Re: raw files

There is an update you need to download from Adobe that allows Elements to read the Canon RAW files. It has been a while since I installed it on my computer so I do not remember the details other than you download a particular file and replace an existing one in a folder somewhere.

I'll have a trawl through the web and see if I can find a reminder on how I did it. If you get really stuck send me a PM, as I am a total pakkrat it is quite likely I still have the file stashed somewhere from when I downloaded it.

Re: raw files

Here you go - you need to download the latest version as the one I have would not cover the 50D anyway.

Re: raw files

Seems your not alone with Camera raw 5.3, have you tried 5.4, The quote below was pasted from---> Here
Quote:
Install Camera Raw 5.4 for Photoshop Elements 6 on Windows

1. Close Photoshop Elements 6.
2. Download Camera Raw 5.4 from Adobe - Photoshop Elements : For Windows : Camera Raw 5.4 update.
3. Extract the Camera Raw.8bi file from the ZIP file you downloaded. (Extract only the Camera Raw.8bi file that is at the top level of the ZIP file. Do not extract the Camera Raw.8bi file from the Win64 folder that is inside the ZIP file. This folder contains the 64-bit edition of the Camera Raw plug-in, which is compatible only with the 64-bit edition of Photoshop CS4.)

Note: ZIP files are compressed files which contain other files. On Windows Vista, you can extract Camera Raw.8bi by right-clicking on the file you downloaded, choosing Extract All, clicking Extract, and then opening the newly-created Camera_Raw_5_4 folder. On Windows XP, you can extract Camera Raw.8bi by right-clicking on the file that you downloaded, choosing Open With > Compressed (Zipped) Folders, and then dragging Camera Raw.8bi to your Desktop.

4. Do one of the following:

* If you use a 32-bit edition of Windows, then move Camera Raw.8bi into \Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 6.0\Plug-Ins\File Formats. If you are prompted to overwrite the existing plug-in file, then click Yes or Overwrite.
* If you use a 64-bit edition of Windows, then move Camera Raw.8bi into \Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 6.0\Plug-Ins\File Formats. If you are prompted to overwrite the existing plug-in file, then click Yes or Overwrite.
5. To install Camera Profiles, extract the CameraProfiles.exe file from the ZIP file that you downloaded. Next, double-click on CameraProfiles.exe and then follow the on-screen instructions.

Re: raw files

As I haven't bought a new camera recently I haven't felt the need to update my RAW plug-ins. Anyone know if there is any advantage to updating to the later versions or if it just adds in new cameras?

Re: raw files

I downloaded the 30 day trial cos I was nosey and got the latest Camera raw plugin, to be honest there wasn't really enough (for me anyway) to justify spending money on upgrading to PS CS4 just to have CR5. CR 5 apparently is not compatible with PS CS3. I don't know what you use just now but I'm quite happy to stay with CS3 for the time being. See what the next release brings.

The Adobe release notes sometimes speak of bugs being fixed with an ACR update, but if you are not having any problems I don't think it is worth updating. The main purpose is to add the latest cameras.
