I have recently bought a Canon EOS 650D (upgraded from the 550D) and take all my pictures in the RAW (CR2) format. Unfortunately, although I have installed the latest upgrades for Photoshop Elements 10 my new 650D photos are apparently not supported - or when I attempt to open I get a message to the effect that they are the wrong format.

I have attempted to install camera RAW 7 and 7.1 (which I understand includes new cameras such as the EOS 650D) but this does not appear to be compatible with Elements 10. So, at the moment I have no way to process my RAW files. Has anyone else come across this problem and can assist in finding a solution.

I have tried to contact Adobe UK about this but so far they're shown no interest.

Yes with your camera you should have received a copy of DPP on a CD, install it and use it. you will find its a more flexible, and I would say better, RAW converter than the one that ships with Elements. It just has a different user interface. You can set it up such that you browse and view the RAW files in DPP and when you are ready to convert it can open Elements 10 with the converted image ready to edit.

Its a common issue with new cameras.

PLEASE DON'T SHOUT!

I think Elements 10 only supports RAW 6.x which may explain why you cannot open images from CameraRAW 7. When you have done the work in CRAW7, are you converting to JPEG for further processing?

You could use Adobe's DNG Convertor utility to convert your CR2 files to DNG, which Elements should be quite happy to read.

I also recommend that you try DPP. Here's some fabulous Canon DPP tutorials to get you started:

I use Adobe DNG converter (free from their website) for incompatible files in PSE 8......works every time !!

I've tried Canon's DPP, but I just don't like it ??????

Hello Niknut,

why don't you like DPP? For starters it is designed for EOS cameras.

I tried to use DPP too when I bought the S100 as E9 didn't support the RAW files but it seemed so clunky compared with ACR that I had to give in and upgrade to E10. I vowed it was the last time I'd do that a I don't like the idea of being locked in to Adobe so if I ever get another camera I'll try DPP again. Not my converter of choice though.

You've got to learn the workflow (the videos help). I hated DPP when I first used it. Actually I hated Photoshop when I first used that, found it really confusing compared to PSP and DPaint, not now though.

Hi Frank......I had Canon's DPP on disc with my D50, installed it & used it a few times, but it doesn't have the slick layout & logical
workflow of Adobe Camera RAW, which I've always used.......

DPP just doesn't seem to have the level of control finesse ??.....so I uninstalled it !....no point in having two RAW processors !!

It's just personal preference.......

Agree with Keith on this. Have tried DPP and ACR and found I got on better with ACR and that it suited my preferences better.

It has a logical layout, just not the Adobe one. If you give it a try you will find it has features that Adobe do not offer on the ACR that comes with elements plus I think it provides a better balance of detail v's noise reduction. add in the handy lens correction features for the lower costs lenses or compacts and its far better. But it does take some time to get used to. Its not as good as capture 1 but ahead of the elements version of Camera RAW.

Take a look at RawTherapee Here you will find a program that will read and extract RAW files in a similar way to LightRoom, DPP and Capture1, only much cheaper!!!........FREE!!!

It's not for everyone, but it does the job well with most camera RAW formats....
