ease with the software in under ten minutes. It addresses the core need to organise,
edit and use the many images that digital camera owners create, presenting them
in a series of easy to access Collections that free the user from the need to

which add darkroom and optical filter effects as well as image enhancements
that are only possible by digital manipulation.

already offers a limited set of Nik Multimedia filters as a free-of-charge bonus
to customers who register their products for the Fotoshare service.
With the announcement of Picture Project, Nikon has signalled an intention
to expand its' software portfolio, delivering a compelling mix of value-enhancing
complimentary software with every Nikon digital product supported by a catalogue
of higher-function products.
