I just got a Canon EOS Rebel T5 and now I find out that Lightroom 3 doesn't recognize it's CR2 (RAW) files.
The link below states that Lr 5.4 is the minimum Lr version required to read these files.
My question is, is there a way to update my Lr3 settings for free to recognize the T5's CR2 files?
I can't afford to purchase the update for Lr5....
If you can afford $10/month the creative cloud photography program is excellent. If that isn't an option then you can download the latest DNG converter and use it to create DNG copies of your raw files that you can use in Lightroom 3.
You need Lightroom 5.4 or later
you need to download the free Adobe DNG Converter version 5.4 or later, and use that program to convert your RAWs to DNGs and then import the DNGs into Lightroom
@dj_paige and @JimHess - Thanks so much for the advice!
