- Click [Edit] to switch the workspace.
The view mode changes to [Image Viewer], and the [Adjustments/Metadata] palette opens.
- Select the image to adjust.
You can display the Filmstrip or Photo Tray to select the image that you want to edit.

About correction of color aberration
ViewNX-i can correct color aberration caused by the lens. Color aberration is a phenomenon of color fringing or color shift that occurs when light of different wavelengths passes through the lens at different angles of refraction to the subject. There are axial color aberration and lateral color aberration.
- Axial color aberration is a phenomenon that causes a position shift of an image as a result of differences in light wavelength.
- For details on correcting axial color aberration, refer to "Correcting Axial Color Aberration".
- Lateral color aberration is a phenomenon that causes size discrepancies in a captured image. By lateral color aberration, color shift occurs on the side of an object that is positioned away from the center of the image.
- For details on correcting lateral color aberration, refer to "Correcting Lateral Color Aberration".
Adjusting Smart Photo Selector images
