Serious post this time, Do as Cambirder has suggested and load the RAW convertor from the disks that came with your camera, OR ask Santa for a nice new copy of Adobe Photoshop CS3.

Job done.

Its a black CD with Canon printed on it. It has a number of programs on it including Digital Photo Professional which is what you need.

If you cant find it you can download it from the Canon UK website.

Hi Jim

The guys are pointing you in a good direction. Try a later version of Photoshop Elements (5 or 6) and this will allow you to use the later versions of the Adobe Camera Raw plugin albeit with some reduced capability.

Your 5D should have come with several programs incluing Digital Photo Professional (there are updates to that program to download) and Zoombrowser. The latter has a facility to download the images from the card. Now, you don't want to connect the camera to the PC, the WIA driver only works for JPEG, you want to use a card reader that will show up as an additional drive on your pc. Put your card in, open the DCIM folder and you will see the sub-folders containing your raw files.

I suspect this may be where your problem lies.

Elements 3 will read raw files. Is the problem getting them onto your PC or just opening them once they are there?
