    Yes, you need Photoshop CS, and should get the latest version of the Camera
    Raw plug-in from Adobe's web site (it will not work on previous versions of

  5. You may need to download the latest version of the raw file plugin. It
    handles NEFs from th eD70 with no problem.

    Converters are included with Nikon View free software and are installed
    automatically when Nikon View is installed when an installed copy of
    Photoshop is found.
    The converter names are "Nikon NEF Plugin.8bi" and "Nikon YCC TIFF.8bi"
    and can be manually placed in the appropriate PS folder.
    For me the path is C:\Adobe\Photoshop\Plug Ins\Adobe Photoshop Only\File

    Nikon PictureProject or Capture should install a reader in Photoshop, which
    is annoying if you are running CS, because CS comes with a better one.

    Hi Don
    Thanks for the tip - I've just copied mine over and that, hopefully, should
    give me PS & Nikon View to work with -
    Nikon D70; SB800; Photoshop & Nikon view - all great tools to work with.
    Cheerio for now & thanks again

    You're welcome.
    Both the automatic install by Nikon View and the manual method worked for
    My first install of Nikon View was with PS already installed, but when I
    rebuilt my computer and (mistakenly) installed Nikon View *before* the PS
    installation, the converter was missing. I then did the manual installation
    and all was OK once again.

  10. Use the photoshop plugin which comes on the CD with the camera.

    Here you go...

    I'm on W98se, so the directory I'm looking at is C:\Program
    Files\Adobe\Photoshop 7.0\Plug-Ins\File Formats and the specific files are
    "Nikon NEF plugin_5x.8Bi" and "Nikon YCC TIFF_5x.8Bl".

    Rename the "Nikon NEF plugin_5x.8Bi" to "Nikon NEF plugin_5x.old" or
    something similar and the PS pRAW plugin will work again. Nikon Capture
    is rudeware and disables PS without asking you. NC will still work
    through its own icon or by choosing it in Nikon Browser.
