Using CS4, need to upgrade canon RAW convertor-which?
« on: May 27, 2015, 06:12:35 pm »

Im using CS4 Photoshop and bridge on Mac 10.8.5 and unable to open Canon RAW files from new 5D Mk 111, when I follow the links on this forum it says I need 6.5 or 7.1, but when I check before downloading it says will not be compatable with CS older than CS5, any ideas what I can do please?  I am unable to upgrade the CS due to conflicting with other programmes.

I have the same problem. OK, I work with Windows.

What I did is I use Canon's DPP Digital Photo Professional (I do not know if it is also available for Mac) and export the 5D MIII images to PS CS 4 in TIF format.

Windows users can use the very interesting MetaRaw
http://www.thepluginsite.com/products/metaraw/index.htm
“MetaRaw extends the functionality of the Adobe Camera Raw plugin in Photoshop and Photoshop
Elements. It lets you open camera raw files with Adobe Camera Raw, which are normally not
supported by it, and allows applying Adobe Camera Raw as a filter to image layers. In
Photoshop Elements MetaRaw provides automatic lens correction and chromatic aberration
removal features for Adobe Camera Raw. Additionally MetaRaw includes its own raw converter,
which has several advantages over Adobe Camera Raw.”


For OSX/Win, Photo Ninja can be used as a PhotoShop plug-in.

Capture One can send directly to PS http://blog.phaseone.com/quick-round-trip-photoshop/

Or get Adobe DNG Converter http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=5882
convert the CR2 to DNG and your old ACR will open

Download the DNG Convertor and then open the DNG files in your old software.

What would prevent that then?

Seems a bit daft to upgrade camera and then use ancient software that won't realise the camera's full potential. Later versions of ACR are much, much better.
