Sort of - but that's not exactly, that's how it works. The DNG Convertor, converts NEF files into .dng copies. The .dng files can then be opened with Adobe Camera Raw (which ever version of ACR that is installed and works with your version of Photoshop). You make the ACR adjustments to the file in the Plugin Window immediately before the file actually opens in Photoshop.

So you end up with two files, the original NEF file and a new dng file. There advantages of DNG you can read about at Adobe.com. One downside is however that as ACR improves over successive versions with new features etc.,.. you are still going to be stuck with the earlier version that is compatible with your version of PhotoShop. But in theory, by the very nature of DNG as Adobe have created it to be a 'future-proof' format like PDF, even though you may miss some additional features you'll always be able to open it as long as you have some operating version of ACR and PS


If not, that really sucks.

So if you have PS6 then the most recent version of ACR will work and open D600 RAW files with no problem.

So you don't need the DNG Convertor other than if you decide to adopt it for its other archival benefits.
