I just bought a Nikon D7100 and shoot raw. When I try to open a NEF file in Elements 10, I get an error message saying it's the wrong file type.
Can I upgrade Elements 10 so that it will open the NEF files from the D7100? If not, will the newest version of Elements recognize and open these files?
Appreciate any assistance you can provide.
That last version of ACR listed on the downloads page for Elements 10 is 6.6.
I don't know if it supports later versions. Adobe doesn't exactly make it clear, these days. My guess is not. Anyone else?
Have you tried Help > Updates?
On the camera support page, it says you need ACR 7.4 for the D7100:
You can always use DNG Converter make DNG copies of your raw files, which will open in Elements 10. It's a bit of a hassle, but it's free.
Assuming you can't update, you'll need to upgrade to the latest Elements, which will support the D7100.
