    Hello!

    I just got my 550d for my birthday today, and its absolutely fantastic, loving the low light performance and the video!

    However, i can't seem to open the raw files on photoshop or preview. I got the adobe raw update for CS4 but they still don't open :( Any ideas as to whats going on?

    Thanks a bunch, i hate having new stuff and it not working like it should be!
    Also, i shoot raw cause i want to - so dont go telling me too shoot jpeg, haha :p

    Camera raw 5.7 is known for 32-bit issues... 64-bit seems working ok though.

    The 550D/T2i was recently added to Camera Raw 6. You will need that so that photoshop can open the file.

    Also if I remember correctly, CS4 does not go up to Camera Raw 6, therefore you will need to use CS5. Another option is converting all the RAW files to DNG so that CS4 can read them.

    Yup, this is the correct answer.

    Adobe have a nasty habit of not supporting previous versions of their Creative Suites once a new one is out.

    CS5 will be able to open the files once you update it to Camera Raw 6.1.

    Because Apple don't release new functionality for old and old OS unless it suites them.
