I was told by Bradshaw, the online Adobe Chat Rep, that PSE 11 would fix the problem I have in PSE10 of editing Canon SX50 HS Raw files. I also read on DPReview site that I could download and Install ACR 7.3 and it would fix the issue in PSE 11. It won't install. Anybody got and answer to this challenge.
Can you please provide a few more details? What exactly are you trying to install Photoshop Elements 11 or Camera RAW 7.3? Do you receive any specific error messages when you try to install? Finally which operating system are you using?
I am confused. I thought Camera Raw was part of PSE 10 & 11. Something in PSE 10 edits my Canon Raw files when I merely import them and attempt to edit them in Guided Edit mode. I made an assumption that Camera Raw was doing that. PSE 10 will not allow me to edit any of the Raw files from my Canon 60d but not from my new SX50. I thought it was because of the version of Camera Raw built into PSE 10 which according to at least one DPReview forum said the ACR version in PSE 10 only went to 6.7 but in PSE 11 it went to 7.2 but still would not edit the Raw files from the SX50. However the same thread said that there was a beta version of ACR which was 7.3 and that would allow me edit the SX50 Raw files.
Does that help explain the problem. I really am not that insterested in the details I just need to edit the SX50 raw files and would prefer the method available to me in PSE 10 but I don't understand why the Adobe rep told me that PSE 11 would support the SX50 Raw format.
You will have to wait a little longer for the 7.3 update if you wish to edit in PSE11.
So what you are saying is that this ACR 7.3 update that you sent me the link to, because it is a beta or Release Candidate. will not work as a plug in for PSE 11? Can you clarify that for me. If so how will I know that the Full Version of this 7.3 update is available or ready to install?
ACR plugin 7.3 is still in beta. As soon as the plugin gets out in the market, you would be notified that in PSE that there is an update available for your application. You might also try occasionally going to Help> Updates to check if there is any update available for your application
So Beta plugins are not allowed to be tested by the general populace?
If I can't use PSE 11 to edit my SX50 Raw files can I convert them with a DNG converter? I tried to download one and it would not run for some reason. I read somewhere that if I could get my SX50 Raw files converted to DNG I could edit them in PSE 10. Is that correct and does anyone have the correct link to a DNG converter?
Your camera gets support in version 7.3 which is out of beta testing and now available as a release candidate. You may want to wait for the final version of camera raw 7.3 which will be available shortly. Alternatively download the release candidate now but make a note to update when the final version is released.

You can download and use the ACR 7.3 release candidate with PSE11. But it might have some bugs as the actual plugin is still to be released.
If you convert your raw images to dng, you can use them with any previous version of ACR
