I have just purchased a Nikon d7100 only to find it isnt supported by my Elements 9. Following suggestions from the internet I have downloaded the trial version of Elements 11 plus ACR 7.4 dng converter unfortunately I am still unable to transfer Raw/NEF files from my camera, its accepts jpeg's though. Also I can open ACR with 7.1 version but I dont know how to use the 7.4 converter with it. Can anyone advise as I am becoming very frustrated! Can I use Silver Efex Pro 2 with trial version? If so, how?
Thanks Garry Smith
Nothing you can do. For now Elements is stuck at 7.1. You'll have to wait until it catches up or indeed use the DNG converter standalone. For questions regarding that, ask on the DNG forum. Conversely, questions on third-party plug-ins are best asked on the vendors' forums.
