"NX2 Color Shift"


DUNCANNON, US
          

I have used Capture NX & NX2 for over three years.

I am hoping someone can help me with a problem that has recently made itself apparent. I have not knowingly adjusted NX2 in anyway for the past six months - it has worked fine until a few days ago.

The image looks great in the "browser". The image looses a large percentage of its red color while rendering in the "editor". Without making any "edits", it prints with all of the reds seen in the "browser". Please see the two attached "screen prints". This happens with .nef files & .jpg files. It happens with "sample photos" attached to various software applications and .nef files from both of my Nikon D200s. I do not use any other software for photo editing so I can not check it out that way. The photo, when used as a "screen background" looks normal. The only time I see a color shift is when the file is moved into the NX2 "editor".

Your thoughts on this frustrating problem will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you, Dick

Richard the "Browser" is not color managed but the editor is. What color space are you using in the camera and NX2? are they the same or is your color space in NX2 different? I am going to guess that you have set sRGB in camera and printer and perhaps Adobe RGB as your NX2 color space or something like Pro Photo. That would explain the color shift you see and the fact that they still print like what you see in the browser. Perhaps someone else has a better idea.

What computer are you using? More specifically, have you made any changes to your video settings?

I have been fighting with a color management problem that NX2 has when my Lenovo W500 ThinkPad is in high performance video mode. If it is in power saving mode, the color management is correct. I have spent lots of time and energy proving to both Nikon and Nik that there is a real problem there but don't have a fix after nearly 9 months.

If you've made any recent changes to your video settings, that could be a possible problem source.
