>Then I installed the Adobe DNG Converter and put it inside my Adobe directory
The DNG Converter is a stand-alone application. You can put it wherever you want. Your Applications Folder or your desktop are good locations for it.
Note that you need the very latest version of the DNG Converter, which is 5.1. Its version number is not tied to your version of Photoshop or ACR.
You do need ACR 2.4.
Thank you for your reply, Ramón.
I did install the very latest version of the DNG Converter: 5.1; and I did install Camera Raw 2.4.
Why do you think I am having problems opening up RAW images? Perhaps I am not doing it right. What I do is open my finder, then grab the RAW image that I created with my Canon G9. I then drop it on the Photoshop icon on my applications bar. That's when the error message pops up.
And when I try to load the same image in the DNG Converter, in DNG Converter 1. Select Folder, the RAW image inside the folder is gray and not selectable.
What could be the problem??

LOL! It's never going to work that way, Daniel. :D
Photoshop cannot open your raw files. Period.
You need to drop a raw file on the DNG Converter application, or better yet, launch the DNG Converter and point it (Command O) to a folder full of raw images.
Remember, the DNG Converter "Open" command works only on folders, not individual files. But you can drop individual files on the DNG Converter.
The DNG Converter will then create brand new DNG files that can be opened by ACR 2.4 or later hosted by Photoshop.
Ramón, I can laugh now, too. It worked! :D
But the first time that i dropped the converted file into Photoshop, I got that same error message (above). I immediately tried it again and yes, it opened!!
What a joy! Thank you so much, Ramón! My images will now be improving dramatically over JPG files.
You cna't select files in DNG Converter. You can select folders. That is why
the filenames are grayed out. DNG coverter is a batch conversion utility
working on folders. Not a file converter working on a single or selected
That's what post #3 says.
