    Is your Camera Raw.plugin up to date
    Check Adobe for your version of Photoshop
    The latest for cs3 is 4.6
    Don't download the latest one as that is for cs4. It wont work with cs3

    For the camera raw.plugin
    Start at the main HD not your home folder
    Library~Application Support~Adobe~plugins~CS3~file formates

    If you have cs3 the correct one is 4.6

    It sound like your putting it in the other plugin folder. The one thats inside your photoshop's main application's folder.
    home~library~photoshop~plugins
    If you did put one in here, remove it.

    Please HELP!

    Hi,
    I've tried everything, and still struggle. My computer (Windows XP) and Photoshop (photoshop 7) can't open my Nikon D60 Raw photographs. I've tried a lot of programs to convert the raw files, and raw plugins, but still had no luck...
    If someone can, please help me, it's driving me crazy...
    Thanks

    Photoshop 7 dates from 2002 and was superceded by CS in 2003. Your camera was introduced in 2008 and it was first supported by ACR 4.4.1 which was released with CS3. So the short answer is upgrade your version of Photoshop.

    edit: I should have read your question a bit more closely. You can download viewnx from the Nikon site and it will let you convert your raw files to jpg or tiff files. It's not much, but at least it's free.

    mfr. software?

    workaround: does the nikon ship with a raw conversion software? If so use that to do your first general color conversion and save the result as a png/tif and then open that in photoshop.

    Anyway I know my Olympus came with something like that -- though I use Raw Developer...

    Thanx,
    I'll just try to update Photoshop 'cause NikonViewNX don't want to let me use my raw photos.
    But thanks

    You'll need to buy a newer version of Photoshop as 7 only offered raw support as a separate add-on which is no longer available and will never open your D60 files. You won't even be able to work with DNG files as there's no support in Photoshop 7 for those either. Everything from CS and newer will open DNG, though.

    Thanx,
    Maybe you can give me some advice?
    I still have to work on a Windows PC, I have Windows XP, which version of Photoshop CS will be the best?
