    Hello,
    Can anyone explain why when I try opening a Raw image in Photoshop CS a window opens saying Photoshop Raw options which contains boxes with named,dimensions channels & header if I just press OK I get a Window with just a grey banded image it reminds me of a test screen on a T V.I guess I should be inputing some figures in the options window, but how do I know what figures to input. I can open the images in Rawshooter as used in Digital Photo magazine.
    I would appreciate some help if anyone knows the answer.
    Many thanks,
    Alan.

    You are probably using a camera which CS cannot support because the ACR RAW plugin is not compatible Alan.

    A 'work-around' with CS is to convert the RAW file to 'DNG' and then CS ACR can work with the file in the 'normal' way.

    Try updating Adobe Camera Raw to the latest version from the Adobe site. They regularly bring out updates for the new cameras which all have different RAW files. If your camera's RAW file is not recognised then the converter won't convert.

    That won't work -

    - hence my response.

    Which camera are you using, you list two against your photos (a konica and a Panasonic Z30) If the panasonic is the FZ30 then it is suppoerted by ACR 3.0.7

    This is from the Adobe site -

    Aaah,

    In that case you could try:

    http://www.rawtherapee.com/

    which lists the FZ30 as compatible and is (to my mind) similar to if not more advanced than ACR

    Raw shooter reads the FZ30 files, does me very nicely...

    Just like to say thanks for all of your help, I havn,t had time to try any of the suggestions as yet, but I hope there's a solution here.
    One question though for Tooth the version of rawshooter I have is a cut down version I wondered do you use the full version?.
    Thanks,
    Alan

    I use essntials, prewsumably the "cut down" version you're talking about. how long have you had it? is it up to date?, as i suspect the FZ30 has only been added to its list relatively recently. Go to the help menu (little green question mark top left) and "check for updates"

    Hope that helps

    Hello,Stephen, I found a copy of Rawshooter Essentials 2006 on one of my old Digital Photo C Ds which states it is a full version. So I removed the old version & reinstalled this one I've had a quick go & all seems well, I've not updated it yet & your right the Z30 is listed.
    Will let you know what happens.
    Again thanks for your time,
    Alan
