Video is so popular these days, I am compelled to do it myself.  In the following very short (<50 second) video toturial, I demonstrate a simple way of creating a digital “negative” image by using the curve adjustment in Capture NX2 Quick Fix tool. This can also be done using a Levels & Curves or LCH adjustment step.

I have uploaded the videos to both Vimeo and Youtube. The standard quality videos embedded here may not be very good. If that’s the case please follow the links to view HD version.

Basically the curve adjustment shown in the video flips the highlights and shadows around as shown in the following histograms.
