    I just got home with my D5200 and Photoshop CS3 won't open my NEF Raw file. I've tried plug-in updates but nothing is working.

    I'm hoping somebody here can help!!

    Thank you!

    It wouldn't open my Sony raw files either. My friend downloaded a converter to get it to read her Canon.

    I just tested that converter and it seems to work. It does change it to another photo type - I hope it's the same quality!

    For those who may be having the problem it's the Adobe DNG converter.

    Thanks for the info! Do you know if the latest version of Lightroom will support NEF Raw Nikon D5200 files? I may just do that and get basic. If I need to edit deeper then I can use CS3,

    The latest version of Lightroom also uses ACR 7.

    ACR 7 was a major update from ACR 6.

    ACR 6 (CS 5/LR 3) was Process Version 2010, and ACR 7 (CS 6/LR 4) is now Process Version 2012.
    Process Version 2003 was used with CS 3, CS 4/LR 1, 2.

    Your CS 3 is 2 Process Versions behind LR 4.

    You may want to consider upgrading to CS 6 because CS 3 likely won't qualify you for upgrade pricing when CS 7 launches sometime late next year.
