How can I open CRW files from Photohshop CS

Discussion in 'Digital Darkroom' started by hearst, Sep 16, 2004.

  1. I just got a nice new Canon S70, which has RAW capability. It makes
    CRW files. I downloaded them in two ways from a compact flash
    reader: directly using Windows Explorer, and using Canon Zoom
    Browser. I can open the CRW files in Zoom Browser, process them,
    and convert them to .tiff files - no problem. But I'd like to use
    the Photoshop CS RAW capability. When I try to open the CRW files
    in Photoshop it says "Could not complete your request because it is
    not the right kind of document." But lots of sources say that
    Photoshop CS can process CRW files. Anybody know how to do it?
  2. Hi Joe, Unfortunately all RAW files are not created equal - even within the same general brand of digital camera like Canon. So Adobe must update Photoshop CS practically every time a new camera comes out. Hopefully they'll have an update for CS that supports the S70's RAW files. You'll need to go to Adobe's site to check. Good luck!
  3. At PhotoshopWorld two weeks ago Adobe mentioned that there will be an update in of the
    Camera Raw plug-in in the next 30-45 days
