You have to download the program from Pentax (www.pentaxcanada.com or www.pentax.com) that will allow you to convert the RAW images into a format that Photoshop will be able to import.

I think the download is free.

Take care & Happing Imaging!

I bought a cannon camera EOS 70D, when i use PhotoShop Elements 10, i cannot open the image if the image was taken in RAW.


Hi found a manual for PhotoShop Elements 10 here:
http://help.adobe.com/en_US/photoshopelements/using/photoshopelements_10_help.pdf
It is a pdf file which can be saved to disk for future reference and contains (page 53) a paragraph below:
"Prefer Adobe Camera Raw For Supported Raw Files Ensures that all the supported raw files are opened with Adobe
Camera Raw instead of other software. Select this option if you have added other plug-ins to Plug-Ins folder"
It may be that you have to load the relevant plug-in in order to load these files, or load this plug-in before attempting to load the RAW file.
Hope this helps

Hi ive recently had to reinstall my harddrive in my computer and reload the olympus software ,the serial codes that came with my camera dont seem to work any more this may be due to the age of the camera...


If the camera software is opening and working on your new computer hard drive then the problem is the camera "firmware" being non compatible with the new system.

This can be solved by stepping around the camera as a download device by purchasing a memory card reader. This reader is plugged into a USB port on the computer and the memory card is plugged into it, the computer looks at this as a mass storage device. Your picture files can then be stored in folders on your hard drive.

Okay if the camera software is not working on the computer (which is now surprise) I would strongly suggest purchasing an Adobe Photoshop program. Elements, is a basic image program software and it will allow you to do everything and more than what your camera software was allowing you to do with the pictures. You will still need to purchase a card reader to get the pictures from the camera to the computer.

Nice part of going this route is that when you purchase a new camera the reader and programing can still be used.

As a Professional Photographer I'm using both Mac and PC, the image software I use on the PC is Elements, Elements 5 (it opens RAW files) and Photoshop 7. Each program has something a little different or in the case of the Elements programing 5 allows me to open Camera RAW files.

My Mac is a different story I still use Photoshop CS3, CS4 and several updated add on and plug ins. What I'm saying is purchasing a Photoshop program is the best step to image software a person can make.

Photoshop is the "industry" standard and the programing can be inexpensive on an entry level or go into the thousands for more advanced users. Cheers have a great time with you camera.

Hi. Switched to RAW instead of JPEG, now unable to upload photos, is this because of files being RAW format? Is it possible to convert them (these are shots I need!). Thanks, N.


If your camera did not come with the software to convert RAW images, and your computer does not have a photo editing program with a raw converter built-in, there are editing programs you can purchase such as Photoshop Elements (about $99) that can do the job and much more.

I cannot get RAW file from my 1000D. It only save jpeg.


You need to have software on your computer to process the raw files. Your camera probably came with a software CD or you may have a program on your computer such as Photoshop Elements that can process the raw files.

I took some pictures with my Nikon D60 camera in raw format now i am unable to copy them to my hard disc


You need a software program installed on your computer to work with and convert raw pictures. An example would be Photoshop Elements. Usually, cameras that can shoot raw photos come with software on a cd to work with the photos.

Can't download to my laptop


First, you must set the camera to take RAW pictures. Check your manual for the correct procedure. Second, you must have a program on your computer to read the RAW files. Sometimes, cameras come with software to do this. Photoshop Elements and Photoshop are both capable of reading RAW files.

I'm unable to download photos from the disk.


You may be saving the images in the RAW format, which requires matching software to read. Most kiosks can't read them. If this is the case, switch back to jpeg format.

Are you using Photoshop or Photoshop elements? Most other imaging programs will not open raw files.

Open RAW files


1- Be sure your files from the Olympus are downloaded and stored on your hard drive. 2- Be sure you've updated Photoshop CS' Camera RAW to the latest version: go to http:// www.adobe.com/support/downloads/main.html and click on the OS platform of your choice for Creative Suite, pick the latest Camera Raw plugin to download. Install and you're ready to go. 3- Start up Photoshop CS. You can either use the File Browser to look at the directory where you have put the files from your camera, open them from there, or you can use the File->Open... menu commands to pilot your way there and just open the file you choose explicitly. Camera Raw will start automatically when you pick a .ORF file with either method.
