"Upgraded ViewNX to 1.5.0 - pictures have a green color cast?"


Temecula, US
          

Hi

I have just upgraded ViewNX to version 1.5.0 and now when I open it all my pictures have a green color cast over them. NX2 is fine.

Can anyone help me? Has anyone else had the same problem?

Thanks for any help

Robert

Hi Robert,

Downloaded the up grade last week on both of my computers one XP, one Vista, and processed about 150 images from soccer on Sunday-no problems-no color issues. That's really strange-maybe something got skewed during the download-why not try to download again and if there's no improvement call Nikon. I can't think of any adjustments in the
software that could cause that.

Bob

I recently moved from Vista Ultimate x64 to Windows 7 Pro x64. Under Vista I had no problems with ViewNX 1.4 or it's Nikon online update to 1.5.

I installed ViewNX 1.5 on Windows 7 from a downloaded executable and too was hit with this 'green cast' issue. It seemed to be more prevalent on displayed JPG images than NEFs or TIFs. I searched on Google and found many comments in a post on Flickr that this was an issue for many people and that moving back to version 1.4 fixed the issue.

After removing 1.5 and installing 1.4, things are much better but not perfect. Now only JPGs thumbnails were 'green'. I uninstalled again, used the registry cleaner in CCleaner, rebooted, and reinstalled 1.4 and now the issues are gone.

While the 1.4 full install/Nikon update to 1.5 might be the trick to avoiding this instead of a full 1.5 executable install, I'm going to wait on any Nikon online updates until I hear that the issue has been resolved.

Well I deleted 1.5 from the computer and installed 1.4 and all is fine! I hope that they bring out a 1.5.? to get rid of that green cast!

It happened to me as well on Win7. Photos were hazy with a blue color cast. I reverted to 1.3 and reinstalled 1.5.0 again.
Works just fine now.

It happened to me too. Green cast on mine. Nikon is working on a fix and has a workaround that didn't work for me. It has to do with changing the Windows color profile to a Nikon one. I am going to try reverting to an older version as did another person on this thread.

I guess I won't try that because I can't find the older version of Viewnx.

In addition ViewNX 1.5.0 is apparently not compatible with Mac OS 10.6.2. Menus are totally corrupted. Even though not specifically stated on the download page at nikonusa, I was told yesterday by tech support that 10.6.x is not supported by ViewNX.
NX2 seems to be OK though

Works fine over here under 10.6.2, but I had
to do a lot of cyber-gymnastics to get it to work properly.

Way old news: Nikon have been saying that since the first problem
with ViewNX was reported, which was about 15 minutes after the
1.40 full version and update was published. We've been fighting this
since August.

Nikon has posted a fix for this recently - basically changing the monitor color profile:

http://support.nikontech.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/16620/p/42%2C463/sort/4%2C2/r_id/116678

For some reason, this problem only affected 2 of the 4 PCs on which I installed 1.50. (All running Windows 7)

Win 7 Pro x64, ViewNX 1.5.0. My pictures had a blue cast. Recently purchased SpyderElite 3.0. After calibrating monitor pictures render OK. Nikon support site shows fixes for Vista and XP, but not for Win 7. Since I don't know enough about Windows Color Management I will just leave things as they are for now. Wish I could find a good tutorial about this subject.
Cheers

Canepezzo,

I just followed the vista instructions and deviated for windows 7. Mine is corrected now.

Windows 7 instructions
Open "Control Panel"
Under "Appearance and Personalization",
Click "Screen Resolution",
Click "Advanced settings"
A new window will popup, click the Color Management tab and then the color management button.
The Color Management window will open. Click the Advanced tab, click the "Change system defaults..." button.
The Color Management - System Defaults window will open.
Click the Add... button.
Locate the "Nicon WinMonitor 4.0.0.3000" profile, file name NKMonitor_Win.icm. Click it and then click OK.
That should bring you back to the Color Management -System Defaults window. Click the Nicon WinMonitor 4.0.0.3000 and then click the "Set as Default Profile" button.
You can now click close and close all of the open windows.
This is what corrected my display.
