Question about Adobe Photoshop CS3 10

1 Answer

I have a series of .NEF RAW files photos from Nikon D50 digital camera. Need to take them into PhotoShop CS3 Camera RAW. I have one that has a grey card for balance and will use for color correction. I wish to create an automated ACTION or Droplet so I can batch the other photo series. They would be saved to .DNG 16 bit. As I need to then individually retouch and crop each image in PhotoShop CS3 before finally saving them as 8 bit JPEG. Question: 1. Which is best to create for this a ACTION or DROPLET. 2. How d I create the ACTION or Droplet.

    Thank you for the Action steps they where great.


    I have created actions many time before. I have PhotoShop CS3 and dealing with Camera RAW. The Camera Raw Plug-In seems to fuction slightly differently to norma PhototShop step review actions. It appears from what I can see that the information is on Camera RAW actions is stored in the OPEN command and the actions are now displayed. Which makes it difficult to tell if you have record the Camera RAW actions successfully. I have had mixed results and have failed at creating a Droplet from using Camera RAW.

Droplets are simply actions contained within an icon in which you drag your images.

All those things are more appropriate for scripts. Actions can be a part of the script. You can learn about how to create them at PhotoshopSupport.com here. It takes some skill. But it can work out very nicely for you.

However, I recommend you consider Adobe Lightroom (LR) for your Raw files to help you go through and do quick edits. LR will export as any format, resolution and bit depth. Then you can fine tune them in Photoshop. LR can also exports DNG for you as well.

I've recently upgraded to Windows 7 and now Bridge CS3 does not recognize raw files in my Nikon D200. D700 works fine all raw files on hard drive are okay. Have any suggestions?


Go to Adobe.com. In the support section, locate and download the Camera Raw updater. The original ACR in CS3 does not read D200 .NEF files

Camera RAW and PhotoShop CS3


To start, before building an action or a droplet to convert from Raw, you need at least either the RAW plugin, or the photoshop lightroom plugin, depending on the version of Photoshop. I assume you have the plugin installed on your Photoshop. See: Adobe - Adobe Photoshop CS4: Digital camera raw file support.

A better choice would be having the Nikon Capture NX , that give you the option to work on the native RAW format from Nikon.

Once you have installed a plugin to manage RAW format files you can record an action or droplet to automate the process. If youj want more automation, you set an action first, as a batch process to do action on a single file, then build a droplet on the action batch file. A droplet will give more automation, since droplets can be activated by dropping a folder of images onto that specific Droplet Process, and they will apply the batch process to all the files contained in the folder.

The way you build the batch action depends much on the version of Photoshop you are using and on the plugin used. Here an example using Adobe PS CS2 and camera Raw plugin: Raw Format Workflow with Adobe Bridge .

The action can be saved using the recorder, so that the procedure will de quite instinctive. See the tutorials below for step-by-step instructions.

How can I use the Adobe Camera Raw plugin after installing Nikon Software?


During the installation of Nikon View or Picture Project, your system is checked for an installed copy of Adobe Photoshop. If a copy with the minimum version is found, Nikon View will install file format filters which will allow Photoshop to open a NEF/RAW file directly (there are other plugins for YCBCR TIFF format from supported cameras). If you have the Adobe Photoshop "Camera Raw" software installed (optional in Photoshop version 7, included in Photoshop version CS) the Nikon file filters will open the file. If you prefer to continue using the Adobe software, find and remove the following plugins: Nikon NEF Plugin (Nikon View) Nikon NEF Plugin LE (Picture Project) After a restart of Adobe Photoshop, the Adobe Photoshop "Camera Raw" plugin will handle the opening of Nikon NEF/RAW format files. Please note that there was an update for Adobe Camera Raw plugin for support of D70 and Coolpix 8700 RAW files, if you encounter difficulty opening raw files from any Nikon product after removal of the Nikon Plugins, please visit the Adobe support site to obtain the appropriate update for the Adobe Camera Raw plugin.
