We often get asked about the best free editing software for your pictures and movies. Well, we may be biased but we think our ViewNX 2 software, launched last year, is one of the best free packages out there!
Bundled with Nikon cameras and available as a free download, ViewNX 2 not only lets you import your photos and videos onto a PC or laptop and browse through them but also has some impressive editing functions. These include resize, brightness control, crop and straighten, as well as RAW processing functions and movie-editing features that are equivalent to those found in digital SLRs.
Don’t just take our word on how useful it is. Richard Peters, who has used ViewNX “for years” to help him get the most out of his wildlife shots. You can take a look here to see what else he has to say about the software but his advice is “go download it and check it out for yourself!”
ViewNX 2 is also fully integrated with my Picturetown, Nikon’s photo sharing and storage service, so once you‘ve finished perfecting your photos and movies, you can securely store up to 2GB of images online, create your own slide shows, add in music and much more – all for free. You can go here to sign up to my Picturetown – if you do this by the end of March, you’re in with a chance of winning a D3100!
So why not give ViewNX 2 a go? Share your photos with us on Flickr and if you use my Picturetown, you’re three clicks away from putting them up on Facebook and sharing with all your friends.
