    .NEF is a Camera Raw file format.  Nikon updates the file for each camera. We would need to know your version of Lightroom and your Camera model before we can tell you if your versions match and how to make sure they do.

    Nikon D300S has already been supported from the first LR3 version on.

    I suggest to update to the latest LR3 release which is LR 3.7

    The latest version is 3.6. How do you get 3.7?

    3.6 is the latest version and the last version according to the Adobe blog. http://blogs.adobe.com/lightroomjournal/2012/03/raw-support-in-lightro om-and-camera-raw.html

    After reading the discussions on the web page, it appears that I am not the only person who is less than pleased with my software product.  Got any suggestions that a reasonable person would live with.  I am about to change my mind on being a loyal Adobe customer.  Nikon’s products work, and that is better than Adobe.

    Ooops, that was a typo.

    Of course, you guys are right and 3.6 is the latest 3.x version.

    Sorry for that.

    If you have any version of Lightroom 3.x it should read your 300S file. I just tested with a sample file and it worked fine here on 3.6

    I generaly shoot .nef only.  It does not recognize that format when it recognizes the camera.

    I shoot NEF only with a D300 which is quite similar to the D300s and I never had any problems importing these images.

    You may want to make a sample file of yours available through some kind a file sharing service so we can test on our systems.

    Hi BeepFreeze,

    My Nikon D300s is perfectly recognized by LR, from the 3beta on, 2 years ago. I shoot only NEF.

     

    What error message do you see that makes you say it would not be?

    Maybe I should mention that I use a card reader, rather than plugging the camera to the laptop.

    It will be necessary for you to use the " render a copy with Lightroom adjustments" and send that copy to Photoshop CS4.  Photoshop, even the current version, does not actually edit the raw image.  By the time the image is open in Photoshop, it is no longer raw image data.  And even the current version must save an image edited in Photoshop to a new file such as TIF or PSD.

     

    However, since you are using an older version of Photoshop, and since ACR is used in the conversion process from Lightroom to Photoshop, all of the new features in ACR cannot be read and interpreted.  That is why it would be necessary for you to render the copy and send that to Photoshop.

    LR3

    Same problem, but...

     

    I've downloaded and installed the 3.6 upgrade at least 4 times and when I click on the "about" it still says i'm on version 3.0, and if I check for updates it still says I need the 3.6.

     

    I've also downloaded the DNGConverter7.1 twice. "About" informs me that I have Camera raw 6.1.

    None of the .NEF files from my NIKON D7000  will import into LR3.

    Cheese,

     

    Are you on a Mac? If so, installing an update does not remove the previous version. You probably need to change the version referenced in the Dock.

    Yes, a mac with snow leopard 10.6.8

    Tried your suggestion, still launches version 3.0 AFTER a "successful" 3.6 upgrade install.

     

    I'm stumped.

    Did you really change the reference in the Dock to 3.6?

    In the past, I've noticed that sometimes some of my pictures from my SD card are not presented as an option to be uploaded. Yesterday I did a family session and took some pics in auto format and some in manual. I notice that the ones in manual, which were somehow just taken in RGB, are not showing up for me import.  Can't figure out why that is...??? Help!

    Hi,

    I've got a Nikon D600 and always shoot in NEF RAW format and before I've been able to use the Lightroom with my files on a diferent computer which broke down... Now I'm on a new computer with Lightroom 3, which is

    Lightroom version: 3.6 [795620]

    Operating system: Windows 7 Home Premium Edition

    Version: 6.1 [7601] and now it says it won't recognise the files and I can't import at all or view... What's going on... I'm using sme serial number that i used in my previous instalation...

    Also I tried updating Lighroom but it says I've got the current version.

    The D600 is a brand new camera and is supported with version 4.2 (partially) and will be fully supported with version 4.3.
