Hello, I purchased a copy of Elements 4.0 a while back and decided I liked it quite a bit. I've been using it for a while now. I've begun experimenting with RAW images on my D50 and so when I open these images at home on my PC, it opens up in I think Adobe Camera Raw. (I didn't bother to install the Nikon software)

I've since decided that I want to learn photoshop. I purchased the CS2 for Digital Photographers by Scott Kelby and have been playing with CS2 on one of the digital imaging PC's we have at work. Herein lies the problem.

I can't open RAW images at work using CS2, but I can open them at home using Elements. What gives? Another feature I enjoy about elements more than photoshop is the ability to pre-select the aspect ratio for the image. (8x10, 5x7 etc)


Can anybody shed any light on this for me? Thanks in advance.

All you need to do is install a newer Adobe Camera Raw plugin if you're unable to open your .nef files. The newest plugin is 3.4 (that's the one I'd download and install). Your D50 was supported beginning with 3.2.

Windows:

Macintosh:

Follow the directions you'll find on the download page for the correct folder to install it in after you select a download link.

As for your size questions, you can crop to any size you want using PSCS2. I'm not in Windows right now (I'm running LInux right this minute). So, I can't go into PSCS2 and do a screen print. But, if you search in HELP for crop, it might show you how to select the desired size (and they have some sizes already configured you can select from, too).

If not, here is a page I found using a quick Google search that explains basic cropping and shows how to specify a size.
