Days ago I bought a Nikon D3300 and started shooting in RAW format. I thought that I was going to be avaible to import my photos directly to Lightroom, but it seems like I was wrong. I googled and read some articles and decided to convert my .NEF files to .DNG to import them. I downloaded the latest version of DNG Converter for Mac (DNGConverter_9_6.dmg) but I couldn't select any of my photos. I attached a screenshot where you can see I'm using the DNG Converter and trying to select the photos i want to convert.
this is because you cannot pick the single images to convert; instead, you have to select the folder containing them.
BTW, Nikon D3300 is supported since Lightroom 5.4; which version are you using?
Yes. In the DNG converter you need to simply select the FOLDER containing the images. If you open that folder then the converter will not see any images to convert. You can use the DNG converter to download the images from your camera converting them in the process, and then putting the resulting DNG's in the desired folder on your hard drive.
