cs2 can look at RAW but you need to make sure you have the latest updates installed. If you go to Adobe website it should explain what you need to do.

Having said that I would use RAWSHOOTER instead for viewing RAW. It's a free application and is superior in RAW conversion to the Canon or Adobe utilities just now. Adobe have actually bought the company that make RAWSHOOTER and no doubt a new version will appear with their brandname.

You can download Rawshooter essentials for free here

for photoshop to see the 350d you need to update the camera raw plugin.

then use bridge to view and sort your raws and convert them in cs2 unless you use some thing else. I find a lot of people say cs2 is crap compared to raw shooter, thats because they dont know how to set up ACR (abobe camera raw). cs2 + bridge + ACR is one very powerfull package.

we tested ACR against rawshooter, c1 pro, lightroom, aperture, raw developer. and found raw developer gave the best picture quality and look, followed by ACR + c1pro.

We use acr and raw developer depending on what our out put is to be used for.

Mark,
It seems Adobe doesnt really make it "easy" to set up. I have done it and whilst I agree it works well, it seems Adobe has made it much easier for the users of Photoshop Elements 3 ( with raw plug -in) or Elements 4 to have an easier ride as the plug in just opens RAW files automatically before going in to the mail editing window

maybe its just me but I find cs raw import better than cs2 version. While its nice to have the curves option present I find it over compensates for low light level stuff when using the auto options. So you end up with all these nice new toys and ultimately resort back to good old fashion by hand and eye
