    CS2 and EOS 1D Mk 3, impossible?

    Martin Lyhagen
      Have CS2 and recently updated to Camera Raw 3.7
      which, I think is the newest, that supports the CS2.
      Won't work with RAW-files from EOS 1D Mk III. This is
      a catastrophe. Have a lot of files I cant open
      right now.
      Will Adobe fix this ASAP or do I have to buy CS3.

      Not very happy right now...

          Martin,

          No, Adobe is not going to "fix this", not "ASAP", and not ever. CS2 is not supported any more.

          Your choice is either to upgrade to Photoshop 10 (CS3) so that you can use ACR 4.1, or to download the free, stand-alone Adobe DNG Converter to convert the RAW files from your camera to DNG files, which you can then open in ACR 3.7 hosted by Photoshop 9.0.2 (CS2).

          The new features in Photoshop 10 and in ACR 4.1 are well worth the upgrade.

            OK, thanks for the answer.
            Though think this is a bit greedy of Adobe.

            "The new features in Photoshop 10 and in
            ACR 4.1 are well worth the upgrade."

            This is, I think, the big problem with the
            idea of not supporting older versions.
            What do ADOBE know about my needs for
            features??
            Will end up like MS Word, 10 billions of
            features no one knows how to use, all
            equally half-good.

              Use the free DNG Converter, then.

                Just how would you expect the Adobe programmers to get paid for the features we all ask for, as well as supporting your brand new Nikon??

                > What do ADOBE know about my needs for features??

                I don't know about you, but many of us ask for these new features.

                It's your choice to upgrade, but I don't see any point in whining ...

                  Martin,

                  The DNG converter is a free download. All you have to do is run your raw images through the converter and you have every feature that is available in ACR 3.7. You can complain all you want, but Adobe doesn't put new technology in old programs. As Camera Raw develops, Photoshop has to be modified to accommodate those changes. Surely you cannot expect Adobe to maintain old versions of software just so you don't have to upgrade. You purchase new cameras for the features and other improvements they have to offer. You don't expect Canon to provide you with all their new developments as a firmware upgrade for older cameras. Why should you expect Adobe to be any different?
