CS6 Process Version

Jul 17, 2012 9:23 AM

This may be  a daft question  :   In CS6   Bridge it  shows an image that has been first time imported and put thru raw and photoshop.

that  the process version  is  6.7     Should that not read 7.1   images taken  on canon EOS 450D

 

Thanks...

    For CS6 you need adobe camera raw 7.x so you are correct.

     

    ACR 6.7 fits with CS5.

    In PS if you click on Help/about plugins/camera raw what version do you have?  Should be only one version there.

    OK, then it may be file type associatons.  Since you uninstalled a previous version some users have problems with trying to open files in programs that no longer exist.

     

    In Bridge go to edit/prefences/file type associations as see what you have for defaults.  Click the button to reset to defaults if they are incorrect.

     

    If you have problems there, you might need more drastic measures to fix.

    Please take a screen shot and post it here to show us what you mean.  Without that there's only guessing as what you mean by "it shows..."

     

    Thanks.

    Camera Raw Process Version should be a year, not a camera raw version number. The available Process Versions are: 2003, 2010, and 2012.

     

    So, yes, please post a screen shot.

    No, the PV in Bridge reads the earliest version that the process version was installed in ACR. ACR 6.7 was the first process Version version to have the ability to read and process (although not adjust) PV 2012. Yes, it would be useful if Bridge reported that actually as 2003, 2010 or 2012 but it doesn't...

    Screen shots are indeed essential.

     

    I suspect you may be looking at a camera profile that was first created when ACR 6.7 was the then-current version.  So we need to see what you are looking at and where.

     

    For instance, in the screen shot below, you see Adobe Camera Raw version 7.1 hosted by Photoshop 13 ("CS6") opening an old .PEF file from a Pentax *istD on which, for demonstration purposes, I have selected the very first profile Adobe generated for that particular camera model when the most advanced version of ACR was 2.4.  Therefore "Adobe Camera Raw 2.4" in the screen shot does NOT mean that is the version of ACR that is running.

     

    The version running is indeed the very latest, Camera Raw 7.1, as you can see at the top of the ACR preview window, and the process being used in the rendering is 2012:

     

    ACR_71_profile24.png

     

    There is, therefore, a difference between "process named by year" and "Camera Profile named by the version of ACR" under which it was first introduced.

    And in Bridge that is reported as "Process Version 6.7"...

    Thanks for that information, Mr. Schewe.  I hadn't bother to look that up in Bridge.

     

    As long as we all know what is meant, I guess that's all copacetic.

    …by which I not-so-obviously but sarcastically mean that it would be too much to expect from the Bridge team to fix that.

    Well, of course! 

     

     

    In post #8 above Guru Jeff Schewe has explained that this is by design, through a conscious though unfortunate decision by Bridge programmers:
