Having just purchased a Canon 20D and software, I am unable

to use some Photoshop 6 functions...such as EXTRACT...even when

files have been converted to tiff or jpeg. Are there any updates or

plugins available which would afford full use of Photoshop 6 functions

with Raw files? Your help will be apprecaited. Thank you.

some functions in PS won't work until you converted the pictures from 16bit to 8 bit. maybe that solves your problem.

the raw conversion add on to PS only worked with PS version 7 and is no longer available. with version 7 the adobe raw conversion utility was and the word was is the key an optional $99 add on.version 6 is able to open tif and jpg along wit a few other formats natively but no raw.

photoshop CS has the raw conversion utility built in to it no but is technically an addon to it. it opens and converts raw very nicely and has some abilities that others don't

next month (may) photoshop CS2 will arrive and treat raw conversion as a native format in addition to the other accepted formats used today and allow a certain levelof functionality in that format. supposedly you as an owner of V6 will be able to update to CS2 for $149 and believe me it will be the best money youwill spendon editing tools. there are some major and fairly dramatic differences between v6 and cs and now cs2.

the only caveat is it does not run under win98 which is also a plus.

it is time to move to the next step.
