After I import NEF (Nkon RAW) images into my iPad 2 from the camera's SD card and open them for editing in PS Express, all I get is a thumbnail image. Is there any way to open the NEF file for editing without converting it to a JPEF or similar?

Photoshop Express for iOS does not currently support RAW image display or editing. Indeed, what you are seeing the the JPG thumb that resides alongside your large res image.

Suggested work-arounds are:
1) use the NEF plus JPEG option, if you camera supports it.
2) import your images to your device via iTunes, which should provide copies of the images our app can handle
