About Picture Control Utility 2

Realize your artistic vision by using Picture Control Utility 2 to create and manage custom Picture Controls while previewing their effects on your own NEF/NRW (RAW) photos. Custom Picture Controls can be exported to a memory card and loaded into a camera or imported from the camera to Picture Control Utility 2. Imported Picture Controls can be further edited and used in ViewNX-i, ViewNX 2, and Capture NX-D. Not only can Picture Control Utility 2 be launched from and used with ViewNX-i, ViewNX 2, and Capture NX-D, it can be installed and used as a stand-alone application. It also supports custom Picture Controls files with the extension “NP2”, which can be used with cameras that support the new Picture Control system, and files with the “NCP” extension that can be used with all compatible cameras.
