    Which version of LR for T6i

    707lineman Level 1

      I recently just got a new camera,  Have it set for Raw and JPEG formats.  After I pull the photos off of the camera using the EOS utility i get two files,  CR2 and JPEG


      I don't think i'm using the right versions of the software as LR 5.7.1 will not open CR2 Files


      Any help would be appriciated



      Rebel T6i

      LR 5.7.1 (Trial)

      Windows 7

          Cameras supported by Camera Raw


          The T6i was first supported in Lightroom 6. Version 5.7.1 will never be able to open those Raw files.


          Any reason you are running a trial version of 5.7.1? Adobe no longer sells it so you could not buy it if you wanted to unless you're buying old stock from a 3rd party which could be pirated.

            If you're getting raw and JPEGs when importing images from your camera then your camera is set up to shoot in raw+jpeg.


            Your version of Lightroom won't open raw files from your camera. You will need to upgrade to Lightroom 6 or CC.


            You also mentioned that you're running a trail of Lightroom. If you're running a trial just download the latest version of Lightroom and all will be fine ;-)

              You can download the free DNG converter and create DNG copies that Lightroom 5 will import. But, as has been indicated, there isn't anywhere that I know of that Lightroom 5 can be purchased anymore. You can purchase Lightroom 6 as a standalone program. However, it is no longer being updated and has reached its end of life. It will support the camera, but you will not have any support from Adobe. And as operating systems evolve it will eventually implode as well.

                Thank you all for the help,   I tried to update to the current version, but am running a 32 bit system haha.  I was able to dig up an older but 64 bit system and was able to edit and somewhat run Premier.   Shopping for a new system now as my gaming tower is no longer sufficient.


                Thanks again
