Thank you, Tom.
Does anyone know if v4.6 Camera Raw will work for the D90 NEF's if installed in PSE6.
If you go to the second link in the message above you will see that the Nikon D90 is one of the cameras that has been added. If it is listed, then it will be supported in both Photoshop and compatible versions of Photoshop Elements. So, yes, it will work with your D90.
I just installed and tried v4.6 in PSE6.
It will recognize the D80, D90, & D300 NEFs.
I'm getting extremely bright red areas in some of the raw photos, and can't get rid of them in some photos.....?????
Overal it works pretty well....I just don't understand why Im getting those bright red spots in the lighter areas of the photo.
Those are the 3 Nikon models that I have that I shoot RAW.
> why Im getting those bright red spots in the lighter areas of the photo.
That's the clipping warning, which you can turn off by clicking on the triangle at the upper right hand corner of the histogram in the ACR preview. That means your image is overexposed and all those red spots represent areas that are totally blown out.
You can try to rescue them with the Exposure and Recovery slider.
You really need to read up on Camera Raw. You desperately need Jeff's Book (CLICK HERE).
Phew! After the announcement of CS4 at Photokina (Sep. 23rd) being announced, I already was afraid CS3 users won't see no Camera Raw update anymore after ACR 4.5. Glad that I was wrong.
After a quick check-up it seems ACR 4.6 Beta is working fine on an AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 6000+ CPU running Windows XP SP2.
Thank you, Tom and everyone in the Lightroom, DNG, and Camera Raw teams!
I was under a large tree with a lot of shade taking pics of my grandkids & their dog.....but part of the sky roke thru the leaves and thats where the "red" spots are...
I note that the release notes don't include any mention of the Panasonic LX3. I'm at work now, but has anyone had a go at those RAW files to see if they work?
It doesn't seem to support the LX3. Bummer. I have no idea how to use that SilkyPix program, nor do I want to learn. Please Adobe, add the Panasonic Lumix LX3 to ACR!!
Can I use Camera Raw 4.6 in Photoshop CS2? It seems not working for the me. Is it the reason that I have to update to CS3?
Camera Raw 3.x <--> Photoshop CS2
Camera Raw 4.x <--> Photoshop CS3
Camera Raw 5.x <--> Photoshop CS4
>That means your image is overexposed and all those red spots represent areas that are totally blown out.
Ramon, AFAIK, the red warning only means that at least ONE channel is blown (e.g., blue if shooting outdoors, red indoors under tungsten, etc.). If the other channels still have info, the Recovery slider will recover this.
Of course, if all channels blown out to 255, your goose is cooked.
Same difference. :D No, you're right, but that's what I meant all along. For the purpose of Lamont's question in post #5, it was necessary to explain to him what the "red spots" he was referencing mean. He was not aware that it's the highlights clipping warning.
Got it; I might have been being a bit literal (but then it is useful info, and someone who does not know what the red spots mean probably didn't know the other aspect either, is what I was thinking). Cheers, kl
In that case, I will have to consider upgrading Photoshop vs getting Nikon Capture NX2.

You could just download the DNG Converter and use that to convert your raws to DNGs. Or, yes, either upgrade to CS4 or get Capture NX2...but the advantage of getting CS4 is in addition to the Camera Raw 5 upgrade, you also get the rest of Photoshop CS4 including Bridge CS4 (lot better than Bridge CS3) and all the new functionality and productivity that would bring you.
