Raw Files, A Bit Confused

Vortek 12 20

I have Photoshop CS2 yet have only used it for JPEG images from my compact camera.
I have recently decided to go for a DSLR, that being the Nikon D50, but something has come up that I am a bit confused about. That being that Adobe dont have this camera on their list of supported cameras for Raw editing.
Does that mean I am forced to buy Nikon Capture software if I intend to alter any photos taken in RAW?

Many thanks.

Hi Vortek

It looks like it may be the case that you have to get Nikon Capture4. From what I can see up until recently Nikon were trying to exclude Adobe from editing their RAW file format, but they're all friends again now, if you see here it may mean that there will be another update to camera RAW soon to include it.

There is a review of Capture 4 here on Steve's digicams .

Why don`t you use Pixmantec rawshooter

Then just use Tiff files in photo shop

Hi Stefan

My mate has a D50 and uses CS2...don't worry, it handles the RAW format (Nikon use .NEF)

You may have to download the update for supported cameras from the Adobe site though.
