Dreading asking this but -

Mainly jpeg for my racing as explained previously BUT just thought I would give it a go in RAW to try out the f8 focusing etc, all went pretty good until I got how - fired up Photoshop CS5 Ext, went to open a raw file and
.
.
.
.
.
Yep you knew it was coming.
.
.
.
.
.
Wouldn't open it, gave me the 'not supported by the installed version of camera raw'. Okay I thought, help / updates / all up to date!!!!

Checked online, downloaded newest version of CR but it doesn't work, I am running a stupidly hi spec PC with win 7 x64 (hate win 10) photoshop CS5 ext, raw ver: 6.7.1.340.

Please tell me I don't have to fork out for another version of PS as this does everything I need it to (other than new raw files obviously) or win 10.

Help please

Thanks for the prompt reply - Sorry - is DPP canons software? never installed or used it in all the years I have been working digital.

If I do then I guess my photoshop is basically obsolete (or keep it just for my 5dmkIII raw files)

Sorry guys, not sure what this little guy is, just a group of first's / test's

1DXmkII (first shot in raw) 200-400 with the canon mkIII x2 extender (hand held) and first attempt 'ever' with dpp software. Does it work? or have I gone too far with the processing?

1/500, f/8, iso 320, 800mm

Any pointers greatly received.

It doesn't look too far to me.

However, if you prefer or are more comfortable with your PS workflow, it's only a small step to use DPP to convert your CR2 files in a batch to TIFF which you can then open in RS.

Doesn't quite solve your problem, but I learned that same problem years ago when I had PS 4, then needing to upgrade to PS 5 in order to work on RAW files as I was upgrading my camera bodies along the way.

It finally dawned upon me that it was cheaper/easier to just get Lightroom (which has become such a great photo editor) and do the very final touches as it can be linked to whatever version Photoshop when you export the images.

The only pisser is that my RAIDed harddrives crashed last summer and with it, went my stand-alone installation files for both Lightroom 6 and Photoshop CS 6. So I won't be able to install the softwares again if/when I am forced to upgrade my desktop in the coming years. I'd have to jump on to the subscription-based CC versions.

I am shooting with the 1DX mkII yes, racing shots are jpeg (as explained earlier in the post) but every now and then it would be nice to shoot a few stills in raw so being able to work on them in PS would have been great.

Posting in the 200-400 thread as well.

Still first day with the dpp software so please excuse them being a little 'rough around the edges'. Few more test shots to see how the system handled the 200-400 with extra 2x converter (hand held sorry) With the x2 fitted we have f/8 and the focusing is still pretty quick and the detail is quite nice even though I do say so myself.

#1 Too slow a shutter speed really but it did keep focus on the head at 800mm

IMAGE: https://photos.smugmug.com/Animals/Wildlife/i-MZwVLgn/0/234c55dc/XL/DPP%20test%20DSP_3690-XL.jpg

#2 Breakfast on the 'sway' def better at 1/1250

IMAGE: https://photos.smugmug.com/Animals/Wildlife/i-hTGcvHp/0/ae49aed9/XL/DPP%20test%20DSP_3712-XL.jpg

#3 Actually through a reed bed so yes - very happy

IMAGE: https://photos.smugmug.com/Animals/Wildlife/i-XjwRvqD/0/d8d60d2c/XL/DPP%20test%20DSP_3716-XL.jpg

#4 Last one - this was with the built in 1.4 engaged as well meaning f/11 manual focus - 9 times out of 10 as long as I was braced against something I would autofocus at 800mm /f/8 then flip the switch to give me the full 1120mm at f/11

As Julian's noted - Lightroom could be a good solution.

I'm still running Photoshop CS6 (the last standalone version I believe). I use the standalone version of Lightroom 6 to import and manage photos, and indeed for the vast majority of shots all the editing I need I can do within LR.

For those that require more work, there's an "Open in Photoshop" function, which brings the raw (that Lightroom has read) into PS; and if it's a version of PS that doesn't support that camera, it's opened as a 16bit TIFF or PSD with your colour space of choice. As far as I'm aware, it loses nothing over opening the file directly in a modern version of PS with the same settings (they both use Adobe Camera Raw [ACR]).


Camera, some lenses, too little time, too little talent

My wife and I finally gave up and went with Adobe Creative Cloud. It's $120/year, but B&H occasionally has it on sale for $90/year. So that's $7.50 to $10 per month per person, which isn't much compared to what we've spent on equipment. Or dinners out. Or Keurig cups. ;-)a

Adobe CC includes Lightroom and Photoshop, and it gets updated pretty quickly when new equipment is released. I don't like subscription software, but it has worked out well for both my wife and myself.

We do use DPP to make the initial pass through our photos to delete the losers. It's much faster to do that in DPP than importing the raw files into Lightroom and evaluating them there.


Image editing ok; C&C always welcome.
