Default Does Elements 8 support the E-520 RAW ?

I am fairly sure the answer is YES But
Does Elements 8 support the E-520 RAW files for processing ?
I THINK I have to download the ACR plugin before I can edit RAW files.


Thanks in advance
Fred..

If you already have Elements 8, you should also have the Adobe Camera Raw plug-in since Elements 8 ships with ACR version 5.5. Meanwhile E-520 ORF. files are supported with versions 5.0 as well as all later versions.

At the outside, you may have to download an ACR Raw plug-in update.

Fyi, it is now Elements 9. Also, I think the Adobe Camera Raw provided with it is a stripped version of the one found in the "pro" version.

Hi,
You are correct, in that the ACR RAW loaded with Elements is not as robust as the CS5 version of Photoshop. But, it will allow for the post processing of RAW files from an E-520 without issue.

As for the version, I didn't know if Fred already had a copy of Elements 8 or not. That's why I decided to stick to the question posed. I have elements v8.0 and while I no longer use it as CS5 is, frankly better, it was easy to make sure it would do what Fred had asked.
