The camera raw functionality in Adobe Photoshop software provides
fast and easy access to supported raw image formats produced by many
leading professional and mid-range digital cameras. Working with
these “digital negatives” provides photographers with greater
artistic control and flexibility while maintaining the original raw
files. Adobe Photoshop Camera Raw supports the same functionality for
TIFF and JPEG files.

The Camera Raw team would like the community to help verify the
quality of the Camera Raw 5.4 Release Candidate through normal usage
to ensure that the application is tested on a wide variety of
hardware and software configurations not available internally at
Adobe. Feedback can be provided on the Adobe User to User forum
