I had to download ACR7 and install it.
Download it from where? Installed is how and where?
I found a link here after the Updater in Bridge and Photoshop did not seem ot install 7.3
http://blogs.adobe.com/crawlspace/2011/03/keeping-photoshop-up-to-date.html#notconnected. I have a MAC, so I went to that link.
It downloaded something called setup.dmg. I clicked on it after the download was complete. That brought me into AdobeCameraRaw-7.3.mul.AdobeUpdate.
I double clicked on AdobePatchInstaller. It came back update complete and I was able to use ACR7.3 from PhotoShop.
Have you purged your preview cache in Bridge? If previews were originally built when the images weren’t known to ACR, then you need to rebuild the previews after installing the new ACR version. You need to get to your ACR Preferences somehow to purge the cache.
Have you reset your PS-CS6 preferences file? On a Mac, hold CommandOptionShift while starting Photoshop to delete the preferences.
Doing the CommandOptionShift while starting Adobe Bridge CS6 did the trick. My RW2 images show up and I can get to Adobe Camera Rwas preferences for Adobe Bridge.
I first tried the commandoptionshift with Photoshop, But the issue did not go away. I also had cleaned out my cache. I went into terminal to check the directory from a UNIX level to make sure it was empty. But that did not help the issue either.
Thanks so much to everyone that responded and especially ssprengel.
Ok, everything was ok until I rebooted my machine. Now when I open Adobe Bridge CS6, The Raw images show up initially. But when Adobe Bridge finally gives me control, the images have become blank icons again. I've tried the CommandOptionShift and it does not help. It was fine for two weeks and now I can't get the raw images to stay.
Here is what I see as Adobe Opens the older. The Raw images are viewable.
Now this is how they look after Adobe Bridge has finished opening and I can click on something:
Where do I go from here?
I have same issue,
camera raw editing not available
camera raw editing require you launch a qualifiying product atleast once.
but i have ps.
tried the control alt shift on win8
reset pref and purge boxes checked, still not working
Also get same error when trying to set color settings too
but i have ps…
…but have you actually launched it?
ACR is enabled if you have launched Br through its parent product (i.e Photoshop or Suite)
Make sure any trial version for the qualifying product on your computer is not expired.
yes I have, But have found the camera raw prefs can be edited in PS prefs "File handling"
