I have just purchased a Nikon D3100, taken some snaps and tried to view them using Adobe Bridge.
Unfortunately I only get the NEF icon and when I try to open in Photoshop the file is not recognised.
I have attempted to follow numerous discussions and help topics to be able to view my photos but none have seemed to have worked and now Im sure I have files/folders in the wrong place or deleted!!! It is incredibly fustrating!!!
I am an amateur running CS4 and would really appreciate if someone could help me view my photos?
I believe your camera was released after Photoshop CS5, which means you will need that version of Photoshop for direct support of your raw files. However, if you download the current version of the DNG converter you can convert your NEF to DNG files. Then you will be able to open the raw image data with your version of Photoshop/ACR.
