Using Photoshop Elements 9, I installed the camera RAW plug-in 18.104.22.168 to be able to open the RAW pictures from my new Sony RX100. This camera is said to be supported, but Elements can not open it: wrong file-type, it says! The camera RAW plug-in + right version is in the listing of plug-ins, extension *.ARW is mentioned for the file-types to choose from when trying to open a file, but a window appears, telling me ARW can't be opened: wrong file-type.
Already started the computer cold, re-installed the plug-in, but no opening of the Sony ARW camera RAW file.
Does anybody know what to do? Thanks
You need ACR version 7.2 for the RX100:
Only PSE11 can have 7.2, so to be able to use your raw files with PSE9 you should download the free Adobe DNGconverter which can batch convert a whole folder of raw files into the Adobe raw DNG format which your PSE9 can open.
Thanks Michel. It's a pity I have an extra job to process now, but I'm glad I can handle the RAW files in PSE now. The RAW-utility Sony provides is not my peace of cake yet.
Thanks again! Kind regardsd, Leida.
