Select from one or both options below

Option 1 : Install appropriate Adobe Camera RAW (or ACR) into CS4 to read the NEF file
Option 2 : Install freeware Nikon ViewNX from Nikon and port the image from NEF file to CS4

Under Nikon ViewNX, select the intended NEF file and convert to TIFF or JPEG using the following menu command File > Convert Files... before opening the converted file with CS4

Thanks Squid! But since I converted the file to JPEG or TIFF, it's no longer consider as 'raw' image? Therefore, I could not make additional adjustments such as white balance, tint and etc?

Option 1 : Do colour adjustment using function given in "Quick Adjustment" tab in Nikon ViewNX before converting to TIFF or JPEG

Option 2: Convert to TIFF or JPEG and make necessary adjustment in CS4 using various techniques found in guide books for Photoshops

TIFF are the best files after RAW files, do not convert to JPG!!!!!!

just open TIFF files in photoshop and do your editing work.

Thanks for the help guys! :)
