Hello All, I am currently using a old version 6 of Elements, having aquired a new canon M6 Camera, Version 6 does not open Canon CR2 Raw files, getting a error message, however the file extension is shown in the drop down box of file extensions.
Do i need a plugin ?
I am considering the new version 2020 can anyone confirm this will open Canon Raw files CR2?
Please answer me as if i am a fool, not overly computer literate
CR2 files aren't a generic thing. Every camera is different, and if you buy a new camera you usually need new software. Elements can take up to a year to catch up with new models. I hope someone can say if your Canon M6 Camera, Version 6 is supported yet.
Every Canon camera has different raw files even though the extension may be CR2 or CR3. Unfortunately PSE6 cannot be updated to accept files from the latest cameras including the EOS M6.
You could batch convert CR2 files to Adobe Raw (DNG) for use in PSE6.
Or try PSE 2020 free for 30 days. The interface is different but most of the tools will be familiar. You should be able to convert your PSE6 catalog after installation but your existing catalog will remain untouched.
