U Point Wins EISA “Best Innovation” Award

The patented U Point image-editing technology, featured in Nikon’s new Capture NX software, has won received the European Imaging and Sound Association’s “Best Innovation” award for 2006/2007, according to Nik Software, Inc., the developer.

Use of the technology is simple and oriented towards both the professional photographer and the home consumer. With unprecedented precision, U Point allows users to simply point and edit with a unique system, designed and engineered by Nik Software developers, known as “Control Points.”

The hassles of selections and masking are taken away with U Point’s ability to adjust precise, individual areas of the picture through innovative tools controlling hue, color tone, brightness, and contrast.
