  • Oly RAW Format problems

    Hi,
    since getting my own EPL-1 I've run into problems trying to open my RAW image files by using my copy of Photoshop, CS3 version...........

    Basically I can't do this !
    CS3 does'nt recognise the Oly RAW Format, so i end up opening my files using oly's "ib" software that came with my camera, then having to save them as something that CS3 does recognise.

    A bit longwinded !:\

    Is there any new/ updated Adobe software 'plugins' to do this more easily

    Or am i stuck doing it the only way i know ?

    Any advice, feedback, suggestions would be greatfully accepted !

    Thanks in anticipation.

    It's the same issue as in this thread

    To use E-PL1 RAW files in CS3 you need to convert them to DNG format first.

    To be honest, the Adobe Camera RAW for Photoshop CS3 isn't brilliant. I'd download the beta 2 release of Lightroom 3, which will work until the end of June, or upgrade to CS4, or even Elements 7.

      I agree with Ian's advice - use dng (the converter is free from Adobe). Adobe is fairly quick with ACR updates but never makes them backwardly compatible. You need the most recent PS or Elements or LR.
