I keep trying to open Camera Raw in Elements 13 and keep getting an error message "If you are attempting to open a raw file from a digital camera, make sure you have the latest Camera Raw Update Installed via Help>updates." I went there and it says that I'm updated. I shoot a Nikon D3200 which Adobe says it is supported. I have downloaded NEF files, from my camera, into NX2 then try to open them with Camera Raw in Elements 13. Nothing. What am I doing wrong?
Elements 13 should be able to open Raw files from the D3200 out of the box. No updates required.
Try eliminating NX2 from your workflow.
Use a card reader or connect the camera direct to the computer. Some versions of Nikon software have been known to corrupt Raw files so they cannot be read by Adobe software.
