Photoshop Elements 6 - open RAW files?

Hi gang,

I have Photoshop Elements 6 (came with my Dell PC), and I've just now started playing with it.

My RAW files (on the memory card) are saved as .CR2 files, and while I can open them with no problem using DPP (which came with my Canon T1i), I can't open them in Photoshop Elements 6 (PSE6). Is that because I need to upgrade to version 7 or 8? When I go to File... Open... in PSE6, and then select a .CR2 file from the memory card (i.e. one of the RAW images), it says it can't open it because it's the "wrong type of file".

What gives!?

Thanks!
