p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Is Photoshop CS3 Compatible with Canon 7D RAW Files?


I have a Canon 7D on the way, and I use Photoshop CS3 for image editing now (Canon 40D RAW files). I am not a pro, but like to shoot RAW and use ACR to process them before cropping, sharpening, converting to jpeg, etc.

One thing I don't know is if I will need to upgrade to the latest Photoshop version (CS6 I think?) in order to be able to process 7D RAW files?

Praying that I don't need to spend a couple hundred more dollars just to be able to process the 7D RAW files...

Thanks in advance!

Jason

No. You have to update to CS4 or later. Or convert to DNG and then work the file.

dont think so. you can always check the Adobe site but Camera Raw versions are locked to PS versions so you can't update one w/o the other across major PS versions.

Anyway, it seems like CS3 has Camera Raw 4.6 as the latest version and these are the supported Canon cameras

Crap. Was afraid of this. I guess I need to try converting a few current 40D .CR2 files to DNG to see if I can live I with this added workflow step, or pony up the $200 to upgrade to Photoshop CS6.

Does anyone here use DNG files exclusively to archive raw files as their digital negatives? I have raw files from 20D, 30D, and 40D camera bodies going back to 2005...

Thanks.

Yup all my files are DNG I convert when I import them. There is a separate conversion program that is free from Adobe doesn't take very long to do a bunch of files
