    Where do I update to RAW 6.1?

    I Cast Community Member

      I'm working through Kelby CS5 and could not duplicate his work flow until I realized my RAW is 6.0 NOT 6.1!!! How do I update to Adobe RAW 6.1?

       

      Frustrated

          You want to update to last version of 6.x which I believe is 6.7.

           

          Click on Adobe above and go to downloads.

           

          You can also update by clicking on Updates in PS Help.  PS may also need an update.

            I think I didn’t pose my question correctly. I’m looking for the RAW processing software inside CS5.

              In my version of CS5 RAW I donot have the following options:

               

              Bridge Lens Corrections: no pull down options

               

              Crop: no Crop Constrain to Image option

               

              ???????????????????

                Curt's advice is correct.

                 

                As stated, do one of the following things:

                      Clear your browser cache and try the download again.  I just downloaded it and there's no problem with the zip file on the Adobe site.

                       

                      Why your system should tell you the update is not applicable is beyond me.  Have you succeeded installing the update at one time in the past?

                       

                      What do you see when, in Photoshop, you choose Help - About Plug-in...?  Do you see only one entry for Camera Raw?

                          You can go to Program Files/COMMON Files/Adobe/Plug-ins/CSx/File Formats which gives you Camera Raw.8bi 

                           

                          Delete the .8bi file and try downloading 6.7 again.

                           

                          Do you have the latest version of CS5?  Download locatons in previous posts.

                            I copied this from CS5 system info pull down

                             

                             

                             

                             

                             

                            Adobe Photoshop Version: 12.0 (12.0x20100115) X64

                            I’ll try your recommendation on deleting .8bi file.

                              I deleted the .8bi file and try to run 6.7 and got the same error message.

                               

                               

                               

                              I purchased my Adobe PS CS5 Extended from an eBay seller. The CD box has a 2010 date.

                               

                               

                               

                              It states that some of the GPU accelerated features require Shader Model 3.0 and OpenGL2.0 graphics support, whatever that is??

                                Oh lord.  There are almost no legitimate Photoshop sales on eBay.

                                  Noel:

                                   

                                  Would you please expand on your statement. I wanted to move up from CS4 so I could work with Cannon G11 & G12 raw files and Nikon NEF raw files.

                                   

                                  The CS5 install went through as the key was still usuable. Are there older versions of CS5 that do not have RAW 6.1 on the CD? Does that explain why some functions found in the Kelby CS5 book are not in my CS5 operating system?

                                   

                                  Just trying to get by on my retirement budget.

                                      Oh, brother!  No one, absolutely no one should be running that version of Photoshop.  You should be in either version 12.0.4 or 12.1.

                                     

                                    Before you update Photoshop and fix that, there's no point in your messing around with ACR.

                                      Forget about ACR 6.1 already!  The version that gets installed by default from a legitimate Photoshop install DVD is ACR 6.0, and that is obsolete from the get go.  ACR 6.1 has been obsolete for years too.  You need to update ACR to version 6.7, and nothing else.

                                       

                                      Before you can do that, though, you need to update Photoshop to 12.0.4 or 12.1, no ifs or buts.

                                        PS 12.0.4 or 12.1 OK, thanks for that info. How do I accomplish that upgrade?

                                          Through the Updates or Check for Updates menu item in the Help menu in Photoshop.

                                            Tried that and the only update was Adobe Extension Manager CS5 5.0 Update

                                              downloaded 12.0.4 and the install failed after extracting the .exe file.

                                                What's got me worried is the possibility that this is an illegitimate version of Photoshop CS5, which can't properly be updated by the online updates Adobe has published.

                                                 

                                                I don't really know how to check, outside of verifying your serial number with the Adobe customer support people.

                                                    There is one possibility for you to get a recent version of Camera Raw.8bi into the proper location (from where you deleted it)...

                                                     

                                                    See this thread for where to find the files within the Camera Raw updater package that become Camera Raw.8bi on your system.  With Windows XP you'll only be interested in the 32 bit one:

                                                      Does your copy of Photoshop say either "Portable" or "Lite" anywhere on it?  If so, it's an illegal copy.

                                                        Hello, if you constantly get bad ZIPs or EXEs, try to use another browser for your downloads.

                                                        Disable your download accelerator software if you use any.

                                                        Try to use another Zip expander, like stuffit, 7zip, or .  (Wich one are you using?)

                                                          The DVD packaging wrapper and the DVD label look legit. Suposively this DVD came from a graphics company which had deregistered the software.

