    CaptureNX Trial does not install plugins to Photoshop and best work-around

    In my last thread I asked if anyone would check this subject's thread out.

    Well I have had a chance to and here is the bad news.

    I found a clean computer and installed the trial Photoshop CS3 and installed it. Then I installed the trial CaptureNX.

    I then tried to open an NEF file with Photoshop and no luck.

    I also looked at the properties of the Photoshop program files before and after and they did not change from before the CaptureNX trial install and after.

    Therefore unlike PictureProject where it is claimed that installing it after installing Photoshop will install the .8bi plugins into Photoshop, no similar photoshop plugin install happens when CaptureNX is installed after Photoshop has been installed.

    Nikon has got us: buy CaptureNX if you want to process 16-bit NEF files.

    My best Photoshop work-around is as follows: I use the Nikon CaptureNX trial and save my NEF files in RGB TIFF 16-bit uncompressed lossless file format and then open them in Photoshop to work with.

    Hope this helps.
