RAW conversion software for Nikon D60
I just got my Nikon D60 and Photoshop CS2 doens't support the RAW files that it produces. Can anyone tell me about some free software that will convert it for me?.

Also is Nikon Capture NX worth the money?.

Plus, does anyone know if there is a add in for Picasa2 to view the D60's RAW files?..

Are you sure you can't update Adobe Camera Raw in CS2? Usually they keep on adding the RAW profiles for new cameras, though perhaps they only do this for CS3 now..

I have a friend that uses Capture NX and he seems to get by with it though I wouldn't care to use anything other than ACR from what I've seen of the competition!.

I bought ToneUp S3 to get the Nikon-quality conversionwithout the Nikon price-tag... not sure if it works forthe D60 though, it's not listed on their website.Tats40..

Sorry for the slow reply - been away for a bit..

ToneUp will load D60 NEFs using it's built-in DCRaw converter..

Hope that helps.

You will need CS3 for newer Nikon camera support, if you want to use CS for raw editing..

If you're just looking to convert, then Nikon View NX is free and will convert the raw files for you - I would imagine the latest version supports the D60..

Most definitely yes, IMO. I think it beats ACR for color and clarity. I've used both, and prefer NX over ACR, some people can get ACR to come close or match NX with some adjusting, but NX gives you great results easily, and lets you apply or change in-camera settings if you like. Its U-point technology with control points, and partial selection curves and levels are hard to beat..

Don't know..

Another vote for NX. It definitely gets the best out of Nikon photos (JPEG or NEFs). If you already have experience of other software I would still say the same..

But don't buy at UK inflated prices. Download it and pay for it in the US. I bought it here:.


Current price is $119.95..

Note: There is a separate manual that is a free download. I don't have a link to hand for that. There are also loads of tutorials on the net. This one will get you started:.
