Default Photoshop 7 Camera Raw Plug-in doesnt work for the g5

I have PS7 with the the camera Raw ver.1 plug in, But I just bought a G5 and the plug in only supports the G3. Does anyone know how to make the plug in work for the G5 Raw files? I really dont want to spend the money again on the upgrade. Thanks

You would have to hack the code in a similar manner as it was done for the 10D.

You need a hex editor and you need to search for the code that designates model numbers and substitute the G3 code for G5 code. If you search the web for the 10D hack you'll find similar instructions. Always work on a copy of the file (plugin) not the original file.

actually you might want to rethink that. there are so many improvements to PS CS which includes ARC 2 that it is well worth the price. the changes in ARC 2 are rather impressive. it affords considerably greater control over your RAW images then before.

read it carefully. if you use RAW often you'll make the right decision.

you have the option of using thr canon RAW converter included with the camera. after a few hundred times you'll see the light.
