ViewNX is a program that allows you to manage images, providing functions for storing, browsing, editing and sharing photos as well as movies. ViewNX incorporates various frequently used adjust menus and tools such as resize, brightness control, crop and straighten, as well as RAW processing functions.Though presented by its producer as a viewer for photos taken with Nikon digital cameras, ViewNX is much more than just that.
It is a complex image management application that also allows editing, converting, correcting, transferring and sharing the pictures.

I especially like the fact that it includes a large variety of advanced image editing functions. ViewNX lets you easily resize, crop or rotate images, as well as adjust their colors or other parameters such as the brightness level, the exposure compensation level or the white balance. It also allows converting between image file formats, including from RAW NEF files to JPEG or TIFF. Batch converting or resizing multiple photos at once is also possible. There’s also a handy geotagging option that lets you easily add GPS coordinates to image files. Despite the fact that these are just a few of the many features that this tool provides, it still manages to offer a neat and intuitive interface. Browsing, viewing, editing or converting the photos can be done with ease due to this clear interface, regardless of whether the user is a professional or a novice.

Since it is actually a Nikon product, ViewNX includes the Nikon Transfer utility which allows the easy transfer of photos between Nikon cameras and the computer.

Furthermore, ViewNX is not only a tool to manage still images. It even allows editing movies. It can be used to trim videos or to join video clips into one single larger movie.

In an end note, ViewNX is a powerful and complex image management application great not only to those who own a Nikon camera, but to anyone in need of editing and converting image files.


  • Many advanced image editing functions.
  • Neat and well-organized interface.
  • Supports geotagging the images.
  • Includes a video editing tool.
  • Allows converting between image file formats.


  • The installation might take quite a while on older computers.

Publisher's description

ViewNX is an easy tool to view JPEG, TIFF and NEF files, and edit or convert NEF/RAW files. Integrates with Capture NX to adjust white balance and exposure in the browser. It's an all-in-one image browsing and editing software application for both still images and movies. It is a fun and easy-to-use application offering enhanced operation.

In addition to image browsing function, ViewNX allows users to adjust image size and brightness, as well as offering new editing functions that enable cropping and image straightening for RAW-, TIFF- and JPEG-format images. Naturally, it also enables adjustment of such aspects as white balance and exposure compensation for RAW images captured with Nikon digital cameras. Smooth collaboration with my Picturetown, Nikon's image storage and sharing service, has also been achieved. What’s more, Nikon Transfer 2 has been incorporated into ViewNX for transferring images to a computer, and functions for editing movies, including one that allows you to trim movie footage, have also been included.

    A very good and useful picture manager. Pay attention to which regional version you download as any update must match this.
