CS4 no longer recognizes NEF files

Is CS4 now obsolete?  If there is something I need to do to reinstall an updater or some such thing--easy peasy step by steps instructions would be appreciated for this granny--nothing that refers to roots (do you mean carrots?).  Thanks.  I hate to think a program that cost over a $1000 has gone the way of the dodo.

    Have you changed camera?  If so what model?

    With CS4 you can only update to adobe camera raw 5.x.  THat will work with the D90 but for the D7000 you need ACR 6.3.  For that you would need CS5 or above.

     

    Table says you need 3.3 Lightroom for the D7000.  So it should work in LR4. 

     

    Would assume CS4 and Lightroom 4 are different products and have no connection, but could be wrong.

     

    I don't use Lightroom so perhaps some else can help there.

    The way I read this is you will have to use LR to read the new camera raw images.  Adjust them there and save to format you can read in CS4, like a psd, tiff, or jpeg.

    CS4 won't read tiff files?  What error do you get?
