RAW and Photoshop CS

I have tried searching here but can't seem to find the answer -

I have in the past opened a RAW file in PS, but if course I know that all RAW is not the same. I have downloaded the DNG converter and the RAW 2.4 update, and I still can't seem to open .cr2 files. Is it even possible with Photoshop CS??

Please, help, anyone - bout to pull my hair out!

Also, my 30D gets here Wednesday, and I need to know - is it best to use the software that comes with it, or can I use PSCS to convert?

Thanks, ya'll. As you can tell, my RAW experience is very limited. Any help is much appreciated!

Dawn

Re: RAW and Photoshop CS

Ok - got it. My fault. I was trying to use the newer CS2 version of the plugin file. I changed it back to the CS verions and after using the newer version of the DNG converter, it's working.

I'd still love some input on the 30D, whether it is best to use the Canon software or CS for conversion, or is it just personal preference?

Thank You!!!

Dawn

Re: RAW and Photoshop CS

OK great !
The problem with the Canon software is that it's very very slow if you have a lot of raw conversion to do.
I prefer to use ARC for the workflow, and the quality it delivers is excellent - at least to my eyes -. You can try C1 (capture one, from Phase One) also (they have a trial version that you can downoload) , it gives superb results.

DPReview compares ACR vs a camera's bundled software in their reviews of cameras. Might be useful and ACR usually looks better in their tests IMO.
