Adobe Releases New Camera Raw and Lightroom Updates –
Late last week Adobe finally released an update for ACR to handle some of the hottest new DSLR cameras on the market. Included in update Ver. 5.6 is support for the Canon 7D, 1D Mark IV, G11, the Nikon D3s, Sony A500 and A550, and a few others. Remember that this update is only good if you are using Photoshop CS4. For those of you that are using an older version of Photoshop, don’t despair, you can still process your raw files. You just need to use the Adobe DNG converter to change the raw files to the Adobe DNG format, which still gives you the same functionality as a raw file.
As for all you Lightroom 2 users, you can now download the 2.6 update that will give you the ability to process the same raw files as those in the ACR update. For all of your update needs, check out the New Downloads section over at Adobe.
