Can photoshop elements 11 read raw files? [from the Nikon D500]

I'm doing an experiement with my Nikon D500, have switched from fine to where it shoots jpeg and raw. I am going to try and upload the images to elements 11.

Can you good people tell me if it will read raw, or just be a boring black square?

Many thanks.

Cameras supported by Camera Raw

Camera Raw plug-in and Adobe application compatibility

Read the two tables at the above links in conjunction with each other.

The first table says that the D500 was first supported in Camera Raw 9.5.

The second table says that Camera Raw 9.5 was first supported in Elements 14. So Elements 11 will never be able read those Raw files since there will be no more updates for Elements 11.

You have a couple of options:

  1. Pay to upgrade to Elements 2018 if your computer can support it
    Tech Specs & System Requirements | Adobe Photoshop Elements 2018
  2. Or convert the Raw files to DNG using the free Adobe DNG converter. Then open the DNG files (Not the Raw files) in Elements 11. An extra step for you but no extra cost.

The easiest way to upgrade is to purchase the upgrade. Don't know what else to say about that. There will be new features, a different interface, compatibility with the latest Camera Raw. I can't tell you much more than that because I haven't used Photoshop Elements in a long, long time. But here is a link where you can find out more:
