Many times we see different threads on Adobe Forums and Elements-Village about using raw files of different camera models by Nikon, Canon, Olympus, Pentax or Sony etc. This article is specially for special users of Nikon D800 and Canon 5D MarkIII. If you are using any version less than 10.0 of Adobe Photoshop Elements, you can't use the raw files in your software. But don't worry, there is a workaround to it and you would be able to use with earlier versions as well. We shall talk about it in later part of the article.
For folks who are having Adobe Photoshop Elements, just follow below mentioned steps to use raw files of Nikon D800 and Canon 5D MarkIII in Adobe Photoshop Elements 10.0 -
1. Go to Help Menu
2. Check for Updates
3. You will see an update 'Adobe Camera Raw 6.7'
4. Apply it.
5. Relaunch Adobe Photoshop Elements and you are ready to use Raw files generated through your new cameras.
Now how about earlier versions of Adobe Photoshop Elements? Download DNG Converter from Adobe.com and convert your Raw files into DNG which can be handled through your versions of Adobe Photoshop Elements.
