If you're using Nikon's View NX 2 software package to manage, browse, edit, and share your photos, it's time for an update. The company has released new versions for both the Windows and Macintosh platforms that aim to fix bugs, as well as adding support for the Nikon D7100 digital SLR.

For Windows users, Nikon notes one bug squashed in Nikon View NX 2.7.4. Images shot with the AF-S NIKKOR 800mm f/5.6E FL ED VR lens will now, in most cases, be listed with the corrent lens model displayed. (However, you'll still see the lens identified as a G-type model, should you record a movie with your DSLR, or a still image with a Nikon 1-series camera plus FT-1 mount adapter.

Nikon's D7100 digital SLR is newly-supported by View NX 2.

For the Macintosh folks, there's also just one bug fixed, but it's one more photographers are likely to encounter. With the previous release, images saved as JPEGs using Capture NX 2 v2.3.0 or v2.3.1 couldn't be opened with recent View NX versions. This is now corrected in View NX v2.7.4.
