  • Nikon RAW viewing

    Howdy boys and girls

    When taking aviation photos with my Nikon D90, I always use RAW mode. Then when I save the photos in my PC I use the Abobe Bridge CS5 so I can view the photos and select the ones I will then send to Photoshop for their adjustment.

    Now, I don't like this Adobe Bridge all too much. What is the best software for viewing RAW (Nikon) photos (no adjustments - those will be done in Photoshop as usual).

    Any help or suggestions are most welcome.

    Faststone imsgeviewer works fine for me to view RAW files.

      Nikon has a product called ViewNX - it came on a CD with my camera a few years ago - not sure if it is still available.

        Yes I know that ViewNX is included with most Nikon cameras.
        ViewNX (full) and CaptureNX2 (trial) are free for download at Nikon websites.

        However, I do not want a duplicate of Photoshop - another software that can edit, crop, etc... I just want a RAW viewer.

        Sure you can tell me, just download ViewNX or Faststone and just use what you need. I agree - but since Windows cannot see RAW files, a simple viewer other than Adobe Bridge would be nice. For some odd reason, Adobe Bridge does not produce a clear image when viewing RAW files.

            Stefan - excellent solution!

            I highly recommend this solution to all.
            The solution permits viewing RAW files like you would view JPEG files in Windows - no additional software needed - and crystal clear!

            Download the solution straight from Microsoft:
