From Ilford:
 
ILFORD INTRODUCES GALERIE SMOOTH HIGH GLOSS TO USA
 
Metallic media alternative promises exhibition standard prints for a wide range of professional applications
 
Marly, Switzerland & Avon, CT – December 12, 2011 – ILFORD (http://www.ilford.com), a leading developer and manufacturer of professional quality media for both inkjet printing and color photographic processes, today announced that it is furthering its commitment to developing contemporary inkjet media with the introduction of GALERIE SMOOTH HIGH GLOSS in the USA. The new film-based media promises exhibition standard prints to the growing number of photo professionals choosing to work with inkjet printing, including artists, photographers and museum exhibitors.
 
Available in the USA beginning January 2012, GALERIE SMOOTH HIGH GLOSS is a metallic media alternative offering enhanced definition and extended tonal range for the highest quality professional photo look. Developed by the team of ILFORD photo experts in Switzerland, the media features an instant dry, universally compatible layer for superior results with both dye and pigment printers. Created for a wide range of professional applications, GALERIE SMOOTH HIGH GLOSS is available in 8.5 x 11”, A4, A3+ and 24” roll formats.
 
ILFORD introduces GALERIE SMOOTH HIGH GLOSS as the photographic market continues to evolve from chemical photographic processes towards the use of inkjet media. This worldwide trend has brought with it the decline of products such as ILFOCHROME CLASSIC, which is to be discontinued following the deadline for final orders on 19 December 2011. ILFORD is pleased to recommend GALERIE SMOOTH HIGH GLOSS as an inkjet alternative to ILFOCHROME, with the media’s metallic surface offering comparable results.
 
“ILFORD has long been a technological leader in the print media industry, and with many of our users and labs adopting a purely digital workflow we are proud to possess the technological capabilities necessary to offer customers professional quality inkjet alternatives to traditional photographic media.” Says Jane Dixon, Director of Global Marketing at ILFORD. “Some of our customers may remember the previous incarnation of GALERIE SMOOTH HIGH GLOSS which was very popular with photography professionals, and we are now pleased to introduce it as an alternative to metallic media following modifications by our team of experts in Switzerland.”
 
GALERIE SMOOTH HIGH GLOSS joins the already diverse array of GALERIE products designed for use in the professional inkjet market place, including the traditional baryta fibre based media GALERIE GOLD FIBRE SILK, also favored amongst photographers wishing to explore inkjet alternatives to traditional media.

Nikon Capture NX 2.3.0 (USA) | (Europe) is now available for download.
 
Modifications that apply to both the Windows and Macintosh versions

  • Lens information is now displayed in the Metadata palette for images captured with the Nikon 1 V1 or Nikon 1 J1 using the Mount Adapter FT1 and a CPU lens.
  • Support for images captured with the Nikon 1 V1 and Nikon 1 J1 using the Mount Adapter FT1 has been added.
  • An Astro Noise Reduction option has been added to Noise Reduction in the Camera Settings portion of the Develop section in the Edit List palette. This option reduces the randomly spaced bright pixels that occur in images of stars captured with long exposures.
  • An Auto2 option has been added to New WB under White Balance in the Camera Settings portion of the Develop section in the Edit List palette. This option is available with RAW images taken with the COOLPIX P7100.
  • When white balance is changed to Auto2 and a settings file saved, a white balance setting of Recorded Value will be applied if the settings file is used on a RAW image that does not support the Auto2 white balance setting.
  • When Set Gray Point was selected from White Balance in the Camera Settings portion of the Develop section in the Edit List palette, and the image clicked to specify a portion to use as the gray point, the point selected was sometimes not accurately reflected in the resulting white balance if the image had first been rotated. This issue has been resolved.

 
Additional modifications to the Windows version

  • This software now operates as a native 64-bit application under the 64-bit versions of Windows 7 and Windows Vista.
  • An Embed Preview When Saving NEF/NRW item with Thumbnail and Preview and Thumbnail only options has been added to the General panel of the Preferences accessed from the Edit menu.
  • In addition, preview images can later be added to NEF/NRW files saved without embedding them using the new Update Preview option in the Browser palette context menu and File menu.
  • The default setting for the Use Image Cache option in the Cache Settings panel of the Preferences, accessed from the Edit menu, has been changed to off (not checked).
  • When Capture NX 2 Ver. 2.3.0 is installed with the Use Image Cache option enabled (checked) with the previous version of Capture NX 2, Use Image Cache will be disabled (unchecked) and cached data will be deleted.
  • An issue that resulted in inconsistent display of images in the Browser palette and images inside the folder selected in the Folders palette has been resolved.
  • When a batch process was run for images captured with simultaneous RAW + JPEG recording by selecting Run Batch Process from the Batch menu with a new naming convention applied to the RAW and JPEG images, new files were not always created for the selected images. This issue has been resolved.
  • An issue that caused the Folders, Browser, and Metadata palettes to be shifted down when Windows was set to display the taskbar at the top of the desktop has been resolved.
  • When Set as Default Printer was applied to some printers with Windows, a Capture NX 2 stops working error message was displayed when Capture NX 2 was exited. This issue has been resolved.
  • When tone curves were edited using Adjust menu>Light>Levels & Curves, Adjust menu>Color>LCH, or Quick Fix in the Develop section of the Edit List palette, positions of anchor points changed unexpectedly. This issue has been resolved.
  • When the mouse cursor was positioned over the Set Black Point button in the Levels & Curves dialog, accessed via the Adjust menu>Light, to display an explanation of the feature, white point information was displayed. This issue has been resolved. (French version only)

 
Additional modifications to the Macintosh version

  • This software now operates as a native 64-bit application under Mac OS.
  • An Embed Preview When Saving NEF/NRW item with Thumbnail and Preview and Thumbnail only options has been added to the General panel of the Preferences accessed from the Capture NX 2 menu.
  • In addition, preview images can later be added to NEF/NRW files saved without embedding them using the new Update Preview option in the Browser palette context menu and File menu.
  • The default setting for the Use Image Cache option in the Cache Settings panel of the Preferences, accessed from the Capture NX 2 menu, has been changed to off (not checked).
  • When Capture NX 2 Ver. 2.3.0 is installed with the Use Image Cache option enabled (checked) with the previous version of Capture NX 2, Use Image Cache will be disabled (unchecked) and cached data will be deleted.
  • When the selection brush was used to edit an image with the image window displayed at a large size (1980 × 1080, 1512 × 1008, etc.), Capture NX 2 sometimes quit unexpected. This issue has been resolved.
