    I can't seem to figure out how to do it or if it's even possible. I've installed Olympus Master 2 and Viewer 2 (which I assume contain the codecs) but can't seem to be able to get the RAWs to open in Adobe.

    I'm running an Alienware M11X with Win7 64bit and normally work in Elements 7.

    Anyone know how or if possible?

    thanks John

    Depends on the camera model and which version of ACR you have installed. Currently all the Olympus Pens except the EPL2 are supported by the latest ACR version. For the EPL2 you'll need to wait until adobe release an update.

    You need a new version of ACR if it's a new camera like the E-PL2 which has yet to be released. I haven't heard of even a beta yet but one should be out soon. I haven't checked adobe labs this week, could be some info there.

    OK. Thanks. I have a new E-PL2.

    As mentioned I suspect you may need to upgrade Elements from 7 to the latest (9?). ACR when updated is never backwards compatible with earlier software.

    I change the model name in the RAW file to E-PL1 and Lightroom will import the files. Maybe it will work with ACR.
