I took some pictures in RAW format on my Nikon d70s. I then tried to upload them to my computer and it said it could not do that. But I was able to copy the file from the Micro drive onto my computer.

I opened them into the Adobe Bridge like the directions said. I then double clicked to open the RAW converter (per directions) and this is the message I received (could not complete your request because it is not the right type of document.)

Can anyone help me figure out what I am doing wrong? Or what might be happening so I can fix this problem? I upladed the most recent update for Camera Raw....but that did not help at all.



I have some cool shots to do.

:sad: help PLEASE!!!

I find some photograph progs work ok with raw nef files from the nikon

here's a shareware prog that works ok with the d80 nef files

http://www.sharewareconnection.com/d...m-sharecon.htm

and infraview with plugins seems to work ok with raw nef files

there are software trials of bibble that takes raw nef files

there may be other progs shareware or freeware that others have found ok

The thing about Bridge is that it is basically just a file browser. If it doesn't recognize the file type, or if the extension is being used by something else, it doesn't know to open it with Photoshop. Try right clicking on the file in Bridge and selecting "Open in Camera Raw", or select "Open With" and see if Photoshop is there.

If neither of those work, try opening the file directly in Photoshop by selecting File-Open, or by dragging and dropping the file into the Photoshop window.

When you downloaded and opened the new Camera Raw update, did you remember to move the old .8bf file to another folder? This is the most common cause of problems with these updates. I don't have the full instructions handy, but the Adobe download site should have them. As I recall, the new Camera RAw needs to be extracted to the (Plugins ?) folder, and the old needs to be moved to another folder. ( I just created one called old raw, and dump the oblolete versions in there. )

Hokiegirl, i think all you need to do is download the appropriate Adobe plugin for the Nikon D70s.

Every diffent make of camera creates its own unique RAW file, unlike jpegs etc, RAW files are not standardised, as a result it's very difficult for a piece of software to be able to understand all the different types of RAW files.

To overcome this you need to install the appropriate plugin for photoshop which will enable the software to read your RAW file, in your case Nikon RAW of (NEF)

The plugin that caters for the nikon d70s can be downloaded hear:

This is the latest version that has been updated for the nikon d40, but it also supports the d70s.

Hope this helps!

I've used Picasa to open raw files.
