Then you should have the application Adobe Camera Raw. Do a "SPOTLIGHT" search for it on your drive and try it out, it should work fine for any type of RAW file, as long as you have kept it up to date. But the NEF format goes quite a ways back.

Re: RAW files

Hey, don't mention it I'm giving back for what I have received from this great group of folks.

I have found a better organized or more cooperative group than this on the web.

MY BAD

I thought that I had typed, "I haven't found a better organized or more cooperative group than this on the web."

I know about ACR and i use it, but mostly i don't use that ACR to open my RAW files, as i said, i prefer to use DPP first, and with my Hasselblad files, i have to convert it to DNG first if i want to open it in Photoshop until they updated a camera raw that can open H3D files, but now i upgraded to H4D i can't open the files at all with CS4 until i convert first to DNG, will check CS5.

Re: RAW files

Thanx for the feedback guys. I found that if I open the NEF or any other non-traditional file in Aperture, the program takes care of it automatically, converting it to jpeg.

Re: RAW files

JPEG does eat up fine detail in your files and it doesn't even say "Boneappetit".

Re: RAW files

Boneappetit, Aperture allows you to save your files as TIF and PSD. TIF is a universal file format which has a lossless compression option. JPEG uses a lossy compression algorithm. Everytime you modify and save a jpg the quality of your image degrades.

Re: RAW files

No need to apologize. User guides and Camera manufacturers seem to go out of their way to NOT inform people about JPEGs.
