    NEF RAW files from my Nikon D5300 will not open in Photoshop CS3

    Barb Lundberg

      Is there a plug-in or update I can download that will make it possible for my Photoshop CS3 to open NEF files in RAW.

      I noticed a similar discussion a couple of years ago and I followed the advice and as far as I can tell I have the most up-to-date version of my software, and the Camera Raw plug-in is Version


      I also have the same problem using CS5. Both versions say they cannot recognize the file type. Can I use a converter to make them a different kind of RAW file, but still a RAW format? I would prefer to simply be able to open them in Photoshop for editing.


      Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks.
