No...you'll need to convert to DNG using DNG Converter 5.2. Since Adobe has shipped CS4, no further updates will be done for CS3.
> Just got the 5D Mark II and have CS3 installed (Mac OS). Is there an update for Camera Raw - Photoshop cannot read the files
First, read this:
If this doesn't fix you up, please drop them a note in the 'Did this resolve
your problem?' to provide them with info so that they can update this TechNote.
This was posted a few days ago with the title:
"Unable to open camera raw file in Photoshop or Photoshop Elements?"
The link above would have lead to:
Just got the Canon Mark 11, realized my CS3 couldn't see the raw file, tried download 5.2 raw upgrade, nada, didn't work. Called Adobe, spent 1 hour, got transferred all over the world, mostly India didn't get an answer. Talk about frustration.
A tech from Adobe in Oregon said there was no upgrade for raw 5.2 for cs3 that I had to buy cs4 does anyone out there share the same experience?? Can it be true? Is there actually a solution other than buying CS4 (just bought cs3 in march 2008)
Any help is appreciated.
Download the FREE DNG 5.2 Converter...
Jeff just gave you the solution. You must first convert your raw files to DNG files with the latest version of the DNG Converter, 5.2.
Then you can open those DNG files with ACR (Adobe Camera Raw) 4.6 hosted by CS3.
You will never be able to open your Canon raw files from that camera directly in CS3. CS3 is not shipping anymore, so there will be no updates for it, ever. You will have to convert your files every time you shoot with that camera, until you upgrade to CS4.
However, Adobe Camera Raw 5.2 is soooooo far ahead of ACR 4.x, that upgrading to CS4 just to use ACR 5.2 is a no-brainer. I upgraded on that basis alone myself.
If you do upgrade, this book is highly recommended reading for you.
