>.I have followed the instructions about replacing the plug in as per the release notes.
Uh huh, well unless you tell us EXACTLY where you installed the plug-in we simply can't give you any further advice sine 90% of the problems usually stem from misunderstanding the installation and incorrect locations...
Jeff, I'm glad someone of your stature is here! I will go and trace the location of the plug in and get back to you right away!
I went to the finder and asked it and here's what it said:
computer [it uses my name]/library/application support/adobe/camera raw
so the other way to read this path would be:
sean hosein/library/application support/adobe/camera raw
Was this the right place?
That's the WRONG location.
Read the instructions on the download page and/or the FAQs of this forum.
You are starting in the WRONG library. Your user name in the path reveals you are in your user Library, and that is wrong. You need to be in the ROOT LEVEL Library.
Mac: /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Plug-ins/CS3/File Formats/
Thanks Ramon - I was not sure what 'root level' library was (I do remember that from the download instructions) so I took a bad guess! I'll go and make the change. Again, thanks for your help. I'll post here and let you know.
Ok I went to the location and found this:
mac/library/application support/adobe/plug-ins/cs3/file formats/dng_cameraraw_4-6_091708.dmg
It turns out that it was here all along - I put in camera raw as two words and not one when I asked the finder and I put the exact name of the camera raw update so you can see it.
I must still be doing something wrong as its still not reading the NEFs from either my Nikon D700 or the NEFs from a D200 that I had before I switched to the D700.
I will go and check the path again - I do not know what else to do.
I checked again and its the right path...and it still doesn't work (i.e. unable to open D700 NEFs...)
Uh, this is the download file...it's a DMG file which you need to mount as a drive so you can copy the files OFF OF IT...
>mac/library/application support/adobe/plug-ins/cs3/file formats /dng_cameraraw_4-6_091708.dmg
Well, I see Jeff has already pointed it out to you. A ".dmg" file is an ARCHIVE that will mount as a disk image when you double-click on it. It contains both the ACR plug-in and the DNG Converter application.
You need to double click on that image and, once it mounts as a volume, COPY the ARC plug-in ONLY and install that as per the instructions.
Hi Ramon and Jeff,
thanks so much for your advice -- it works! It works!! You guys are great.
Now another question: when I opened the .dmg file, there were two things inside; the ACR beta plug-in and a DNG converter (and yes, I will now rush out and buy Jeff's book). Should I put the DNG converter in any special folder?
>Should I put the DNG converter in any special folder?
No. That's a stand-alone application. You can put it on your desktop, in your applications folder or anywhere else it suits you. I keep it in my Applications folder.
Well thanks so much for your help. ACR 4.6 is great...and quite powerful compared to the earlier versions I was using.
Have a great day.
