The Lumix DMC G6 (if that's your camera) was first supported in Camera Raw 8.1 which is compatible with Elements 12 and later.
What happens when you try to open those Raw files exactly? What error message?
Thank you so much for taking time to answer.
I've checked the links you send me and it looks like my raw files should be supported in Elements 12.
When I try to open Raw files from DMC G6 nothing happens and I get following message:
Cold not complete your request because the file appears to be from a camera that is not supported by the installed version of Camera Raw.
Please visit the Camera Raw help for documentation for additional information.
I had Lumix G2 and no problems opening RAW with Elements, I can't quite figure out what to do.
Have you checked Help->Updates to see if there is one available? You probably don't have the last version of Camera Raw that was compatible with Photoshop Elements 12 installed.
The G6 was first supported with Camera Raw plug-in 8.1.
PSE12 can only work with ACR plug-in versions 8.1 to 8.5 so you should be good to go.
Maybe upload one of your images that doesn’t work to dropbox.com and post a public share link, here, so someone can take a look.
I appreciate your suggestions. I am pleasantly surprised by the response I am getting, you are a part of a very nice community. You were right, I updated PSE12 and it's working
Thank you very much
Glad it's working but I don't get why an update was required.
PSE12 should open those Raw files out of the box. Without any updates.
Good suggestion but not sure why that step is required.
The Lumix G6 is supported in Raw 8.1 and PSE12 ships with Raw 8.1.
I am not sure why but updating PSE12 worked for me. Thanks!
