Recently 20D died and had to get 70D.
Laptop with windows XP and Pshop CS2, opens Canon 20D raw but refuses to open 70D raw.
Tower with win7 and Pshop CS6 opens 70D raw.
What do I need to open 70D with CS2 and have access to the raw adjustments etc ?
I am not by the way buying a new laptop as I have no money for anything, it must remain XP and CS2, unless I can install my CS6 onto XP ? It is not internet connected and cannot be.
The 70D was first supported in Adobe Camera Raw 8.2 (a plugin used by Photoshop to read Raw files) which is only compatible with CS6 and Cloud versions. CS2 will never be able to open Raw files from the 70D.
You can install CS6 on your XP laptop provided it is running SP3.
Download from Download Adobe Creative Suite 6 applications
Install then enter your serial number. CS6 ships with Camera Raw 7.0 so you may have to update Camera Raw to 9.1.1 (the latest version compatible with CS6).
