Help, PS3 raw issues

Discussion in 'General Discussion' started by Matt S, Sep 22, 2005.

  1. For some reason when I open my raw files in PS3 I no longer get the advanced raw controls that I used to get. I only get the one from PS2 where you can change white balance (and only to a preset) and exposure. What setting did I change??? I miss the control I had before. Help :mad: 

    P.S. I did change cameras from d70 to d70s a while ago but I don't think that is the issue.

    PS3? You mean Paint Shop Pro (PSP)? Or Photoshop Elements 3 (PSE)? Or Photoshop CS (PS)

    If you recently installed Nikon software, it will install a NEF converter that over-rides Photoshop's Adobe Camera RAW converter (has controls like WB and stuff) with a Nikon NEF converter (only allows for exposure adjustment).

    As far as PSP, I'm not sure that Nikon installs a plug-in, as I don't have a copy so I can't help there.
  3. I think your on to something. Sorry about the confusion over image software. I have Elements 3. However I did recently install my trial version of capture and view etc. I didn't do it when I got the D70s because I had already been through it all with my D70. But I thought I should at least get my free 30 days out of captures trial version. So now the big question how do I get rid of the NEF converter and use the one in Elements??

    If you're on a PC, it's located in the

    /Adobe/Photoshop Elements 3.0/Plug-Ins/File Formats

    Folder - it's called "Nikon NEF Plugin.8Bi"

    Simply delete it (or rename it to "Nikon NEF Plugin.8Bi.inact") and restart PSE, and you'll be fine. BTW, there's a new version of ACR (3.2) available now:


  5. Thanks, got it. It did not work at first, I had to replace the existing camera raw with the new one you linked to. That seemed to do it. Thanks again. :smile:
