I tried to get the photoshop to open my Raw file but I get an error " unable to open Preview"
Anyone else have this type of problem
Running 7.0.1, XP Pro SP 2
Trying not to buy CS2 ( Yet) :)

I use bibble myself, but regarding photoshop - I am not certain if the DS was supported by ACR for Photoshop 7.... I am certain the latest few versions of ACR (adobe camera raw) are tied to the CS and now CS2 versions of photoshop.. Basically they release new PS version then update RAW support for only that version, gotta love the treatment of customers...

You can use the Pentax photoshop plugin to get support under PS 7


Or look at Bibble


Or Rawshooter Essentials which is free (prefer Bibble myself)

I believe that you need Photoshop CS or above to enable the RAW Plug In to function; but I have been wrong before.

I also found that Paint Shop Pro 9.0 also supports the Pentax Raw format. I just picked up Photoshop CS, but have not used it yet for Pentax Raw.
