    Open Photoshop and when you try to open a RAW frle the ACR program will start automatically.

    Yes, it's really just a function of Photoshop. You may need to update A.C.R. if your version does not support your particular camera.

    I haven't used Lightroom, but AFAIK, it's more of a workflow program that is good for dealing with large amounts of RAW files (or JPEG, I assume).

    I recently upgraded to a D200. Now my RAW files are "not the right kind of
    document" when I try to view them. Still works for my D70 files, but not for
    the D200. Do you think this is simply an update issue?

    I beta tested Lightroom and wasn't very impressed with it. From what I have seen of Windows Vista it will take care of all my organization needs for photos. As far as being able to edit photos in Lightroom... it really wasn't all that fast. Photoshop will preview things faster and as long as you don't close the program after every photo.. launching is faster as well.

    I'm running into the same problem with my Rebel XT.

    I'm using Photoshop CS, and I've downloaded the 2.4 ACR plugin, which is supposed to be the latest and should allow me to open RAW, but I get the *not right kind of document* message still.

    Any suggestions? The CR2 file extension shows up in the acceptable formats, but it just won't open.

    As I understand it, 3.7 works with CS2. I have CS, and as best I can tell from Adobe's website, 2.4 is the latest for that version.

    I tried the 3.7, but I'm still running into the same problem. This is confusing!
