The D40 came out long after Photoshop CS was no longer supported or updated by Adobe. If you don't have plans to upgrade your Photoshop, the best thing to do is download the latest version of the DNG converter. It is packaged with ACR, and the current version is 4.1. You can use the DNG converter to create Digital Negative copies of your raw images, and those can be opened with Photoshop CS as long as you have ACR (Adobe Camera Raw) 2.4 installed. Go to Help/About Plug-Ins and click on Camera Raw. If that screen indicates that your version is older than 2.4, then go to the link at the top of the forum and download the update. Be sure to follow the installation instructions precisely.
Thanks a lot Jim!!! I will try that when I get home from the office.
Are there any capabilities lost by working around the system?
No, nothing is lost. The image data is still the raw data. It has just been put into standardized container file. Now you will be limited by the controls that are available in ACR 2.4. A lot has changed, and there have been many improvements. But to get all those improvements you would have to upgrade to Photoshop CS3.
>I adopted my computer from my brother. Installed on the maching was Adobe CS
Unless your brother transferred his Photoshop license to you and he is no longer using ANY version of Photoshop, you are running your copy of Photoshop illegally.
And Adobe's legal department knows it now. :/
