New Camera RAW Format

2014.01 Canon P1080033I have learned, from DIY Photographer, that the Camera RAW 8.4 release is now available for CS6 and CC. I have CC at work, so this may help me there. I have CS5 at home, so no help at all for personal files.

My new DLSR camera takes RAW format photos, which is supposed to give me more post-processing options for digital photos. The files are huge. However, my version of Photoshop can’t open the RAW format files my camera is producing.

I am told that the software that comes with my camera is supposed to allow me to access the RAW files and edit them. I have installed the software but not started using it yet.

In the meantime, I am not taking photos in RAW format. I am concentrating on learning to use the camera and getting my images in the highest quality JPG it produces.
