There are a number of file types that Lightroom supports including an extensive list of Camera Raw Formats (for a complete list click here), DNG, JPEG PSD, TIFF, and AVI, MOV, MP4, AVCHD and other digital video files from digital still cameras (click here for a complete list). But every once in a while, I run into a file that Lightroom can’t open because there are a few exceptions:
• PNG (although they can be used for Identity Plates, Watermarks and Layout Overlay).
• Nikon scanner NEF.
• Files that have the longest dimension greater than 65,000 pixels or are larger than 512 megapixels.
• PSD files saved without Maximize PSD and PSB File Compatibility turned on in the File Handling Preferences.
• 32 bit PSD files.
