I have just purchased a Nikon D800 and I am unable to see the .NEF files within either Lightroom 3.6 or CS4. Can anyone help me? I have read on other forums that you need to install ACR6.7 but those users were all using newer versions of software. I have downloaded ACR 6.7 - are my programme versions compatible and will LR & Bridge pick up the new version automaticaaly or do I need to do anything? I am running Windows 7.
I'm not sure if this will make any difference but within my camera menu I chose NEF (RAW) recording to be Lossless Compressed.
ACR 6.7 can only be used with PS CS5. You will have to use one of the following options.
1. Use the latest Adobe DNG converter 6.7 to convert your .NEF files to dng (retain a copy of the .NEF's) then you can import into LR 3.6.
2. Consider upgrading to LR 4, you can download the LR 4.1 RC2 and run for the trial period untill the Final LR 4.1 is released.
Ah, thank you. I am currently using your first solution and it is working a treat. I think I will update LR to make life easier in the future.
I can't see the RAW files in Bridge either? Currently using release 4. Will I need to upgrade that too?
