Adobe & Camera Raw :(

Cannot believe this….. I have a new Canon EOS 7D and it’s awesome! But guess what? I have access to Adobe Photoshop CS2, CS3, DxO Optics Pro 6 & Capture One 5 on various computers, and the CR2 files are happily loaded into the last two but Adobe? No way! You have to upgrade to CS4 if you want to to manipulate CR2 Canon Raw files in Photoshop!

Where does Adobe get off? Admittedly it’s the best photo manipulation software that I’ve come across (it’s suits me anyway) but neither CS2 nor CS3 are broken and both work extremely well for the pro photographers that rely on them and neither are going to upgrade because my new camera requires it……….

Not only but also, CS5 is about to be released, well, on April 12th they’re going to announce when so if anyone upgrades now, or I choose to buy it now, it’s obselete in 2 weeks time and we’ve just bought obselete software……..

Naughty, naughty, Adobe – shame on you forcing upgrades like that. It’s just not cricket – it’s morally reprehensible…..
