    I can attest to the fact that Capture NX2 works with Maverick

    I love Nik Color Efex for Capture NX2… I can’t leave without Tonal Contrast and White Neutralizer

      I mean I can’t live 🙂

      Since Google has acquired Nik, everybody who ever purchased one of the Nik plugins can get the latest version of the complete suite for free. They also provide standalone versions that do not require a host application.

    • umeshrw

      True that. Tonal contrast is the best make up tool ever.

  • Brandrop

    Mavericks. Plural.

    No love for the Linux people…. albeit it keeps businesses and Internet running 🙁

    • NoMeJodas

      Unfortunately no. I was considering moving to Linux from OS X few months ago but the lack of support from Adobe made me change my mind. I didn’t felt like wanting to lern new tools (GIMP, AfterShot Pro etc) for my photography and definitely didn’t want to run LR and PS in a virtual machine.

      • groucher

        If you know Photo$hop, you also know GIMP – they are very similar.

        • NoMeJodas

          Thanks! I didn’t know that. I’ll give GIMP a try then.

          Still don’t understand why commercial photography software makers are refusing to support traditional Unix. It’s been long time since Unix and Unix-like OSes (e.g. Linux and the BSDs) were only for geeks and professionals. Adobe even had versions of many of its programs like PS available for Solaris and IRIX long time ago ( ). It would be really great if they offered versions of their current software releases for at least Linux.

    nikon REALLY needs to be pro-active; sign up as an apple developer; test BEFORE major OS upgrades are released. either that, or design web standard product that’s accessible to all OS’s. JMO.

    I have a small issue since the installation of Mavericks.
    I tend du let Camera Control Pro 2 run in the background an have ViewNX 2 as the main application on the screen to let the transfered pictures directly shown in ViewNX2. For a while (ca. 2-3min.) the photos are transfered to but after a while it seems that the application Camera Control Pro 2 is parked and after tab switching the pictures are transfered afterwards to ViewNX2 (using it as a Photobooth). The files are not immedietly transfered to ViewNX2 as before without Mavericks (I always have the newest OS installed).

    Is there any possibility to let Camera Control Pro 2 always active although running it in the background as the interface application between my Nikon D90 and ViewNX2? I think it has something to do with the new memory management of Mavericks. I tried to search for setting in the activity monitor but without success.

    Many thanks in advance for hints and hopefully solutions.

    With kind regards,

      I think I found the solution for the problem. It’s because of the new feature App Nap. Just open the finder, click on your app with a right-click and then information. Check the box “deactivate App Nap”. That should now work. I’ll try it the days and let you know.
