Can anyone who has Elements 4 tell me if it can convert raw files from a Nikon D70 camera?
Have a friend with the D70 but is not willing to buy Elements 4 until he knows whether it can convert Nikon raw files. He has contacted Adobe but they say they do not have facilities in place to answer specific questions.
He has also done a Google but none of the specifications mention Nikon. Only says "converts raw files" but very non specific.
He already has Photoshop 7 and Elements 2 but neither of these will convert raw files.
Have re-opened your thread to say that I had a similar issue with Canon RAW files.
I may be wrong but will be surprised if Elements can process these files - only because Adobe Photoshop couldn't even until the latest version CS2 was introduced.
If getting this suite is not an option, then I thouroughly recommend "RAWEssential" - a free download.Sorry, can't remember the Company but I remember finding it easily through a search engine.Its very easy to use.
May I also be so bold to advise your friend that if he has the capability to shoot and process in RAW then he must do so! The end results are so much more predictable compared to a JPEG because in effect, you have the ability to control every parameter from exposure to colour temperature for example (within reason anyway!).
