2.0 out of 5 stars Needlessly hard to use, May 28, 2008
This review is from: The Photographer's Guide to Capture NX (eBook) (CD-ROM)
I have tried Capture NX on my own but needed this book to do it. The book has the facts but the work to use it, would be better spent with a paper copy. Here are some issues.

1. Using an ebook to learn a graphics software program is way too hard. I spend all my time switching between programs (Capture and then the guide),and will now try my laptop if I can install the book on it.

2. I have NX 1.3 which is not supported. Instead of rewritting the book, they include another ebook with the changes, so you must try the book, find what doen't work and then open eBook2.

3. Despite some other reviews, I find you must be more familiar with NX than I am, to understand the book. Once I figure some thing out then rereading is easy.

4. I recommend Foxit or something other than Adobe Reader to read this. It is easy to lose your place and no bookmarks are allowed in Reader. When you close the Reader it loses your place. Adobe Acrobat does ok for $300 or Foxit that I found free. It also allows marking enough to track your place. There's probably better ones too.

I agree with you 100%. I have this program and I was so eager to learn NX that I went to my printer store and had it printed out on good paper in color and binded into a book and it cost me $275. I am embarrassed to admit that but there is no way to learn NX by looking at a CD and then charting your way through. Even though it was expensive, by making it into a book, I eventually learned how to use NX.
