I just purchased a Canon G9 camera with RAW image capability. When I try to open a RAW file in Photoshop (version 8.0) I get an error message: "Could not complete your request because it is not the right kind of document"
Any help will be greatly apprectiated!
Well, you have the old Photoshop CS (8.0), which supports only ACR 2.4. (ACR = Adobe Camera Raw.)
Your camera generates raw files that require ACR 4.3 to open directly in Photoshop. Therefore, you will never be ablo to open the raw files from that camera directly in Photoshop CS (8.0).
You have two choices:
• You can download the free, stand-alone DNG Converter 5.3 and run it to convert your raw files to raw DNG files first, which you can then open in ACR 2.4 hosted by Photoshop CS.
• You can upgrade to CS4 and open your files directly in ACR 5.3 hosted by Photoshop CS4.
Ramón -- The DNG 5.3 Converter worked like a charm! Thank you so much!!
