I have PS5 and Lightroom 5.6. I use an Olympus E M-1 camera. When I went to send a RAW photo from LR to PS, I get a message saying that I needed to update Camera Raw. I never use Camera Raw. So after a live chat, I downloaded DNG Converter 8.3 to support the E M-1 RAW files. The converter is in my Mac Applications folder. Do I need to do anything else with it? I still get the same message and can't send my E M-1 photos from Lightroom to Photoshop. I have no problem sending them from Aperture. PS does support my RAW files. Thanks
Moving this discussion to the Adobe Camera RAW forum.
The DNG converter is a program that you run independently of Lightroom or Photoshop. You use it to create digital negative copies of your raw files. These DNG copies contain the original raw image data, but are in a standardized file format. Consequently, you are able open the DNG files with Adobe products. Just having the DNG converter on your computer will not make it possible for you to open the raw files in older versions of software. You have to use the converter to create files that are compatible with what you are using.
