    I have just bought a Nikon Coolpix P7100 and downloaded a set of raw files into Photoshop CS4 only to be told the files are 'not the right kind of document'

    Any advice?

    Peter.

    Nice camera, But the RAW data files are to new for the ACR ( Adobe Camera Raw ) version in the CS4 version of Photoshop.

    USE your Nikon software to convert them to " Tiff " files, Then open in CS4, Or download Adobes latest " DNG " converter, Change the RAW files to DNGs, Then open in CS4.

    Or if your feeling flush, Buy a copy of CS6, Or maybe even Elements 10, Or Lightroom 4......etc etc, These will have an up to date ACR engine, That will include your new camera.

    Try a free trial version of Lightroom 4, Its well worth a look....!!! Same applies to Photoshop Elements 10.

    Hi Vince,
    I'm not sure that anyone would be interested in using Elements, version 10 or otherwise after having CS4 at their fingertips.
    I recently had a go with the trial version, just to see what it was all about, having never used Elements before and although I knew it was going to be poor by comparison to 'proper' Photoshop, I didn't realise just how underpowered it actually was.
    Somewhere, I've still got a years-old copy of Serif PhotoPlus X2 which, admittedly, I think doesn't support current RAW files but it's still more than a match for Elements as an editor.

    Bren.

    When I brought my new camera, which wasn't supported by my version of photoshop, I ended up buying Lightroom 3 to get around the problem. I was really glad I did, it's a great way of cataloguing your images and I like editing raw files with it. I still use photoshop but nowhere near as much as I used to.

    I know I don't yet use it to its full potential, but hopefully will improve the more I use it. I also haven't upgraded to LR4 yet, but will very soon.

    Thanks for the advice cameracat but, I used Nikon View NX2 to convert the file into a tiff then tried to open it in PS4. It wouldn't open and a window stated, 'Could not complete your request because its not a valid Photoshop document'. After spending 350 in part because of the Raw facility I'm not impressed.

    Who should I blame, Nikon or Adobe?

    I have ViewNX 2.3.2 and Photoshop CS4 - and the process is fine. So...

    May I suggest you check your settings in the 'Convert Files' window as your first step..???

    How about a 'Screen grab' of the point before you hit the 'OK' button..?? Wink

    Neither - There's been 2 upgrades since you bought CS4... As Cameracat has already suggested, just download Adobes DNG converter which is free, convert the NEF files to DNG, then open the DNG files with CS4 and hey presto job done, it's how I open my D7000 files.

    I know Mike ! How dare they leave the forum behind and go socialising, working or sleeping after you've taken time to post your advice? If it gets to 48 hours you would be justified in asking that they be banned.

    It might come as a surprise to some here but I cannot, and don't want to spend all my time sitting at a computer. Photography is for me a hobby and more pressing issues do take priority. To those that have helped by making suggestions, my thanks, I will, once I've time get back to the problem be able to take advantage of this help.

    As to the future, I'll try not to waste your valuable time again.

    Many thanks again,

    Peter Lillywhite.
