Quote: "ACR 2.4 is the only version of Camera Raw that is still available for download for Photoshop CS. If your camera was added in no later version of ACR you have two options. The first option is to upgrade to the current version of Photoshop which uses ACR 4.1. It supports a lot more cameras, and yours is one of them.
If upgrading is not an option for you, then you should go online and download the latest version of the DNG converter (currently 4.1) and use it to create Digital Negative (DNG) copies of your raw images. Those DNG files can then be opened in Photoshop CS using ACR 2.4."
Hi Peter, and thanks for your reply.
The only download that was available for CS was the DNG converter with ACR 2.4. I did download that & it didn't work. I looked for what you suggested, the ACR 4.1 with DNG converter.....I found the download, but it clearly stated that it was not compatible with any version of Photoshop earlier than CS3. Did I miss something?
Is upgrading really my only option?! If that's true, major bummer. I don't know what I'll do.
Any other suggestions?
You are not reading it correctly. ACR 4.1 is only compatible with Photoshop CS3, that is true. However, the DNG converter is a separate program, it runs by itself, it is not a Photoshop plug-in. If you use the DNG converter that is packaged with ACR 4.1 you will find that it will create digital negative copies of your raw files that will open with Photoshop CS and ACR 2.4. That is the way it has worked for years. The DNG converter is updated the same as ACR. And if you always make sure you have the latest DNG converter you will be able to convert your raw images or the raw images from any supported camera to a DNG file that can be opened with Camera Raw 2.4.
I sure did read that incorrectly - thanks for the clarification Jim. I was a bit flustered this morning trying to figure this out. I had planned on getting these photos to people later this morning - this was a tiny wrench in my plans. I've downloaded the converter and it's doing it's thing right now.
