I love NX2 and hardly use Photoshop any more except for unusual stuff. But there are a number of features that I would like to see added to NX2 that would make it even more powerful and easier to use. Here are a few of my ideas and perhaps you have some to add. I know from listening to one of the podcasts that the NX team reads the posts here. so here goes:

1. An invert command- I often copy negatives to my D700 and when I import them into NX2 I have to manually invert the curve in Quickfix to turn the negative to a positive. This command could also have over uses like quickly inverting colors, in-versing a selection, etc. You get the idea.

2. Selective Exposure control- while we do have the ability to selectively change color,saturation, hue, contrast NX2 does not currently have the capability to selectively change exposure i.e. you can change exposure for the whole image but not a selection. This would be an extremely powerful feature and would eliminate the need to move two images set at different exposures into Photoshop to blend them.

3. Further improvements to the Auto Retouch Brush- I have learned to use the retouch brush to fix fairly large areas without resorting to a move to Photoshop and using the clone tool. I use small and frequent stroke movements to do this. It would be nice to either have a separate clone feature or a sub function to this tool as in general I think it is much better than Photoshops tool.

4. A copyright and signature tool. I have simulated this a time or two, but usually go to Photoshop just to add it to my photos.

5. A framing or stroke capability.

Well that is my list for now. Feel free to add to it.
