    Opening Canon 1000D files in CS2

    Hi,
    I have just found that Photoshop CS2 won't open the RAW files off my 1000D, do I need to upgrade to CS3/4 to make this happen?

    Paul

    I believe CS4 will open files from the newer Canon cameras (1000D, 5DII etc), so an upgrade is one solution, albeit a rather expensive one.

    A cheaper alternative would be to use Canon's DPP software which comes bundled with your camera to do the RAW conversion and then open the resulting .tif or .jpg files with CS2 for any further processing.

    CS4 is the minimum version (with latest ACR) or Lightroom 2.5.
    Welcome to the wonderful world of adobe backward compatibility.

    Paul, with the 50D I open the files in DPP then 'save as' RAW/JPEG/Tiff in desktop folder (backed up). Check you have the update of DPP as it will save both formats at once.

    Thanks for all the advice, I have DPP installed and have also found Picasa will open them but this means changing my work flow from what I have done in the past. I guess it is not something that can be avoided

    You can download a RAW to DNG converter from the adobe site, convert the CR2 to DNG and than load that into CS2.
    Alternative options: DPP or PSE.
    Ciao, Joost

    All feedback is highly appreciated!

    IMO DPP is much better at raw conversion than ACR, I use DPP then Photoshop even though ACR will open my files.

    What he said, DNG converter works the same as raw converter and it's a free download and you don't lose quality.

    Horses for courses. Sometimes DPP is much better, sometimes ACR blows DPP out of the water. Especially on (slightly) overexposed images, ACR does a far better job than DPP.
