Please confirm me if I do this correct, take picture in raw file then download it to Canon digital photo professional to correct the color then convert it to jpeg to photoshop/edit the picture in CS4.
Why I can not photoshop/edit the picture in raw file before convert it to jpeg. My CS4 won't recongnize the raw file.
Thanks

You can do all your Raw processing in Digital Photo Professional (DPP). After that you can, if needed, send the file to Photoshop using the Tools/Transfer to Photoshop function. The image will open in the Photoshop editor as a tiff (it won't save the tiff until you save it in Photoshop.

The reason you can't open the Raw file in Photoshop is likely that your camera is newer than the version of Photoshop you are using -- you can run the Bridge Help/Update utility to see if that helps, but otherwise DPP should do just fine. When you process a Raw file in DPP, the adjustments will not be available outside of DPP until you either do the Transfer to Photoshop function or, alternatively, do a Convert and Save (or Batch Process) and convert to a tiff or jpeg.

But just be aware that DPP has some very nice processing capabilities for those Raw files. Take the time to learn to use the tools and you may find little need for Photoshop.

I believe version 5.7 of the ACR plugin will support the 7D, so as Tony said ^^, check for updates to Photoshop and this should install the latest raw plugin.

I looked it up and it looks like CS4 will support the 7D if you update Camera Raw, so that is the thing to do. In Bridge use the Help/Update utility.

DPP is still a nice tool to have and play with, though.

You need to update ACR, which I posted a link for.
