I don't do forums will an answer come through to my email? I want to discuss options of upgrading my elements to either lightroom, photoshop or 13 but cannot find the answers on the site as I keep going in circles. I cannot find any customer service options as these all keep putting me back to forums (which as I understand it are just individual opinions - no offence meant).
I have upgraded to a canon 5d mkiii and my raw files now will not read. I usually edit on a stand alone machine not connected to the internet - I back up on an independent drive. I want to know what is compatible with what so that I don't make a mistake as it would be a pain to lose all the files I have and the tags etc. Can anyone help?

Photoshop Elements MAY work for you, since it is not part of the Cloud
