 Post subject: Camera Raw X_X
PostPosted: Sat Oct 24, 2009 5:44 pm 
Hello all,
I installed PS CS3 and tried all the camera raw plugin versions possible ... but i still can't open raw files ... I'm using a PC, windows xp, ps cs3 extended,
Can anyone tell me wich version of camera raw plugin to use with this? ... i tried 4.0, 4.1, 4.3, 4.4.1, 4.6 with no success... As far as i understood they should all work on CS3
Thanks a lot

Paul

ACR5.5 is the first version to support the D3000, but as you've already noticed it is not compatible with CS3. So your choices include upgrading to CS4, using the Adobe DNG converter as an intermediate format, or using a totally different RAW converter.

You can of course use Nikon's ViewNX (free) to convert your raw files, and do some basic editing on them. A good workflow would be to correct the whitebalance and maybe picture styles in viewNX, then export to 16-bit tiff's, and then do your thing in photoshop :)

Thanks,
Nikon's View NX is ok but there's not much editing you can do there, I thikn i'll try cs4 with acr5.5 instead

Thanks a lot for the answer

If you are after an editor that is similar to camera raw, consider Nikon's Capture NX 2. It will be cheaper than CS4, is much more powerful than camera raw and squeezes more quality out of Nikon's own RAW files. There is a trial available if you are unsure.
