    How about reading the manual of CaptureNX? The basic workflow will be described there. For further questions about RAW processing please have a look into Digital Darkroom here. Also, do read up about image formats. JPG as a image format with lossy compression should not be used for editing, but only for the final export step.

    Properly updated CaptureNX2 (not CaptureNX) will read NEF file directly and allow post processing to be performed before saving the file in edited NEF format or JPEG format.

    Properly updated Photoshop CS4 will read NEF file will read NEf file directly and allow post processing before saving file into PSD format or JPEG format.

    Stay with NEF or other lossless image formats as long as possible. You can export to TIFF when switching to PS, then come back as TIFF and finish the export into JPG.
