For a couple of years I've been using Irfanview 64-bit 4.42 (now with Windows 10) to process my .jpg image files (from Nikon D700). I want to use it to process NEF files and have tried to do this but it's not working.
I'm not certain whether I need a specific NEF plug-in or whether RAW covers NEF. If I need NEF, where should I download it from?
Also, I noticed today there is now 64-bit 4.44. Should I download this? If so, will this be in the form of an update or do I need to first uninstall 4,42 and then install 4.44?
In addition, I read today that Irfanview "cannot process NEF but merely processes the embedded jpg. So all in all I need a little help in order to move forward. I'm sorry, my level of ability and knowledge is very low. I've been able to use Irfanview for what I've wanted to do so far but beyond that I know very little.
