  • Lightroom Classic 7.5 and Lightroom CC 1.5 have just gone live, and there's some exciting mobile updates to follow. And the big news... my Lightroom CC - Edit Like a Pro book has just been released too!
  • Are you ever disappointed with your photos? Do you get frustrated when you’re editing because you’ve been told to move certain sliders, but never been told WHY? Do you wish you could transform your photos without having to spend hours in front of the computer? In my new book, Adobe Lightroom CC - Edit Like a Pro, you’ll learn:
    • how to to analyze a photo like a pro, saving you hours of frustration.
    • WHY you might want to move specific sliders, instead of just following recipes.
    • what the sliders are doing behind the scenes.
    • how to use sliders together, instead of in isolation, so you can get the optimal result
    The book is based on the cloud-native Lightroom CC desktop and mobile apps, but the principles also apply to Lightroom 6 and Lightroom Classic. The sliders are arranged into slightly different panels, but there's an included PDF that shows you where to find them in Lightroom Classic/6.

Hey everyone,
I just bought Lightroom 6 and ran into this problem straight away.
I can't import my NEF photos of a Nikon D3400.
Do i need to convert them before using them in LR?
Or did i buy the wrong version and should have gone with a CC subscription? :(
Thanks for your help!

FWIW Feathery, I have a D5100 and have no problems Import 'adding' my pictures to LR. I leave them in the folder where they are.

Is the problem with downloading the pictures from the camera directly or in Importing them. I take it there are no error messages.

Here you go _feathery_, the 6.14 patch on is on this page Download Photoshop Lightroom hiding under Download Adobe Photoshop Lightroom > Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6. 6.14 is the latest and last, so that's the one you need.
