I've taken some shots with my new Z6 and now I want to move a full copy to photoshop. How do I do that. I can't seem to find a way to send a copy to my desk top to then go into photoshop to edit and eventually print.

On the same subject how do I move movie files to an editable app.

Based on your profile you’re an experienced photographer with previous digital cameras. The file transfer to your computer has not changed. Decide where you want to put the photos and either tether your camera to the computer or use a memory card reader,

The new bit is most likely in downloading the latest RAW conversion software for Photoshop. With every new camera comes upgrades, and you’ll need to install them in Photoshop before you can open and process an image.

Hi Mike. A few pieces of information from you would help. Are you using a PC or a Mac and what photo software do you currently have or are planning to use?

There's more than one way to do this, but here is one way.
1. Get a USB cable that connects from your Z6 to your computer.
2. Create a folder on your computer for the photos you took.
3. Upload the NEF (raw), .mov (movie) or JPEG photos to that folder.
4. You can then open any of the NEF files with Photoshop by going to File -> Open and then navigate to the folder you created and select one of the NEF files and open it.

That should get you started.

Thanks for responding. I think the usb cable is the way to go unless there is a card reader for what seems to be a card I've never used before. I'll chech that out.

As soon as the CFExpress cards came out, there were card readers for it. I have tried several and recommend the Delkin. I believe Sony has one that will read both XQD and CFExpress cards, but normally they do not read both. But you know you can use a XQD card too, not knowing what other cameras you have had. T

Take care
