if I will save jpeg file over an over again, I will lose some details and quality, but from 10MB to 3MB in one single save after a slight brightness change or just a tiny crop... That is really funny.

So I don't think that your answer about cumulative saves with jpeg files has some point. Just a slight change to jpeg file that has 10MB should not have such an impact on saved file (with just one save it is reduced dramatically - more than three times!). It is just unbelievable that such a basic thing hasn't been fixed for a really long time. Just one slider in options menu to choose default save compression of saved jpeg files and everything would be perfect. The same slider that we can find when we click Export button...

Answer: 
JPEG compression quality loss if cumulative, meaning that if you open a JPEG image and edit it (crop, change color, resize, etc.) and resave it as a JPEG mo image quality will be lost. It is a good idea not to repeatedly save as a JPEG. If you're going to edit your pictures a lot it would be a good idea that you start shooting in NEF (RAW). There is more opportunity to edit the file later
