I decided to use NX Studio because I ran into problems working with RAW (NEF) files from my new D7500. It's because
I normally use Adobe Lightroom 5 for cataloging and most editing and LR5 cannot recognise this more recent format. My plan is to see what I can do in NX Studio and perhaps figure out a kind of "interface" from it to LR5. (But it will still be impossible to view NEFs there so I'm not so sure how good a workflow that would be!)
Anyway -- I am using a Windows 7 PC and when I look at NX Studio download page, system requirements include:
Microsoft Windows 11
Microsoft Windows 10
Note: Pre-installed 64-bit editions only.
Does that last part mean that for NX Studio I cannot just upgrade to Win 10, that I need it on a PC which I bought with Win 10 on it?
Other options for my initial problem:
-- Use Adobe NEF to DNG converter -- it needs Win 10 too but maybe not pre-installed
-- Buy LR5 to LR6 upgrade -- seems the simplest
Thanks for any advice!
