Got a file with .NEF extension and you’re not sure what to do with it? NEF image format is Nikon’s RAW image format, which is not supported by many programs. Adobe Photoshop does support it, but it’s a very expensive program for a one time image conversion needs. Luckily, I found a freeware app that does just that. A very simple conversion of NEF file into JPG. Granted, it might not be the most complex and advanced and doesn’t really allow any image parameters modifications, but it does convert images from unusable NEF format (for most casual users) into a workable JPG file format. Actually, it also supports BMP, GIF, PNG and TIFF as the output format.
