Photo elements 12 can not open raw files from my new NIKON d7500
PSE12 can no longer be updated but you could convert to DNG
DNG Converter is free. You can batch convert a whole folder of NEF images into Adobe raw (DNG) without any loss of quality and the dng files will be backward compatible with your PSE12 software.
