Cannot find Camera Raw in my PSE 11

Jan 27, 2013 10:05 PM

Trying to start with Camera Raw but cannot find the plug in. If I open any of my images with open command all are JPEG. My Camera is Canon powerShot s110.

thanks

    If you have any camera raw format files like .nef or .caf etc then when you try to open them they would open by default in ACR plugin.

     

    If you wish to just check that if ACR is there in your app or not then check this:

     

    1) Click File->Open As

    2) Select your file and in the formats dropdown choose Camera RAw as format.

     

    This would open even your JPEG files in ACR plugin.

     

    Hope it helps

     

    Thanks,

    Garry

    Have you checked in your PSE11 what version you have got?  To check this, you need to do this:

     


    Help >> About Plugin >> Camera Raw

     

    See this picture:

    You should get something like this:

    Good luck.

    See:

    http://helpx.adobe.com/creative-suite/kb/camera-raw-plug-supported-cam eras.html

    You need camera raw ((ACR) version 7.3 to open your Canon raw files.

    PSE11 need to update to that version, which is simply done by using the menu help/update.

    Updates manager status: All aplications updated.

    ?

     

    Good news but do you get all the items in your menu bar?  If not then try to reset everything in your PSE11 by Launching it first to get the welcome screen and then:

     

    Press [ CTRL + ALT +Shift ] all together

     

    Now click on Editor item

     

    Keep it pressed until you get a dialog box asking you to reset the PSE11.  Click YES and it might fix the problem but can't guarantee but nothing will be damaged on your system by doing this.

    Hi Jopasnyt,

     

    Sorry you're having such a hard time getting the Camera Raw working - the solutions that the forum forums community members have provided should mostly have sorted out the problem. However, if you could try this one thing - open Photoshop Elements > Help menu > click Updates.

     

    In the Adobe Application Manager that opens up, you might see something about Adobe Camera Raw (similar to the image below).

    Choose to update Photoshop Elements. That could help you get the Camera Raw plugin installed correctly.

     

    Cheers,

    David

    You could try the CS6 download and then rename the plug-in before installing it manually. Right-click on the following link and choose “Save Target As”

     

    When the download completes double click on setup.zip and on the menu click Extract all files, then click the Extract button.

     

    Go to the folder payloads and then go to the folder

    AdobeCameraRaw7.0All-291112104530 and finally go to the folder

     

    Inside Assets1_1.zip extract all files (as above) then find the file 1003

     

    Renamed the file 1003 as Camera Raw.8bi

     

     

    On Windows 64 bit go to the File Formats folder and drag Camera Raw.8bi into that folder.

     

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\Plug-Ins\Elements 11\File Formats

     

    N.B before starting ensure the File Formats folder does not have an existing 8bi file. If it does; delete it.

    

    Download link:

    http://swupdl.adobe.com/updates/oobe/aam20/win/PhotoshopCameraRaw7-7.0 /7.3.37/Setup.zip

    I am in the same boat. I have PSE Camera Raw Plug In 7.3.0.71 but cannot for the life of me figure out how to open camera raw. I am running an iMac with Mountain Lion.

     

    I've searched hi and low and all I can find is how to ID the version of CR I have installed.

     

    Can someone give me some help out there?

    Launch the Editor app and use:

     

    File >> Open

     

    Then navigate to a raw file and open.

     

    The camera raw dialog will open automatically and you can use the sliders to adjust your raw image. If you then want to do further editing in the Editor or save the image in a different format e,g. jpeg, tiff, PSD etc, you click the Open Image button at the bottom right.

    Thanks for your rapid response. Can't the camera raw be used on a jpg as well?

    99jon....all I get when I go to file>>open and then choose the file is the usual editor option tabs for "quick, guided, and expert." No camera raw option or opening of the plug in. I have to have done something wrong. 

     

    If the plug in is installed, any idea why it's not opening or why I can't find a trace of its presence?

    at present trying with a jpg which I could do in PSE 10. Perhaps that capability was removed? At that time, I could choose file>>open as>>camera raw. I don't see that in PSE 11.

     

    Maybe I'm trying to do something that can't be done but as related, I could in earlier versions of PSE.

     

    Comment???

     

    Thanks.

    It’s still in PSE11

    File >> Open As

    Or use Alt+Ctrl+O

    After you navigate to your jpeg choose Camera Raw from the file format dropdown list.

    99jon and all you mac users out there. I'm sure most of you already know this but I just figured out how to open a file (including jpgs and TIFF) using camera raw.

     

    If you want to use camera raw, go to file>>open>>select your file from the finder>>and then in the format box at the bottom of the finder, select camera raw, i.e not photoshop.

     

    I just stumbled on this and I'm sure most of you using PSE already knows this, but I thought I'd share it anyways.

     

    Thanks again, 99jon, for your quick and helpful replies.
