    I just got a copy of Photoshop CS2 and when I download my RAW images onto the computer and try and open them with CS2, CS2 says that it cannot open because,

    "could not complete your request because it is the wrong type of document"

    Right now CS2 is not recognizing my Serial number, so could it possibly be limiting what I can work on? Or is this just another issue that I am screwing up somewhere. This is a real pain and its been driving me nuts. The camera is a D200 and its set to RAW, not fine normal or basic, but just RAW.

    Any help would be much appreciated.

    CS2 not recognizing your serial number is a definite problem... You should probably try to call Adobe about that.

    I'm not really sure what that error message means though

    Eh well I've gotta get around that some other way probably. I can get a keygen or a serial number offline somewhere. I just read somewhere that Nikon's RAW files need to be converted to Tiff's... I'm lost, very very lost.

    Are tiffs the same as RAW files and can they be edited the same way?

    No. RAW files are proprietary to the manufacturer and specific camera. Your raw definitions in Bridge/CS2 might not have the data for your particular camera and you may need an update for CS2/Bridge to recognize your D200.

    Under the Help menu on CS2 is a choice for 'program update' ... click that to download current updates (assuming you have a legal copy). If that doesn't work, not sure what to do next short of calling Adobe.

    .... oooh ... just noticed the part where it says CS2 is not recognizing your SN ... that might be a problem when you try to get updates ... is your copy legal?

    its a legal version of CS2 but downloaded in a semi illegal fashion :)

    I am going to get a new copy and try it again.

    It is either a legal copy or, a pirated copy, there is no in between.

    Could be a legal boxed copy, lost the disc or it was scratched or damaged, and so he downloaded via torrent but used the legal serial and activation numbers. Give him the benefit of the doubt.
