Photoshop CS takes .NEF files. You may have to get an update for the latest RAW import filters. :thumbsup:

Photoshop 7 requires an add-on from Adobe itself. They were selling it. :confused:

Nikon Capture is your other alternative. However, you need to register it.
*Hint* you can find some numbers off the internet.... :D

you dont edit the files, per se. you use a RAW convertor software, then apply some settings, then export the RAW + settings into a TIFF or JPEG :)

You just need to download Nikon View 6. It will install a NEF filter in photoshop cs or 7. From there, you can just use that filter to open your NEF files.

i feel the the raw intepretation by PS CS is extremely poor. The resolution is lower than jpeg, and the colours are simply awful. When I shoot I convert it through nikon view 6 and save as jpeg, then use PS to edit it. But that sorts of defeats the purpose since I cant do adjustments to the originals..... maybe its time to be evil and look for those numbers.

I tried doing the batch converting using Nikon Capture Editor to convert from NEF to JPG. The results is small JPG files and the process is very slow. WOnder if they are of equv quality when save as JPG directly from the camera.

Heard that Irfanview can also read NEF. Anyone have tried to batch convert to JPG?
