Cool. I took some shots in RAW, but I cannot get photoshop to open them. I have PS 5.5 and it says it will open RAW, but does not recognize the CS2 extension. I know that I need to upgrade, but is there anyway to make it backward compatible for the meantime?
Several separate issues here.
1) In the two attempts above to correct the Original Post, each failed by leaving a noticeable blue-green pallor to the left side of his face.
2) Older Photoshop may not be able to accomodate newer RAW formats. However, some of the problems will be resolved by first using the free program "DNG" to create a universal RAW format version of the original RAW file. Then, subsequent to that, you will take your most current RAW program and see if it will open the DNG file. That has resolved many such problems, but may not work for you.
3) I would not consider using the RAW + JPG mode because it serves no earthly purpose to store both in the camera, provided you have a working RAW program like Adobe Camera RAW plugin for Photoshop. Of course, if you do not have any way to convert your RAW to JPG, you must wait until you are so equipped.
4) Meanwhile, let me remind you that the program, "Digital Photo Professional", free with all Canon EOS cameras does open and edit the RAW files.
