"Saving an adjustment in Capture NX2"

Hi

I am trying to save a single adjustment which I've made to an image. I want to be able to take this adjustment and apply it to a batch of images using the batch tool.

In the screen shot I've attached this is Step 4.



I am just trying to work out what the significance of the All Selected tick box is? I've ticked it. Does this mean that the adjustment will be applied to the whole image? If I didn't tick it would that make a difference?

If I am saving an adjustment which has been partially applied and I tick the box I assume that means the same area would be effected if I apply the adjustment to another image? But; in that case what would it do if the new image was a different size and proportions?

I just wonder if anyone could clarify these points for me?

Many thanks

--Justin Wyllie

I think you are correct - leaving the selection box unchecked would apply that step globally to the entire image.

Either way, you can apply the steps as a batch and then go back and fine tune the selection or adjustments.

I'm not sure how much you have used the batch processing function, but it can be a little slow since you have to not only apply the edits but also to render a new embedded JPEG. Once you launch the batch, have a cup or coffee or something to give it time to process.

Following on from Eric.....

When you are done with processing, empty your cache at a suitable point.
I recently found 30Gb in there. :0

Thanks Eric.

Yes. I did a test. If you don't select the 'partially selected' box the setting is saved and applied to the whole image. If you chose a partial selection it looks to me (from a very rough test so no guarantees) that it applies the selection area at the same position top/left from the source image to the destination one.

Finally then, if your source adjustment is applied to the whole image (e.g. a general white balance change) then it doesn't in fact matter if you tick the 'selection' box or not. Either way it will apply it to the whole of the destination image.

I tend to use it to do my final sharpening on a set of images. However now I beginning to see its potential I think I will use it more.
