Cameras supported by Camera Raw

The D500 is supported in Camera Raw 9.5 and later which is only compatible with Cloud versions of Photoshop.

So you'll never be able to open Raw files from that camera in CS5.

Options:

  1. Join the Cloud Photography Plan for $10/month and get Photoshop CC+Lightroom CC. You can then edit your Raw files in Photoshop,
    or
  2. Stay with CS5 and use the free Adobe DNG converter. Download and install the converter, then batch convert all your D500 Raw files to DNG format. Then edit the DNG files (not the Raw files) in CS5. An extra step for you but no extra cost.
