PE11 with camera raw 7.2 will not import .CR2 from Sony SX50.
(Camera not supported...)
Sony sx50 is on the list of supported cameras and .CR2 on the list of supported files!
Yes, i mean Canon SX50, sorry!
In photoshop elements 11 there is no Help -> Updates.
I found ACR 7.3 but it seems it is exclusively for Photoshop CS6, it needs the installmanager from CS6.
Thank you for your advice,
ACR 7.3 should aplly to PSE 11 - it is on mine.
If you load the editor, go to the Help menu and see what it displays for About Plug-in -> Camera RAW - see which version is loaded.
There should be an updates option too, towards the bottom of the list - I'm on a PC so it may be different if you are on a MAC
Sorry, just had another thought.
Are you using a MAC and did you download PSE from the App store?
This is outside my expertise (I'm a PC man) but I believe you only get the editor part and there may be an issue with getting updates.
I am using a Macbook Pro (2010) and happen to have downloaded PSE from the App store.
And no, my help menu is not looking like yours at all.
I guess i have to wait a few days and contact Adobe about this issue with getting updates..
You have been very friendly and usefull.
Ah, sorry, but the sad fact is that when you buy PSE from the App Store, that's pretty much it. I don't know why adobe would have released it with 7.2 rather than the current version of 7.3, but you're right, they did. Because the app store doesn't allow anything sold through it to update outside the app store and historically adobe never releases updates via the app store version, I think you're stuck. I would suggest using the Report a Problem link in your receipt to see if you can get a refund, then buying PSE somewhere else.
In previous versions of PSE for app store, it was possible, although tiresome, to do a manual update of ACR, but since adobe has stopped posting the files for manual updates for PS and PSE, it's not possible for ACR 7.3.
I was coming to this conclusion also after a lot of googling.
It's a sad fact indeed.
I was't aware that ACR for Photoshop CS6 is a different engine from ACR for PSE.
The only option for me to use PSE is to convert the files with the DNG-converter, it seems.
That is not a very user-friendly option.
It is the same plugin, but adobe does not release the plugin as a manual download anymore. In any edition of PSE or PS CS 6, it's only available via help>updates now, and the app store version doesn't have the updates option for the reason given in my previous post.
