    RAW in leopard?
    I have searched before and havent found much on the subject. So, is there anyway to get RAW (.NEF) files to work in Leopard? The reason I ask is I am stuck using Leopard with my 2.5 Quad G5 and I have many RAW files I would like to be able to view on it from my Nikon D3100. Thanks.

    The RAW updates for 10.5 support that camera already.
    But, the RAW updates are only supplied if you have either iPhoto or Aperture installed.
    The last update for 10.5.8 is available here.
    List of supported cameras with 10.5 here.
    (Actually, I don't know if the update requires iPhoto / Aperture or not, but you wouldn't be notified via the system 'Software Update' feature without one of them being installed.)

    If you are using Lightroom or PS, then you would probably need to get the RAW updates from Adobe.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    This should take care of you. ViewNX2 is free software from Nikon bundled with their cameras, and it handles RAW conversion.

    I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .
