Default Adobe CS3 will not open Raw files from my new 7D

I got my new 7D tonight, rushed out and took 3 photos in CR2 Raw. Now my CS3 will not open them up! It says that they are incorrect files!

The photos open up in the Canon Software and Picasa! What the heck?

I checked on Adobe's site and the Raw Converter 4.6 is all that is compatible with CS3. What do I do now?

I think (I may be wrong) you have to upgrade to CS5. If the latest plugins don't work then upgrading is needed, I think.


p.s. might want to think about Lightroom 3.4 Cheaper than CS5

Dennis is correct. When a new version comes out, Adobe tends to not add newer camera support to their older versions, so CS3 will NOT open the 7D's RAW files.

However, the 7d comes with software that will let you open the RAW files and ultimately get them into CS3 (DPP). Or you can use Adobe's DNG converter, and then open the .dng (their RAW format pushed by Adobe to get RAW files standardized) file in CS3. You can get DNG Converter free from them (and read more) here: http://www.adobe.com/support/downloa...jsp?ftpID=5024 ... their long listing on a different page shows the 7d is supported.
