So I am just wondering if any or yours know any why to fix the problem

    Photoshop CS5 is over $1000.00 of software. Did you pay for it, or has your 'lovely computer guy' given you a copy?

    Even better, don't use CS5 to open your NEF files. Download the free application from Nikon called ViewNX2. Free download and it does a better job at decoding and editing raw files. You can then export them to CS5 or save them as any format you choose.

    Kel... You should have got "camera Raw" Which normally comes with CS5. If not I think you got a bodgy copy.
    When you double click a RAW (NEF) file in windows explorer, CS5 will open, then a new window will open being "camera Raw". You should have also got "Bridge" with it as well.
