I recently bought a Canon EOS 5D, and I'm thrilled with my new camera! But whenever I download the pictures taken in RAW, I can't open them in Photoshop CS. I've been searching the Adobe's website for the plug-in needed to see the RAW files, but with no success! Can you point me in the right direction?
A RAW problem
Unfortunately, the bad news is that Adobe Photoshop CS's Camera RAW software doesn't support the Canon EOS 5D. The camera came out after CS2 had been released, so Adobe didn't update CS's Camera RAW to work with it.
If you still want to use Adobe's RAW software to convert, there is something that you can do. Download Adobe's DNG converter and convert your .CR2 files to Adobe's digital negative format. You'll be able to adjust the DNG files in CS's Camera RAW.
Otherwise, you have two choices: Use the software that came with your camera to convert to TIFF, and then go to Photoshop, or wait until CS3 comes out, and upgrade.
Good luck, and I hope that helps,
