CR2 RAW Files/Photoshop CS2/Graphics Programs
Posted on 2006-11-06
I have a very new Canon Rebel XTi which is in addition to my Canon 10d.
Over the weekend I took some 300 pictures with my new camera. I came home and downloaded them into my main computer. Lo & behold I quickly found out that Photoshops CS2 would not open the files. Seems Canon changed the RAW file format from .CRW to CS2.
I have put in CS2 the latest Photoshop plug in which should allow CS2 to read this format but it does not. there seems to be differences in the CR2 format from camera to camera, as there is a difference, I've recently read, between the CR2 format used in the Canon 5d and the Canon Rebel XTi.
Seems like only a very small handful of programs are able to read this newer format. Canon's software will read it but it is only a very basic program. The only software of any merit that will use it is something called bibble. Bibble is difficult to use and is time consuming.
Does anyone know of a way to make CS2 see these CR2 files and/or a program that will effeciently and effectivly be able to see, correct and not be so complicated as to slow down the work flow?
Thanks in advance!
