    Camera Raw / DNG Converter Downloads

    leosantare Level 1



      I am having a very hard time understanding the Camera Raw and the DNG Converter downloads. The link below is the Adobe site for all windows, Camera Raw and DNG downloads.


      Adobe - Adobe Camera Raw and DNG Converter : For Windows


      As you can see version 7.1 and before offers the option to download the Camera Raw OR the DNG Converter.

      Where as version 7.2 to current, (10.0) only offers the Camera Raw + the DNG download.


      For a CS6 user, how do I download the Camera Raw 9.1.1 only, without the DNG Converter 9.1.1?

      How do I download the current, DNG Converter 10.0 only without the Camera Raw 10.0?


      I understand if my camera doesn't support the version of Camera Raw I am using, I need to use the DNG Converter. However, I can always use the most up to date version of the DNG Converter, regardless of what version of Camera Raw my version of Photoshop supports. Is this correct?


      Do you recommend to upgrade from Photoshop CS5 to CS6 just for the Camera Raw version?

      Photoshop CS5 supports up to Camera Raw 6.7.1

      Photoshop CS6 supports up to Camera Raw 9.1.1


      I can see upgrading to Photoshop CS6, if the camera I plan on using is supported in Camera Raw 9.1.1. This would save me the extra step in having to use the DVG Converter. However, the Cannon camera I'm looking at right now is not supported in Camera Raw 9.1.1 and I would have to use the DNG Converter anyways.
