CR2 file not loading in to Photoshop Elements 10

Feb 4, 2013 2:50 AM

I have recently bought a Canon 650D and I am now unable to load CR2 Raw files in to Elements 10 for editing-it is coming up with a message "Cannot open ....... CR2 because it is the wrong type of file.  I have not had this problem before.

    You have two alternatives:

     

    (1) Upgrade to PSE 11. (2) Download and install the free Adobe DNG converter to convert your raw files to the Adobe universal Raw format and the CR2 files will open in PSE10 (keep your originals as backups and for use in the camera manufactures software - DPP)

     

    Windows download click here DNG Converter 7.3

     

    Mac download click here DNG Converter 7.3

     

    You can convert a whole folder of raw images in one click. See this quick video tutorial:

    Sorry folks. It didn't work for me. When I navigated to the folder with the CR2 files, they were 'greyed out'.

    Guess I have a reason to upgrade now

    Yes those CR2 won't work with PSE10 unless you convert to DNG

    Um. OK, it worked, but it's  a faff. Think I still have an excuse to upgrade.

    I still am not able to open CR2 files and use the canon g15.

     

    I go into PSE, clilck open, select a file and get the error message that it is the wrong type of file when I try to open it.

     

    Any suggestions.... I really don't want to upgrade to 11!
