Can I open raw files using photoshop elements
If you have PSE 10, you can open raw files from any camera included in the list of supported cameras for Adobe Camera Raw 6.7
Yes, depending on the Camera Model and version of PSE.
All camera makers like to make slight changes to the RAW format for their new models. Adobe then take a few months to produce a camera RAW plug-in to process the new format.
Give you PSE version and camera model and we could be more help.
I just have the basic elements and a Canon 5D.
There's no such thing as "the basic elements". Which version do you have? PSE 1? PSE 10? or something in between?
For a 5D you need a minimum version of PSE 4, for a 5DMkII you would need at least PSE 7 and for the 5DMkIII you would need PSE 10.
It must be the first one
Thanks looks like I need to upgrade
