I have have an Imac desktop computer and am currently running on CS5. I own a Canon Rebel T5i and when I try to edit my photos in camera raw I receive an error. I tried to call customer support and they told me that I needed to download an update version 7.4, however the newest one I am able to fine is 6.7 which is the current version I am using. Is there anything that I can do because the 7.4 DNG converter is the only thing available and I an unaware of what this does.
The DNG converter is a standalone version of Camera Raw. If your PS is too old, than that's your only option short of upgrading.
The DNG converter is a standalone program that will read your raw images and create DNG (digital negative) copies of those raw images. The DNG files contain the original raw image data. And you will be able Open those DNG files with your older version of Camera Raw and use all of the features in the version that you have. The DNG converter is NOT a standalone Camera Raw. But it creates a copy of your raw images that contains the raw image data in a format they can be used with older versions of Camera Raw.
