    What sort of RAW images. Every camera has its own RAW file format. CS2
    will certainly not recognise images from a camera that was released
    after support for CS2 ceased.

    Sounds like you need to download the latest RAW for CS2 at this site.

    http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/product.jsp?platform=windows&product=39

    If you installed from scratch you may not have support for cameras released
    after CS2 was released. CS2 will never support the cameras release from when
    CS3 was released, such as a Canon 1D Mark III or 40D. and yes, some of use
    are very pissed about this!

    I refuse to use the copy of CS3 I bought as it's just too slow on my "only"
    one-year old Dell D820 Windows XP machine with 3GB RAM installed.

    I use the latest DNG converter from Adobe.com to convert files from both of
    those cameras to DNG so I can process these files from RAW with CS2. The
    conversion takes a while but I can really whip through my old workflow at a
    fast pace once the conversion is done.

    I'm tempted to switch to Apple just to run CS3 and Lightroom at a reasonable
    speed, as I've seen on my friends year-old Apple notebook, even if it meant
    I had to buy CS3 and Lightroom again for the Apple version...

  4. Some RAW formats are supported by vanilla installations of CS2 - out of the
    box so to speak, but most aren't.
    My camera is a Fuji and it's RAW files are in RAF format. This meant I had
    to download a 3rd party plugin for Photoshop.
    I can't remember if I got it from Adobe's website or Fuji's website, but
    that should give you a starting point and narrow it down to two sites.
    Either Adobe.com or your camera manufacturers site.

    My Fujifilm S2 RAF files are fully supported by CS2, but many of the
    Fuji's P&S camera RAF files are not, because the cameras were
    released after support for CS2 finished, or because Adobe simply
    decided not to support those cameras. As i said, a new camera coming
    out this week will certainly not be supported by CS2, Adobe may well
    write the code for CS3 but they no longer support CS2.

    Damn right there!
    The worrying thing here is that the camera makers have not in anyway
    commited to DNG. As I understand it, and I could well be wrong, the
    idea was that all the camera RAW formats would go away and the
    cameras would produce DNG files. This has not happened. Adobe could
    well decide that DNG is not worth the committment and cease support.

    All very confusing really.

  7. My Fuji is an S5600, and I got RAW support from this download.
    It's the last (and so therefore most up-to-date) RAW plugin for CS2.

    It's a shame that they aren't supporting CS2 anymore, but then again, I
    suppose they have to set a cut-off date somewhere.

    Third party plug-in RAW for CS2? I have never heard of any plug-in but
    CS2 comes with ARC and Adobe often UPGRADE the ARC to support newer RAW
    format. CS2 itself doesn't do RAW but RAW Converter does.

    You just go to Adobe site to upgrade to latest ARC and it should do, also
    Adobe and most companies may only try to keep up with most popular hardware
    (camera), so if your camera isn't popular then you may have problem getting
    supported from many companies.

    I too hope and wait for the day all companies start using a standard RAW
    format instead of each uses its own format, and worse yet different RAW
    format for different model.

    Adobe DNG is probably a good way to go, but I guess others don't use DNG
    because DNG may not be free but company may have to pay Adobe some FEE?

    Have another problem now. Can not save a tiff file as jpeg file. In the save
    as window only about 4 different selection come up in the window. I have no
    problems with raw files shot with cannon 10D or 20D

    I thought DNG was completely open and free. Some have said companies will
    not adopt it because it's too open, which would make it easy to reverse
    engineer the camera files. stupid, really. As far as software programs,
    most of the major image editing programs are supporting DNG for example
    Photo Mechanic and many others. However I wish Canon's DPP would support
    DNG.

    If I guessed right your files are 16-bit

    Try the Save for web which will automatically reduce to 8-bit, or change the
    mode to 8-bit and save for jpeg will be available again.
