PrE11 "Help > Updates" lists that one is available for download

Apr 3, 2013 8:16 AM

Last week when I clicked on "Help > Updates..", the Adobe Application Manager reported everything was up to date.

 

This morning it says there is an update, but does not say why or what it is for.

 

Why might an update be needed?  Where might I look for a description of what that update is?

 

Thanks.

 

Bill

    Bill,

     

    That update is for ACR (Adobe Camera RAW).

     

    Good luck,

    Interesting list there Bill. This AM, I had my notification from Adobe Application Manager, and my only one was for ACR. Now, I do not have PSE, so would not expect to see anything for it on my machine, plus my PrE 11 is a fairly fresh install from physical media, and upon installation, I did install Application Manager, and updated at that time.

     

    Good luck,

    >Not too long ago I think Adobe changed gears on updates. You no longer go to the website and download an executable.

     

    I am on CS5 and it has always been the case that when an update is available, I am told by there being a red A(dobe) icon in my Windows tray (bottom right)

     

    OR - you may still go to the updates site manually, to download and/or read about an update

    ACR allows PrE to be able to Import Camera RAW files. It does not have the full control panel, that one would see with ACR in PSE, PS or Lightroom. It's a bit more like having a CODEC for Video.

     

    As camera mfgrs. almost always change aspects of their Camera RAW, with new models (and also with some firmware updates), Adobe is constantly updating the ACR module, to accommodate new cameras. As Nikon just introduced a few new cameras, I would assume that the latest ACR update accommodates many of those.

     

    Once, PrE could not deal with Camera RAW files, and one needed to process those through PSE, PS or Lightroom, and Save_As PSD, TIFF, JPEG, etc.. Not sure when Camera RAW support was added to PrE, but think that it was about PrE 9, or 10. I do not think that PrE 11 was the first version with such support, but could be wrong. Maybe a PrE "historian," can chime in.

     

    Good luck,

    Bill,

     

    Here is a very recent post from Adobe about the new ACR update: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1183529?tstart=0

    Yes, ACR in PrE seems to only facilitate the Importation of Camera RAW Images.

     

    Personally, I like working with the full adjustment compliment in Photoshop, through ACR, then do a Save_As PSD, and Import that file into Premiere. There is just so much "processing" available through ACR in PS, PSE and Lightroom, that I do not want to give that up.

     

    Good luck,

    For good mental health, one should never stop learning. That is one reason that I spend so much time on the Adobe Forums - I am first here to learn.
