Photoshop 5.0 help please!

I have Photoshop 5.0 (no manuals or instructions) and when I try to open a RAW file all I get is a black picture. I must be doing something wrong. Can someone tell me the proper way to open a RAW picture in Photoshop?

Thanks

I don't think PS5 supports RAW files.

Cheers,

Phil

Nope. You need to convert to .jpeg or .tiff.

Yeah, direct RAW support is a relatively new feature for Adobe. PS5 is circa 1998 or thereabouts.

... That is, convert via the Pentax bundled software or another viewer application, then import that file to Photoshop.

NB: Remember that if you wish to get the best results from editing or enhancing your image in Photoshop, then TIFF is the recommended format for import. JPG will erase a certain amount of data from the image, limiting the ability to finetune graduations, colour balances, etc.

Save the edited file as a JPG if you wish, but not before making all your adjustments.

that's the way to go with older versions of PS
