Can others edit my Photos
Photos NOT OK to edit
I have the new Canon 60d and love it. However I can't get the raw files to show in Bridge or be recognized and load to Photoshop CS4? They will show in Canon photo professional and I can convert the batch to Jpg which destroys the point of shooting in Raw. I am using Vista 64 and have updated all programs. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Oh the raw codec is the newest 1.7
That is because you need the Camera Raw 6.2 update. Well actually you need CS5 because that is the only version of Photoshop that the Camera Raw 6.2 update works for. :D From Adobe:

Refer to the following ReadMe file for other updates in this version:

The Camera Raw 6.2 plug-in is not compatible with versions of Photoshop earlier than Photoshop CS5.

Enjoy your new version of Photoshop when you get it. :mrgreen:
The workaround is to convert the files to DNG using Adobe's DNG converter, and then open those.
Canon DPP will convert raw files to tiff files which can be opened in PS. Since tiff files are not compressed, and also can be saved as 16 bit if you want, you are not losing anything with this approach. DPP provides a lot of control over the raw conversion, but if you feel you really must use ACR to process your raw files, then you'll have to go one of the routes suggested above.
