Which version of mac os x are you using?
The default location for the camera raw plugin for photoshop cs4 is
/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Plug-Ins/CS4/File Formats
(the root level Library of your hard drive, not your user library)
In spotlight you could type in the words Camera Raw and maybe that will tell you where the camera raw plugin(s) are now.
Thanks for your reply.
I'm using version 10.9.4
I found the previous 5.7 plug in, trashed it, and started over again.Then I, once again, downloaded Camera Raw version 5.7, and then did the following:
I double clicked on the downloaded Camera_Raw_5.7 dmg and then double clicked on the cameraprofiles.mpkg
Then I installed the camera raw.plugin by going to (Macintosh hard drive) /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Plug-Ins/CS4/File Formats, which was empty (somehow my previous version of Camera Raw was already gone).
Then dragged the new camera raw plugin from the dmg to the same folder.
I restarted my computer and there STILL is no Camera RAW in my Photoshop!! Good grief! Any more suggestions? Maybe you and I need to screen-share....
do you have any version of adobe bridge installed on the mac
camera raw come default with adobe bridge
so you can install the latest version of adobe bridge and you will get the camera raw latest version
I do have Adobe Bridge on the computer. How do I install the latest version?
If in photoshop cs4 you go to Photoshop>About Plug-in, is there any listing for camera raw?
(if photoshop cs4 is seeing more than one camera raw plugin, that might cause the issue)
If in Bridge cs4 you go to Bridge is there a camera raw preferences listed?
Any later version of bridge other than bridge cs4 that shipped with photoshop cs4, won't work with photoshop cs4, because specific versions of bridge and photoshop go together.
you can download it from adobe website
but the latest version is adobe bridge creative cloud , its up-to you whether to go for demo or take the subscription for adobe creative cloud
because all the latest updates for the camera raw file support are there
please go to this link and check the version required for your camera
Yes, but that means Kate has to pay for something, when generally photoshop cs4 and camera raw 5.7 should work just fine for her particular camera.
The goal is to get the software she already has working.
kate are you using mac or windows???
