    Photoshop CS5 will not open raw files from Nikon D810. What do I need?

    franm1827386

      Photoshop CS5 (bought in 2011) will not open raw files from Nikon D810 (bought in 2014). Is there a patch?  Is there something I can do?

          Thank camera requires Camera Raw 8.6 which isn't compatible with Photoshop CS5. But you can download DNG converter 8.6 or newer and create digital negative (DNG) copies that will be compatible with Photoshop CS5.

              I've downloaded the dng converter, but where is it?  A separate program?

                Yes, it is a whole new program.  Look in your download folder for the .exe file, then double click it to install the program.  Once it is installed, an icon appears in your desk top, called Adobe DNG Converter.  I opened the program (by double clicking it). Then I followed the numbers down the dialogue box, 1) browse to the folder where your original RAW files are, 2) select the folder where you want the negs to go., etc, etc.  I chose Convert (or Extract, I can't remember), and the files appeared in the folder I selected as .dng files. I opened Photoshop, and Bridge, then when I double clicked the .dng files, they opened, and I was able to Photoshop them. Hope this helps.  Fran
