Having a Problem Reading Raw Files
from Your New Camera

provided by George Burke

Every camera has a different raw format.  As new cameras come out, Adobe keeps updating it's raw
converter to accommodate them.  However, these updates only work with the LATEST VERSION of
Photoshop.  So, you have to upgrade in order to be able to use the raw images from your new camera
in Photoshop.

There is a free solution.  Use Adobe's free DNG converter.  DNG is Adobe's  universal raw format.
It converts your existing camera raw files to ones that can be read by any version of Photoshop.
The DNG Converter is a standalone program that will convert an entire folder of camera raw images
to DNG type raw images.

You can get it for a PC at:

The Mac version is available at:

There are several advantages to using dng files, even if you have the latest version of
Photoshop or Elements.

  • DNG files do not have a "sidecar" (.xmp) file.  All the changes made in the raw converter and Lightroom are saved in the DNG file.  No more problems in sending raw files to someone, not sending the sidecar file (it's invisible), and having the recipient only be able to view the original unedited file.
  • DNG files are about 20% smaller than raw file formats from camera manufacturers. That saves a lot of hard disk space.
  • Adobe has put the DNG format in the public domain, so anyone can use it at no cost, and promises to maintain it forever. There is no guarantee that several years from now a camera manufacturer, will still maintain a raw format for your (by then) obsolete camera.  (Remember, every camera has a different raw format.)

AN ALTERNATE SOLUTION: Lightroom can import any type of raw image in a DNG file.
