    I am using Canon 400 D using CR2 RAW mode. I download the images and process them on CS3 Photoshop.

    I have now switched over to 500 D Canon and the CR2 RAW file cannot be processed in CS3 it says the file is not the right type.
    On converting the raw file thru the canon software Digital Professional to JPEG it can be edited in CS3. How can I solve this problem

      Have you installed all the updates for Camera Raw. Photoshop (or Camera Raw rather) needs to know how to ‘read’ a raw file. When a new cameras is released, Camera Raw doesn’t know how to read the RAW file so Adobe has to send out an update to the software.

    Hey I was watching your”saving imagein JPEG format. but when i change my image in to black and white, it does not give me the option of FPEG format even after following your direction in the video. and when i save my black and white image in to file, it becomes colored image again. what should i do?

      Hmm, I am not sure what is going wrong. Can you give a more detail explanation of what you are doing?

    • Hi, I think that is because the way you are saving the B&W conversion! So, if you save your B&W conversion as new document then you will be able to follow this Tutorial ( I think ). It really depends on how you are saving your B&W conversion. Hope this helps… if not then more info. of how you are converting the B&W will help towards your answer.
