I just got my XSi yesterday, went to shoot a concert, and for the first time shot in RAW. But I connected it to my computer, and it cannot read the files, even with CS2. If I cannot get them, that's over 200 pictures that are lost.

Anyone!?!

I think you need ACR 5.3 or later not 100% sure..best way would be to open in DPP and save to tiff: then open in CS2..

I don't have any of the software, the camera was bought slightly used and did not have manual or discs included.

CS2 is too old to read them natively but you can convert them using Adobe's Digital Negative Converter first.

It's free: http://www.adobe.com/p​roducts/dng/ (external link)

Not to worry.

Go here http://www.usa.canon.c​om …cameras/eos_dig​ital_rebel (external link)

Select drivers & software

Select your OS

Then download the most recent version of DPP (Digital Photo Professional 3.8.1)

Then download Canon RAW, Zoom Browser, Picture Style Editor, and EOS Utility. (these are the programs that come on the Canon disc)

After you install all of that set the EOS Utility to manage your file transfer from your camera to your pc from now on. It's very easy, the next time you connect your camera a window will pop up and ask you what to do. Select EOS Utility and go from there. Then, use DPP to view the RAW images. From there, you can convert them into jpeg or tiff files and edit them in CS2.

He will have to have a Canon disk in the drive before the updates will install, and he has none of them..:cool:

Ah yes, this is another option as well. DPP will not create a DNG file. Then you should be able to open the DNG files in CS2.

Oh crap! Sorry, about that....I thought they were the full version software installs. Surely there is a way to get DPP from Canon in a download.

If you download Picasa from Google it should read your RAW files as well. It's free and you actually get a bit more than you pay for. It also allows you to save them to a new format if you want.

there's none... you must have the original full software installed, only updates are available online.

Canon has a free program called Digital Picture professional, pretty good program IMO and will edit and convert RAW files.
