Adobe Adds RAW (.NEF) Support for Nikon D7100

Adobe Photoshop CS6April 3, 2013, Adobe releases updates for its popular image editing programs Adobe Lightroom 4 and Adobe Photoshop CS6 to support the latest digital cameras including the Nikon D7100. The updated versions of Lightroom 4.4 and Adobe Photoshop with Adobe Camera Raw 7.4 are now able to open and edit Nikon Electronic Format (.NEF) RAW camera files taken with the Nikon D7100 DSLR.

The updates also include new lens profile data for recently released lenses including the Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/4G ED VR, SIGMA 35mm F1.4 DG HSM for Nikon mount and TAMRON SP 70-200mm F/2.8 Di VC and TAMRON SP 90mm F/2.8 Di MACRO for Nikon mount.

    I have Adobe Photoshop CS5 and Windows 7 on my computer. I recently purchased a Nikon D7100 and have been unable to open my NEF files in Camera raw. I downloaded DNG Converter 7_4 and 8_1 with no success on opening the files. Am I missing a step? Thank you for any help.

      Did you first open the NEF file and save as Adobe RAW using the DNG converter?

      If you can’t open the NEF using the DNG converter, did you use Nikon Transfer to copy the NEF files? It may have corrupted them. Try using this tool to fix them.
