Just wondering if anyone knows if Adobe released an update that allowed the processing of raw files from a 5DIII in ACR.

I have CS5 on my desktop PC that I usually use for editing, but I have an older version of CS4 on my laptop and would like to be able to have a play with my 5DIII images on the laptop on occasions when I don't have access to my PC.

I guess the alternative solution would be to install CS5 on my laptop, but I can't remember if the licence allows installation on more than one computer.

The license will let you install PS on 2 computers. Also you can have more than 1 version on the same computer if you want. The latest camera RAW is ver. 8.3 but I'm not sure how far back it goes per PS version.

That's useful. I'll have to dig out my disc and see what hoops I have to jump through to get it licensed on a 2nd computer.

If it has been awhile since you registered with Adobe, they may make you reset your password during the installation. I just installed CS6 on mine with a prior installment of CS3, so far so good. Would have been a walk in the park installation if Adobe didn't want me to reset my password during installation.

It looks like I will have to take that route. I've just ploughed through Adobe's website and discovered that the most up to date version of ACR available for CS4 doesn't support the 5DIII.

It's always something with Adobe!:D If you decide not to keep CS4 on your laptop, don't forget to deactivate it before uninstalling!

to add to Douglas, you can have it installed on as many computers as you like, but only activated on two. So if you have a pc at work and at home and also a laptop for travel, deactivate the one you don't need (work for example) while on your trip and activate the one on your laptop.

If CS4 does not read 5D3 raw files, you can use the canon software or ACR or LR etc to save the files in a different format like TIFF, then work in CS4


40D, 5D3, a bunch of lenses and other things :cool:

Yes, you can install CS5 on your laptop.

An alternative is to convert Raw files from newer cameras to the DNG format, but if like was suggested you only have two machines with the software installed/activated, then you should be good to go...

Just like to say thanks for all the advice and help guys. Installed CS5 on the laptop, and then had to update ACR to the latest version, but it's now reading my 5DIII raw files quite happily.

Use the free DNG Converter from Adobe to convert your raw format files to CS4 type of raw and there you have it. Newer raw can then be opened in CS4 or CS3 or 2, whatever you chose the conversion process to do.

He's all set now with CS5 on both machines!
