Canon RAW Codec

Nov 25, 2009 5:16 AM

All, I have read the discussion on this issue and am somewhat confused. I was running a trial version of PSE8 and had no issue reading Raw images from my 7D I bought the product five days into the trial and have just tried to open some Raw images from the same camera and it comes up with an error "Cannot open...... .CR2 because it is a wrong type of file"!! Hey I was working with these files yesterday and all I've changed is buy the software and put in the key!!

    Hmm, PSE 8 ships with the Adobe Camera Raw plug-in version 5.5, which according to this Web page doesn't support the Canon 7D:



    ACR 5.6, which is still in beta, does support the Canon 7D:



    So I don't know how you were able to read the 7D raw files in the PSE 8 trial.  Perhaps you have your camera set to take JPEG + raw, and you were loading the JPEGs?


    The ACR 5.6 beta wasn't intended to be installed with PSE 8 (you generally have to wait for the final release), but see this post for a hack workaround that might work for you:

    function(){return A.apply(null,[this].concat($A(arguments)))}

    I don't know how to get this onto the system as answered and the detail, If you let me know how I will do so!! Can't believe I will be the only mug!!

    I'm not understanding?

    Ah, I see.  It's a moot point now, because Adobe just released ACR 5.6, with full instructions about how to download and install it for PSE.   See
