Smile Raw files nef and nrw

Hello,
I have been using Elements 8 for a short while. I can open NEF files from my D300S in ACR. I have just bought a walk around camera a Nikon P7100 and the files are NRW. My version of ACR IS 5.5 will I be able to open both file types. If I have to update the ACR can someone tell me which version I need for NEF and NRW.

I am not a techy so I need simple instructions please.

Thanks in advance for any help.
Nick

Hi Nick,

The Nikon Coolpix P7100 wasn't supported in Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) until ACR 6.5. Unfortunately, PSE8 can not use ACR 6.5. If you want to open the RAW files, you would have to update to PSE9 or PSE10 (the latest version). If you aren't ready to do that, you can download and install the free DNG Converter from Adobe. That will allow you to convert your camera's native raw files into a more universal .dng format. You should then be able to open those .dng files with the ACR version you have in PSE8. You can get the DNG Converter here for Windows:

http://www.adobe.com/support/downloa...jsp?ftpID=5258

And here for MAC:

http://www.adobe.com/support/downloa...jsp?ftpID=5257

The instructions for installing and using the DNG converter are found in the Readme file, here:

http://www.adobe.com/special/photosh...ter_ReadMe.pdf

The way it works, in a nutshell, is that you download the raw files from the camera into a folder on your computer. Then, you open the DNG Converter (it's a standalone program) and direct it to the folder where the raw files reside. You'll be given an option of what destination folder you want the converted raw files to go to. Once converted to .dng files, you can then open them in the PSE8's ACR dialog for raw conversion as usual.

Let us know if you need more help.

NRW Raw files

Many thanks Julie.

Your instructions are clear for me to undersand and apply.

Will there be any quality loss in converting the NRW to a DNG ?

Regards - Nick

You're welcome, Nick. No you shouldn't have any loss of quality at all. Good luck.....
