Which version of Photoshop (and do you mean CS or Elements)?

Your XTi requires that your Adobe Camera Raw plugin be version 4.4.1 or higher (the newest Adobe Camera Raw plugin is version 4.6, which also works with your camera). You can download the latest version of Camera Raw here (and you'll see instructions on how to install it, which is basically unzipping the download and copying the Camera Raw .8bi plugin to the correct folder):

But, Camera Raw 4.x versions require CS3 (and they'll also work with Elements 5 or 6). If you're using an older version of Photoshop (CS2, etc.), then it's not going to be able to convert your raw files. There are some alternatives if that's the case. Let us know what Photoshop version you're using and we can go from there.

You'd have to upgrade to Elements version 5 or 6 to use a newer version of Adobe Camera Raw (like 4.6) capable of supporting your camera model.

If you had Elements 3 or 4, there is a work around you could use (convert the .cr2 files to .dng files using the free Adobe DNG converter, then convert the .dng files to jpeg or tiff using Elements). IOW, it would be a two step conversion. But, Elements 2 is too old to do even that now.

If Canon's DPP doesn't meet your needs (it should have been included with your camera) for raw conversion, I'd look at some of the free converters around if you don't want to upgrade to a newer version of Elements (I'd go Elements version 6 so you'd be able to use the lastest Camera Raw plugin without jumping through hoops if you upgraded).

For a good free converter, look at Raw Therapee:

In a commercial product, I'd try Bibble Pro:
