    When I try to open a .NEF files from my new Nikon D3 in Photoshop CS2, I get
    the following error:

    "Could not complete your request because of a program error."

    Can anyone tell me where I can get the proper Raw file converter for
    Photoshop CS2 for my new D3?

    The Adobe Camera Raw update that supports your camera is v 4.3.1. However,
    this update will not work in CS2, so you will need to upgrade to CS3.

  3. It's not going to happen. You need to upgrade to CS3. I'm not sure if you
    believe in paying for software? If you don't, there's a gentleman in this
    group that will fix you up with a "fixed" copy and a free keygen. Just ask
    Bret; he'll tell you what to do.

    As others have mentioned, CS2 cannot be equipped with an Adobe Camera
    Raw plug-in to handle the D3 NEF files. The latest ACR plug-in for CS2 is
    3.7 and it won't process the D3 raw files.
    However, as the others have failed to mention, there is another option.
    Ensure your CS2 is equipped with the 3.7 ACR plug-in and it is working
    properly (presumably by continuing to convert your current Digital raw
    files). Download the Adobe 4.3.1 DNG Converter and it will convert your D3
    NEF files to DNG files, which you can open and process with CS2 equipped
    with ACR 3.7
    Thus, you can continue to use CS2 to process the files from your D3 with
    the one added step in your workflow (conversion to DNG). You can even
    choose to store your original NEF files within your DNG files for archiving
    purposes and remove them in the future, should the need arise.

    Thanks. Or I can convert the D3 .NEF images into .TIF using the updated
    version of Capture NX that came with my D3. Then I can of course open the
    ..TIF with PS CS2.

    If you want something a little less expensive try PhaseOne Capture1
    lite. They should have their D3 version out.

    as others have posted, you need the latest version of adobe camera raw
    and that will not run in photoshop cs2.

    however, i would suggest looking into adobe lightroom. it has the
    latest adobe camera raw built in, and it does many of the things people
    use photoshop for, such as white balance, exposure adjustment,
    sharpening, dust spot correction and cropping. i'm finding that i
    rarely use photoshop anymore. there's a free trial too.

    There are two plug-ins that convert NEF files for Photoshop. One is
    supplied with Photoshop. Adobe is no longer updating the raw file
    plug-in for CS2. The other is supplied by Nikon and it came with your

    I have a D3, and didn't find anything on the CD from Nikon to convert their
    NEFs. I did end up converting to DNG, and then the files opened in CS2.

    Finally got CS3, and the new NEFs open without conversion just fine.

    Capture NX that came with your D3 will open its .NET files just file.
