Importing CR2 files into LR 3.5

Apr 7, 2012 11:20 PM



I have a Canon Rebel XS 1000D that I have been recently shooting RAW images with. However, when I go to import the .cr2 files into LR, it says that it does not recognize the format. What should I do?

Thanks for your help

    You will need to upgrade to a newer version of Lightroom or convert the files to DNG format with the free DNG Converter.

    The Canon Rebel XS 1000D has been supported for some time. So, it's not clear why you are getting this message. Have you tried updating to Lightroom 3.6

  Windows version

  Mac vesion

    Mac or Windows? Are you trying to import from a card reader or directly from the camera? When troubleshooting, you need to give people enough system info to be able to help you.

    Well, that's not optimal...try a card reader (connecting a camera directly is not the best solution).
