Nikon D7100 NEF Issues with APE11

Aug 22, 2013 3:59 PM

I have a Nikon D7100 and Adobe Photoshop Elements 11.  The problem is, the software doesn't recognize NEF files.  Doing some research, I downloaded the DNG converter but it doesn't recognize NEF files.  I tried updating the PSE11 software but I keep getting a "The update server is not responding......" "Error Code U41M1C212.  I looked for updates for the Camera Raw version.  My software has version 7.1. Aparently I need at least version 7.4 and that there is 8.0 or better available.  I can't find any version above 7.1.  I have no idea where it is.  I'm thinking this is likely an easy fix and that I'm simply missing the obvious.  I also have no idea why the DNG converter doesn't recognize the files as well.

 

I bought APE11 so I could work with RAW files.  One mistake I made was that I never used RAW files when I had the trial version.  I always used the JPEG files.

    What operating system are you using?

     

    If your on windows, see if this solves the update problem:

    If you have any money left, consider Lightroom.  It is easier and more fun for RAW images.

    Hi,

     

    For the D7100 you do indeed need ACR 7.4.

     

    Hopefully the advice given by R_Kelly above should help you to update your PSE 11.

     

    If you have downloaded/installed the latest DNG 8,1 converter, then that should recognize the NEF files. If not, please check that you are not using old Nikon software to import the images - this is known to cause the problem.

     

    Otherwise, the DNG works on folders - you should point it to the folder containing the images not a file.

     

    Good luck,

     

    Brian
