Please do let me know if it worked or not.
Camera Raw as a filter is only available in Photoshop CC. It will not ever be part of Photoshop CS6.
If you have cs6 (may work with others but never tried). A little trick I do to open my jpeg in camera raw is the following:
1. In photoshop select File > Open
2. Select the file you want to open in camera Raw
3. In the format drop down at the bottom, change it to camera raw
4. Hit open
that's it your in camera raw with the JPEG
Image for visual:
To be clear, the original question was regarding the Camera Raw filter. This is a filter that is available from the filter menu from within Photoshop CC. That filter is not available as a feature in Photoshop CS6. The procedure you are explaining has nothing to do with the Camera Raw filter. It has always been an option to open JPEG and TIF images in Camera Raw using the procedure you describe.
Jim has set the record straight.
What you described is no "trick". It's the standard procedure.
…and it has NOTHING to do with the Camera Raw filter.
Hi Jim, Does it apply to CS5 as well? I got CS5 and don't have the camera raw option under the filters either.
Of course it does! Camera Raw as a filter simply never existed before CC.
