Help needed with editing Raw images from a Nikon D7200 camera.
I recently bought a used D7200 and thought I had covered the Spec. etc only to find Raw images are not supported by VNX2 which I have been using to good effect using my D300.:*

I am finding it a mine field as to how and with what, to be able to Edit RAW/NEF files from a D7200.

I would appear that Lightroom 6 might be the answer, however on checking users forums etc. on Google it looks as if its ok for some users but others have problems with L6. all with a Nikon D7200.
Is there anybody out there that can give a definitive answer if L6 is the way to go, or a good alternative?.
With thanks for any help .

I don't know as I am a Canon user, but you can download the latest version as a 30 day trial.

You can get it here


I actually use their rent facility and rent the latest version of Photoshop and Lightroom for about 8 a month, but I do use it a lot as itake thousands of images.

Also, you may be unaware but Google took over a company and have released their previously $500 worth of plugins for FREE.

You can read the blurb and get them from the links on here

Nutloose, I'm interested but your link is to a news page.

boguing, the link was in the story - here it is

".........get the software here (https://www.google.com/nikcollection/). The videos here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=0vU6TWsYVmU) show you how to install it. You can find out how to run the Nik programs as standalone apps — if you don’t own Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Lightroom, Bridge, or Aperture — here. (http://photo.stackexchange.com/questions/75907/can-the-nik-collection-be-used-without-photoshop-or-lightroom).

And this video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gikVjBnpTRQ) gives a concise one-hour lesson in using all six plug-ins. If you need more, "this page (https://www.youtube.com/user/NikSoftwareLessons) is full of video tutorials.

How strange - the first time I opened the link it went to a Yahoo news headline page with no obvious connection to this thread, but the second time it took me to the article?

Now downloading the tools and looking forward to trying Colour Efex in particular. Thanks.

Thanks for all the replies.

I have managed to do what I wanted to do, edit NEF files from my Nikon D7200.

I edit original NEF images in Capture NX-D then convert to a top quality Jpeg.
Then fine tune in Photoshop Elements 14 ready to make up a larger file of images to send via "WeTransfer".
