Pics taken by D5000 in RAW format will not open either in Photoshop or Nikon Capture. I tried on two different computers. No problems with my NEF files from my D2X. Each program gives error message of file not compatible. Any one else having this problem? Any help would be appreciated.
As mentioned, you can use Nikon View NX, updated to version 1.3.0, to open the NEF and then use the "Open with" to transfer a TIFF image to Nikon Capture or PhotoShop.
Can you be more specific about which Nikon Capture and version you have. There is Nikon Capture, Nikon Capture NX, and Nikon Capture NX2. If it is hte Nikon Capture that was for the D2x, it is very old and can not be upgraded to the newest Nikon Capture NX2.
You could also download Adobe's DNG Converter and convert your NEF's to the Adobe DNG file type and then opening the DNG file in PhotoShop.
There are many versions and varaiations (Elements, CS, etc) of 'PhotoShop' providing the full product name and version may help us provide more information.
