raw format. Adobe has formulated a universal format which I think at least one maker is using, but it has not been adopted by all the makers. Essentially, you need a raw processor that can handle your camera. For Photoshop, there needs to be a plug-in which can handle your camera. Fortunately, a lot of cameras are already covered by PS plug-ins. I do not know if PS Elements can use these plug-ins. You should probably go to the forum on the Adobe site to ask the question.
I am thinking about buying a DSLR. Can anyone tell me whether RAW conversion software has to be for a specific model of camera or will any conversion software work on any model of camera? I see that the Nikon software is not very highly rated. I have Photoshop Elements that is at least three years old, (It was bundled with the computer and does not disclose which version it is)and I can not find much about RAW conversion in the Help files. Would an upgrade of Elements provide all the software I need?
Any advice would be appreciated.