                                                           

                                                          I pasted the Camera Raw.8bi into an external hard drive before I deleted that file. When that idea failed and I reinserted the file back into it's proper folder.

                                                           

                                                          I'll try your next suggestion and get back to you.

                                                           

                                                          Thanks for all the help.

                                                            I followed your instruction until I got to the part where you "copy the numbered resource file inside to the appropriate Camera raw .8bi file." When I try to open the .8bi file by dbl clk it opens PS. How do you get inside the .8bi file to insert the 1002 file?

                                                             

                                                            I also downloaded Adobe Camera raw-6.7- mul-AdobeUpdate.zip. When I bblclk on the AdobePatchInstaller.exe  I got the message that the message that all files had to be unzipped first, which I did. So what did I just accomplish to fix the Camera Raw 6.1 problem?

                                                              What are you doing?  There is nothing about copying a file from inside a zip to a location on your hard-drive that involves double-clicking on a Camera Raw.8bi file, and there is nothing in Noel’s linked instructions that says to double-click on the AdobePatchInstaller.exe, especially when it is inside the zip-file, still, which is what the error message is telling you not to do.  If you want to run the Adobe Patch Installer you need to extract all the files from that update zip into a folder of your choosing and then run the patch installer exe.

                                                               

                                                              If you still want to try Noel’s process for manually placing the new ACR from within the updater zip to its proper location on your hard drive, here is my versions of the instructions, with the double-clicks explicitly stated:

                                                               

                                                              Double-click on the AdobeCameraRaw-6.7-mul-AdobeUpdate.zip to open it in Windows Explorer.

                                                               

                                                              Double-click on the payloads folder inside the zip to show its contents in Windows Explorer.

                                                               

                                                              Double-click on the first folder you see under payloads, the one without x64 and without Profile in the name, this is for the 32-bit version of Camera RAW.8bi

                                                               

                                                              Within that folder you’ll see an Assets2_1.zip.

                                                               

                                                              Right-click on Assets2_1.zip and choose Copy.

                                                               

                                                              Go to your Desktop and create a new folder, then open that folder and paste the Assets2_1.zip into that folder.

                                                               

                                                              From within that new folder, double-click on Assets2_1.zip to open it in Windows Explorer.

                                                               

                                                              Within that zip file, find the 1003 file that is a little over 20MB in size, much larger than anything else.

                                                               

                                                              Right-click on it and choose Copy.

                                                               

                                                              Open a new Windows Explorer window and navigate to the folder in  Noel’s instructions:

                                                               

                                                              C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Adobe\Plug-Ins\CS5\File Formats\Camera Raw.8bi

                                                               

                                                              Right-click in that folder and choose Paste.

                                                               

                                                              You should now see a 1003 file in that folder.

                                                               

                                                              If you already have a Camera Raw.8bi file, rename it changing the .8bi to .bak.

                                                               

                                                              Rename the 1003 file to Camera Raw.8bi.

                                                               

                                                              Now the 32-bit version of Camera Raw.8bi has been updated to 6.7.

                                                               

                                                              Return to your original ZIP file and now click down into the folder under payloads that has an x64 in the name.

                                                               

                                                              Follow the same steps for unzipping the Assets2_1.zip and such, just copy the 1002 file into 64-bit version of Camera Raw.8bi, which Noel says is:

                                                               

                                                              C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Plug-Ins\CS5\File Formats\Camera Raw.8bi

                                                               

                                                              That should be it.

                                                               

                                                              It would be preferable to get the Adobe Patch Installer to run and complete successfully because it will also install the lens and camera profiles for your camera, but without those you’ll still have the basic raw conversion occurring and the Adobe Standard profile.

                                                               

                                                              Since you purchased your PS-CS5 from eBay, the packaging may be original from Adobe and never opened—you can download the software as a trial for free and it will be basically the same thing as on the DVD, but the serial number is really the only important thing, and if Adobe has never certified that serial number as being shipped or solder or Adobe finds out the package was stolen or any number of other things that could have happened that aren’t a normal sale from Adobe to the customer, then Adobe could eventually blacklist the serial number and PS will eventually just stop working with a message that it is not a legit.

                                                                Did you delete the old .8bi file before downloading the 6.7 file?  Believe the process should install in correct spot.  If not you will have to copy un-zipped file to the Program Files/COMMON Files/Adobe/Plug-ins/CSx/File Formats location. 

                                                                 

                                                                This is location for 64 bit version.  THere should also be a 32 bit version, but that goes in the 32 bit location, same address but (X86)
