    I think i need to add a upgrade (?) to Photoshop CS to open RAW files taken
    on a 5D, can someone confirm which file?

    You can't. CS can't use the later versions of the Adobe
    Camera Raw (ACR) plugin, ACR 2.4 is the last version

    You can however download the latest (3.5) version of ACR
    plus the stand-alone DNG converter program that comes with
    it. Discard the ACR plugin but use the DNG converter to
    convert your Canon raw files to DNG.

    Ensure you have ACR2.4 installed and the DNGs will open with

    You need Photoshop CS2 to work with ACR 3.4. Get the upgrade CS2 is a
    has some very nice features, one of the biggest is a healing brush that
    doesn't need a start point (I scan a lot of slides from old slide
    presentations). I believe it is $160 from Adobe, available on most SW
    shopping sites.

  7. I should be getting a 5D tomorrow, and wonder if Lightroom handles the
    RAW files from it without having to go through DNG? Or are there any
    steps I need to take to make it so?

    I should be getting a 5D tomorrow, and wonder if Lightroom handles the
    It does, and I'm convinced that Beta 4 is better than Aperture
    (pre-1.5) or the latest Capture One, both of which I've used
    extensively. Lightroom Beta 4 is great (I use a 20D, but the software
    should be no different with 5D RAW), and it allows me to "save"
    important images from my archives that Aperture, CaptureOne, ACR, and
    Lightroom 3 could do nothing for. It is great software, but I warn:
    using it may lock you into a need to buy it when your beta expires (I
    know I'm in that boat... I cannot imagine going back).

  10. Thanks. I rather like it as well, and I will probably buy the commercial
    release, as well as PS CSIII next year. But I am taking courses, and
    will continue with the student thing for at least another year.

    It's supposed to arrive today, and it's a bit like waiting for Santa.....
