No. An update will *not* help. You need a newer ACR (adobe camera raw) that supports the 500D raw files, however that newer ACR is only available for CS4.

What you can do is download the DNG converter (free) from the Adobe site and convert your raw files to DNG format first, then open them in CS4.

Not in CS3. If you want a straight to JPEG conversion, use the software that came with your camera or upgrade to CS4.

If you want to convert RAW to jpg directly, you can use Canon DPP. Or just shoot in JPEG :p I assume the reason why you want to shoot in RAW is for more control... In that case converting it to JPEG and opening the JPEG in Photoshop is not very useful compared to converting to DNG then opening that in Photoshop.

Basically CS4 can handle the 500D raw files in the same way that your CS3 could handle your 450D raw.
