"CS4 won't open V! NEF files"


US
          

Just starting to use my V!. NEF and jpeg files open in Lightroom, and if I use the "open with" command in LR to open NEFs in Photoshop everything works if i chose "open with LR adjustments". But if I just click 'open anyway", photoshop opens, but there's no file there. Further, if I just click on any of the V1 NEFs using finder, photoshop starts to open, but then returns an error message that it can't open this type of file. All of my other editors open the V! NEFs fine. Also, Photoshop does open the V!'s jpg files fine. It's just NEF files from the V! that Photoshop won't open. Trying to open directly in Bridge returns the same error. CS4 does open NEFs from my other Nikons. I've checked and have the latest updates for CS4 and Bridge. All of this is on a nearly new Mac Mini, 8GB RAM, plenty of HD space. Any help greatly appreciated!

Photoshop CS4 is a bit out of date and its version of Adobe Camera Raw doesn't know anything about the Nikon V1.

To open a V1 NEF, you need Adobe Camera Raw 6.6 (or later). Your copy of Lightroom has ACR 6.6 (or later) so no problem there. But ACR 6.6 will only load into Photoshop CS5 or later — Photoshop CS4 will never be able to open a V1 NEF.

Your options:
• Only edit V1 RAW files in Lightroom, and when you want to pass an image to Photoshop, use the "Lightroom adjustments"
• Download the Adobe DNG converter, convert the V1 NEFs to DNG, and then you can work them in your version of Photoshop
• Upgrade your Photoshop.

Thanks for the quick response, and I understand the problem now. Looks like I stumbled on the workaround myself (going to PS through LR), and given the price of updating to newer versions of PS, I've opted to learn to live with what I've got. I really don't use PS that much anymore anyway. Thanks again!
