    You need to get DNG4PS-2 to convert them to .dng files.  Or try Raw Therapee...it can open .crw files.

    I used RAWTherappe, it can open my RAW files from my Canon SD 850, but it looks worst than my jpg? It is suppose to be like this? I thought the whole point of RAW was to have better looking pictures, or at least have more control in editing it in Photoshop or the likes. Can some one clarify? thanks.

    I also cannot open my RAW files in Photoshop CS3 or Picasa. I'm using a mac, but I don't think that makes a difference regarding CS3 or Picasa.

    Hello & welcome hxh103,

    some links for you, see also the link * in my signature:

      CHDK & RAW - a never ending story
      CHDK_for_Dummies#RAW,
      FAQ#Q. I've_shot_some_RAW_pictures._How_do_I_process_them ?
    ...and you'll get many hits by searching for "RAW" here in the forum  ;)

    In the RAW there's nothing done like whitebalancing, sharpening, color adjusting, smoothing...it's the raw sensor data.
    You can manually do all the things normally the cameras firmware is doing to give you a good result, but it's a lot of work...

    Most programs can't open the CHDK-RAW's directly, you have to convert the RAW files to the DNG file format (e.g. with DNG4PS2, for MAC there's a version here, see the links above).

    Not sure if this would help you with CS3 - but it might? The Camera Raw 4.4.1 update for Photoshop.

    Adobe - Adobe Camera Raw and DNG Converter : For Windows : Camera Raw 4.4.1 update

    Provided in a link on the page is a list of supported models as well.

    I got my A720 RAWs open in RawTherapee, great little application!
