There is an option in Canon's Digital photo Professional (188.8.131.52) to 'Transfer [photos] to Photoshop'. It doesn't work, instead returning the message "Failed to start Photoshop". I asked Canon and they say it's a Photoshop problem. I'm using Elements 14 (20151206.m.8370) x64. Any ideas?
Lloyd - you're right of course, and it's not difficult to do the workaround you suggest. it just annoys me when there's a feature that won't do what it says! I wouldn't need DPP if Adobe would provide adequate support for RAW in PSE 14 - it's only two years old, but they won't supply the means to open RAW files taken with my Canon 77D.
