Hi ... I'm sure this has been asked before but I can't find an easy answer on the forum.

I've been using Photoshop CS3 for years on my 2006 iMac. It's a student version, so I can't upgrade. Now I just bought a D7000 and PS won't open my raw files.

I see that I need to upgrade Adobe Camera Raw. Is it possible to upgrade Camera Raw so that it works with CS3 AND with my D7000 files?

I just ordered the brand new iMac, hoping it comes before Christmas. I was expecting to buy PS Elements 11 after the new computer comes.

Is there anything I can do now with my old iMac running CS3 to open my D7000 raw files?

I don't want to buy CS6 because of the price. If I buy Elements 11 now for my old Mac, will I be able to reinstall that on the new one?
