I'm hoping somebody out there can help me with a small but annoying Lightroom/Photoshop issue. (I have seen a similar post on the topic here but it was for an earlier version of Photoshop Camera Raw and the answers didn't help me).
Whenever I choose Edit in > Photoshop in Lightroom to edit a file I get the error message "This version of Lightroom may require the Photoshop Camera Raw plug-in verson 9.3 for full compatibility". Now, I know I can get Lightroom to render the file or hit continue and either way will get the job done. But I'd like to fix whatever is causing this. I'm on a Mac running OSX Yosemite 10.10.5, I have Lightroom 6.3 (says Camera Raw 9.3 in the About Lightroom section) and I'm using Photoshop CS6 13.0.6 x64. I have tried clicking on Help > Update in both Lightroom and Photoshop but this has not solved the problem. I have also tried following the instructions on the Adobe website to manually update the Camera Raw plugin that is meant to be located in (from memory) Library (root folder) > Application Support > Adobe > Plugins but I don't have a Plugins folder (and yes I am looking in the Library under the root folder, not under my user name).
Camera Raw 9.1.1 is the LAST version that is compatible with Photoshop CS6. You will not be able to update to 9.3. Also, Lightroom in now up to version 6.6. See the note in this article
CS6 can only be updated to ACR 9.1.1 from 11 months ago, and will never be able to use a newer ACR version, so it is possible for you to enable settings in LR that cannot be interpreted by ACR 9.1.1 on the way into PS.
The way around this is to Render to TIF/PSD using LR Adjustments which will tell LR to export a TIF/PSD file and then that file will be opened in PS.
