When trying to open a file in PS6 (13.0.1 32 & 64) I can't see NEF thumbnails (Nikon D800). Files will open but I need to see thumbnails to be able to selct the image easily. ACR v 126.96.36.199 is installed and I have checked that this is the latest version. I am able to see NEF thumbnail images in Lightroom 4.
Help / advice please as I am new to PS6. Thanks
PS is using an operating-system-level function while you’re in File / Open. You either need to be using an Adobe product such as Bridge that does use ACR to render thumbnails, or you need to update your operating-system with a codec that understands Nikon RAW formats.
You can try the Microsoft Codec Pack:
Or you can pay for the Fast Image Viewer Codec Pack that understands how to get at the thumbnails of many different image formats, including Adobe PSDs:
