Bridge CS4 won't open .NEF file in camera raw

Nov 5, 2010 7:37 AM

It says because photoshop CS4 does not recognize this type of file. I've opened plenty of Nikon .NEF files in Bridge. The difference is this is a D90 file and I've been getting D80 files. Is there a patch for newer camera models?

    You need ACR V. 4.6,or 5.1 so CS4 should be fine.  Make sure you have only one version of ACR in the correct folder.

     

    Also, make sure that you have formated the card with the D90 camera and not  the D80 camera.

    You can set an option to open jpeg and tiff in camera raw (edit/camera raw preferences).

     

    On a Mac I don't know which directory it should be in.  To see what is there open Help/about plugins/camera raw  in Photoshop and see what version is listed.  There should be only one.

    Camera Raw preferences: Bridge: menu Adobe Bridge/ Camera Raw preferences.

    Inhere you can set the wished behavior for tiff. By default it shows tiffs

    only in ACR when you choose to do so with right mouse click menu (open in

    Camera Raw) or if the Tiff had earlier been altered in ACR, then it opens

    automatically in ACR unless you choose not to do so.
