I re­fer back to ‘Ask Matt’ in Is­sue 46, when reader Michael O’Sul­li­van was faced with up­grad­ing his ver­sion of El­e­ments. An up­grade was said to be nec­es­sary in or­der to view RAW files from his D5200. I had a sim­i­lar prob­lem with El­e­ments 11 and my D610, but found a cheaper al­ter­na­tive to up­grad­ing El­e­ments. The so­lu­tion is to down­load the Adobe DNG con­ver­tor, which can con­vert RAW files to DNGs. The DNG file can then be pro­cessed by ear­lier ver­sions of El­e­ments.

Kenny Devine, via email Many thanks for the info, Kenny. It’s a great way of switch­ing your RAW files into a read­able for­mat, but bear in mind you still need the com­pat­i­ble ver­sion of Cam­era Raw which, thank­fully, is still a free down­load.
