Give people more than 18 minutes to answer. :rolleyes:

No, you cannot convert raws through PSE6. Unless you have Lightroom, Aperture, Photoshop with ACR, or any of a myriad of third party raw converters, you will need to use DPP or Zoom/ImageBrowser.

Why can you not convert raw files in PSE6? I have never had any trouble converting raw files with PSE4.

I dunno. I figured it was a crippled PS6, which doesn't read RAWs, as far as I know. PS7 (which I have) definitely doesn't. Although I don't even know if you're meaning PSE as in Photoshop Essentials or PSE as in Photoshop Elements.

I was assuming Photoshop Elements 6.

You're probably right. Software versions aren't my forte.

If you download the ACR plug-in you can process raw files.

Yes, once and for all, Photoshop Elements CAN process RAW files.

Just like with CS2/3 you must have a version of the ACR plugin that is compatible with both your Camera's RAW files AND the version of Photoshop you are using. (In fact, its the SAME EXACT plugin that CS2/3 uses... just certain important functions such as camera calibration are missing when you use it in Elements.)

That said... I think the results are better, and more easily attained using the software that came with your camera DPP (Digital Photo Professional.) At least for me, ACR gives a strong color shift from Red to Orange, and without being able to set a camera calibration in Elements, it gets old VERY quick dealing with that.
