Benjamin, I thank you very much for your prompt and helpful e-reply!
I've downloaded and installed the ACR plug-in for v. 126.96.36.1991 Now, files open in Camera Raw, as expected, when using Bridge CS6. That's great.
I have two questions, Ben:
1 -- -- Although the first three options that I mentioned above (working from Bridge) are successful, I'm unable to open JPEGs in Camera Raw directly from Photoshop [as in option (4) above]. I'd like to be able to open JPEG files from PS; is there a preference I need to set to get PS to recognize and enable ACR?
2 -- -- Should I now delete all files related to AdobeCameraRaw7.0ALL? Or are those files required to run with the new plug-in?
Thank you, my friend.
Thank you, again, Ben.
Your suggested preference settings for PS are identical to my current settings. I quit and relaunched PS, but see no difference; the files with .jpg extensions become grayed when I choose Camera Raw from the Enabled drop-down list. Might there be another approach you can suggest?
Re the ACR7.0ALL files, I'll leave them alone. ( ; - )
Bye for now.
You're welcome, Warren!
Hmmm... Try this reset: Cmd+Opt+Shift as you open Photoshop. Select yes when asked if you want to reset the preference file. Might not work, but worth a try. A lot of mysterious problems can be cleared up by the reset
If that doesn't work, I would go through Bridge and select ACR there.
Alas, that reset option didn't work; I tried it twice. ( ; - (
You certainly know a lot about Adobe PS. Many thanks.
