The time it took to open RAW photos into Photoshop CS through the Nikon NEF plug-in (the version that's included with Nikon View 6.1.0 for Windows and 6.1.1 for Mac) was tested.

All results are in seconds. Single photo processing times are rounded to the nearest 0.1 of a second; batch processing times are rounded to the nearest full second. The fastest times for each task are in bold.

Testing Notes: All files had been resaved as uncompressed NEFs with a new instruction set in Capture 4 prior to testing. This forces the NEF plug-in for Photoshop to bypass the display of its parameters dialog as the photo is processed, thereby allowing for cleaner measurement of processing times.
