Recommended Posts

im getting an error saying cannot open that kind of file or something like that.. im just using the normal open file command in the menu..

is there anything specifc i have to do to open a raw file

the raw files are named with an extension .NEF if that makes it any easier to help

Download NX view.

Convert it to PSD/TIFF/JPEG

Then open in photoshop.

 

Or, there should be a program that comes with the camera.

It's own software has an image editor, use that to convert it.

Chances are indeed that your raw format is newer than your ACR. Try going through Lightroom or C1 though, as the quality and control considerably better :).

I had to download a plug-in before photoshop would read the raw files from my 550D. Just let photoshop do an automatic update and it should download it.

i got a copy of CS5 and that seems to open them when i transfer the files using my nikon software.

if i try to open them straight from the camera using the cs5 it wont work lol.
