    Despite all of the criticism I really like Capture NX2, so I would like to thank you for putting together a very comprehensive tutorial. I have been using the software since its inception. Despite obtaining some good results over the years, I never truly believed that I was using the software to its fullest potential. In watching your tutorial, I have confirmed my suspicions. I realize now that I am only using approximately 30 to 40 percent of the software’s features. I intentionally put off processing some images from a recent trip because wanted to incorporate some of the technics that I learned from your video. Watching your video has not only given me a more complete understanding of the software, but a better understanding of the steps that I need to take in making the decisions of how to process my images. Thank you! —- Yes, please post my feedback
