Hi! My camera Nikon makes raw files as *.nef. And I'd like to use Photoshop to work up them. But in common version of Photoshop there is no possibility to work with NEF files. If I try to open file as a RAW one program do not allow to do it and shows en error. So, the question is - Is there any way to work with NEF in Photoshop?
If anybody know - please share information) Thanks in advance..
Google the error message. You probably have an older version of Photoshop and a new camera. Googling the error message should do one of two things (1) Lead you to a patch upgrade you need to download and install or (2) You may need to get a newer version of Photoshop.
The advice given by Wisconsinart is good advice. You will need to check if your Nikon camera model is supported by Adobe and if it is, the version of Photoshop required to enable you to process the NEF files. If it is supported, then from memory CS4 is the minimum version required to enable you be able to process NEF (RAW) files but you will need to download the plugin or software patch from the Adobe site to do so.
Yes please do check it out to confirm. I am speaking from my own personal experience when I had THE same problem with CS2 & my Nikon D90 camera and when I was unable to process the NEF files until I upgraded to CS4.

Dewers, thank you for your advice. As I have no opportunity to upgreate PS yet, I'd be glad to use this convertor. But the program that was attached to the camera was View NX2 - and it can convert file from NEF into JPEG or into TIFF. Could you, please, tell wat particular converter do you mean?
Quoted Message: Adobe has a free RAW to DNG converter that can be downloaded from Adobe:For Windowshttp://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/product.jsp?product=106&platform=WindowsFor MAC:http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/product.jsp?platform=Macintosh&product=106This will allow you to convert your NEF files to DNG and then you edit your photos in your CS2 or allow for importation in older versions of Lightroom
