The camera-raw supported applications list is somewhat misleading and not updated for ACR 8.7, obviously.
The misleading part is that PS-CS6/CC/CC-2014 all can be updated to ACR 8.7, even though the list lists ACR 8.3 for CC and CS6. The reason for the lower version for CC and CS6 is that both those have lower OS-version requirements (Vista/OSX 10.6) than ACR 8.7, and ACR 8.3 was the last version of ACR to work with the same lower version compatibility.
If you have PS-CS6 or newer and Win7 or OSX 10.7 or newer then you can update your camera raw plug-in to ACR 8.7, but if your OS is older or your version of PS is older then you can’t.
I downloaded and installed Camera Raw 8.7, my Lightroom 4 will not acknowledge it. I have CS6 and it works there. My operating system is Windows 7.
Can you help with the Lightroom?? Thanks for your prompt reply.
Thank you, I have downloaded ACR 8.7 and it works with my CS6 but not Lightroom 4. Is it possible to get it to work in LR?
ACR 8.7 is only used as a plug-in for Photoshop.
You have to pay for a new version of LR 5.7 to have LR recognize the 7D.2 raw files natively.
Or you can convert to DNGs using the DNG Converter 8.7.
In general Adobe only updates the current version of software for new cameras and LR 4 has long since not been the current LR version.
