@tn63050dr if you have just installed Elements 2023, you need to go to the Help menu and choose to Install Camera Raw . .  This additional step for users of raw files is required because Adobe decided to reduce the download file size for those users who do not need Camera Raw.

 

I am assuming that you have an older Nikon camera and that ACR 14.4 which is installed with Elements 2023 is sufficient for your camera processing.  If you have a brand new camera, you may need a later version of ACR.  C

@Peru Bob Nikons use NEF files.  🙂

Thank you so much.  I did find it under help and installed it.  I edited some images last night with no problem.  I've used Elements since  think it was 2008 and as I said, never a probem.  My files were NEF then as well.  Not sure why it was changed, but none the less, thanks again!!

NEF is not a format.

Every new camera model comes with its own unique format. NEF is only a kind of 'Nikon' label for the new real camera models raw formats.

We are already close to having one hundred NEF formats !!!
