    CS3 & Camera RAW 5

    Btphoto86

      I want to make sure I have this correct.

       

      -CS3 is uncompatiable with camera RAW 5

      -There are no undates that will make it compatiable

      -Converting my camera RAW 5 files to DNG files is the only why to make them work in CS3

      -If I was wish to aviod converting all my files to DNG I must upgraded to CS4 to read camera RAW 5

       

      Is that all correct?

       

      If so, is there an inexpensive way to upgrade my Photoshop and Bridge CS3 to CS4.

       

      Thanks,

      Brady

          Define "inexpensive"...if you have a license to CS3 you can upgrade to CS4 for USD$199.00

            That seems inexpensive enough if I can upgraded

            my entire desgin sweet package for that price. Or even just photoshop and bridge.

            I assume I find that upgraded somewhere on Adobe's website.

            Any idea where?

              Brady,

               

              An upgrade of the entire suite from CS3 to CS4 would cost considerably more. I have used Photoshop since ver 3 and also bought Indesign 1 or 2. I was able to purchase the entire Academic version CS3 suite (outright purchase, not an upgrade) for a good price, hardly more than upgrading PS and Indesign separately. When you upgrade Photoshop, you have to insert a disc from a previous version to prove previous ownership, and the upgrade did not appear to accept my PSCS3 DVD and I had to use the PSCS2 disc as proof. There may be a workaround, but you should check this out if you do not have previous versions of PS.
