Hi i've just recently realised that PS doesn't correctly read .NEF files causing the colours to look dull . I've installed the plugin but it appears to be support 32bit only. Are there any changeable settings in PS raw converter , maybe the default is set to AdobeRGB not sRGB if so where would I find these settings?

I've never heard of colours looking dull after being converted from NEF? I'll keep researching. :)
I'm running win7 btw.

If you open a .NEF in both View/captureNX and photoshop you'll see a difference this is, I think because Nikon hasn't disclosed the .NEF info for Adobe to use so some of the RAW settings aren't transfered

All of the info is there, the in camera processing information is not. It just takes a bit more tweaking to get it the way it should be.

It's the same in PSP.

It does look a little dull when 'RAW' in PS or Lightroom. Healthy does of 'clarity' and 'vibrance' is usually needed to perk some subjects up.

ViewNX does the colours and sharpness very well since it's tuned by the Nikon folks.
I alternate between the three depending on the subject. As such my filing is a mess.

Guess i'll have to use both programs together then.

Do the tools in photoshop eg "spot/blemish" brushes work just aswell with JPEGs as they do with .NEF/RAW though?
