    I've used PSE 5 for quite a while and value it most for its catalog and tagging functions.

    Recently got a Nikon D40x and trial version of Capture NX2 software, I am immediately seeing better image results in NX2.

    But the changes I make with NX2 to the .NEF files are not visible in PSE 5.
    I tried setting NX2 as external editor for PSE 5, but that made no difference.

    Is there any way around this?

    The goals is to keep PSE 5 as the catalog/browser and use NX2 for edits.

    Elements won't recognize the edits you make to NEFs with other software, unless you save them to readable file formats, i.e., jpeg, tiff, etc.
