I just purchased D5200 and now Photoshop cs5 wont open nef or raw photos from D5200. I am told I must purchase or upgrade to Photoshop cs6. Is there a better way than spending the $200 upgrade?

Hi Jennie,

The D5200 requires Camera Raw 7.3 plug-in and CS5 only supports up to Camera Raw 6.7.

You can open the NEF files using Nikon View NX2 (Free) and save the image as a TIFF. Then adjust the TIFF in CS5.

Best Regards,
Marty

I ran into a similar problem with a D5100 and an ancient copy of Photoshop CS3. I actually found the best solution for me was to buy Lightroom 4 for handling the RAW files. It was $120, so it's cheaper than the Photoshop upgrade.
