 Post subject: Help with PP
PostPosted: Fri Jul 22, 2011 9:41 am 
Okay, I've bitten the bullet and bought my first DSLR a Nikon D3100 and I already own PS Elements 8. During a recent holiday I decided to shoot in raw + jpeg (I took heaps of memory cards with me). Now I can't import my raw files to elements, only the jpeg.

I googled and found my elements raw plug in is 5.5.0.97, according to Adobe my D3100 requires 6.3 but elements 8 only supports 6.2. Will I need to upgrade to 9 or can anyone offer any advice. I really want to try some PP on raw.

Yup, Adobe does that to you. Options do include either upgrading PSE version, or using another raw converter.

Does PS Elements 8 support DNG? You could find some other utility to convert your raw files to DNG.

Will check if I can convert to DNG. Think hubby will have a fit if I spend any more on photography at the moment.

You should have a CD included with your camera which has Nikon View NX on it. This will enable you to convert your raw files into JPEGS after some basic adjustments.
Alternatively you can download Fast Stone image viewer, a free programme which has a raw converter which recognises NEF files and will allow a greater range of adjustments than Nikon View.
