The SX60HS was first supported in Camera Raw 8.7 which is only compatible with Elements 13 (and later).
You either need to upgrade to Elements 13 or download the free Adobe DNG converter, convert all SX60HS Raw files to DNG format then edit the DNGs in Elements 12
Thank you John for your help.
1. I have downloaded 8.7 and yes it doesn't work in elements 12, so I have used it as a stand alone software to convert my sx60hs Raw photo files.
2. I have also purchased the elements 13 upgrade and that should arrive in the next couple of days.
Thank you very much for your help.
You can download the Elements 13 trial version right now and install it.
When your boxed Elements 13 arrives, just launch the Elerments 13 trial and enter your serial number. No need to re-install.
Yes you were correct, I down loaded the elements 13 trial and my boxed edition arrived this morning and I entered the key code and now I have done a latest update my elements 13 now I have camera raw 9. and my shots taken in raw on my Canon sx60hs work ok.
Thanks again my friend for your guidance
