    i have cs3 and i have been shooting in raw recently but when i put the files in photoshop it won't let me open them... any ideas. the format is .cr2 but the thing is that i can open raws that are the same format that i had taken with my rebel. any ideas?

    You don't open the disk image file with Photoshop, you open it with finder and copy the plug-in file it contains to your Library/Application Support/Adobe/Plug-Ins/CS3/File Formats folder as instructed in the linked document.

    Just follow instructions, should only take a few minutes ;)

    Updating Photoshop CS3 ACR Plugin

    open finder > mac HD > Apps > PS CS3 folder, open it and there is a plugin folder within :)

    Have you tried converting the CR2 files to DNG? Something like Canon DPP works fine for that.
