There are multiple "Library" folders on a Mac. Start with the one on the root of the hard disk, not the one in your user home directory.
Yes, there are, but the only Library folder in which I could find Application Support is the one in the Useer Home Directory.
>the only Library folder in which I could find Application Support is the one in the Useer Home Directory.
That's the wrong one, Nancy,
This is the correct location:
NameOfYourHardDisk/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Plug-ins/CS2/File Formats/
Note that the path begins at the ROOT LEVEL, not your username.
If you _DON'T_ have a /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Plug-ins/CS3/File Formats/Camera Raw.plugin then your Bridge install is hosed...so either you mucked it up or the original install was faulty. Either way, the only safe thing is uninstall/reinstall to make sure everything is in the proper place. Otherwise you'll continue to have problems.
Ramo, that is great! The file was indeed there, and the Plug-in slid right in.
THank you,. thank you.
Now, where do I put the ASdpbe DMG converter?
>Now, where do I put the ASdpbe DMG converter?
Wherever you want, Nancy. Even your desktop will work, if you like clutter. :) The Adobe DNG Converter is a stand-alone application; it runs on its own.
Ramon. In the Applications folder? Or loose on the hard drive?
One more serious quetion, Thee "Open in Camera Raw" os still grayed out in Bridge. By opening Bridge and double clicking I can get the photo to open in CR, but in Photoshop.
If this is the way it must be, then I shall be thankful for little things. But is there a way to tell it to open in Bridge?
>In the Applications folder? Or loose on the hard drive?
Wherever it suits you best, Nancy. It makes no difference whatsoever.
I'm not sure I follow your last question, though. What kind of file is it? How do you expect it to open? There may be a typo or omission there:
>By opening Bridge and double clicking I can get the photo to open in CR, but in Photoshop.
Sorry, I wasn't clear. If I double click on an icon in Bridge for a photo taken in Raw, then Camera Raw opens with the photo, not in Bridge, but in Photoshop. My question is, How can I cause the photo to open in Camera Raw in Bridge? "Open in Camera Raw" in the drop down menu in File>Open in Camera Raw is still grayed out.
Now that the plug-in is properly installed, you may need to purge the cache for that folder. Also, Command R is the keyboard shortcut to open hosted in Bridge...
Check your Preferences:
Bridge > Preferences > General > Behavior > Double-Click Edits Camera Raw Settings in Bridge. Check that box,
I did that long since, but it didn't help.
Someone suggested that I purge my cache, but that looks like a pretty scary thing to do.
Will it remove all the photo icons in Bridge? How will I find anything?
I have to ask all these questions because in this whole mess both photoshop and bridge help have disappeared. I keep getting a message:
b This topic is in the Help system of another product. To view the topic, install that product. file:///Library/Application%20Support/Adobe/Help/en_US/Bridge/2.0/toc.html
This maakes no sense at all: What product?
It refers me to Apple help on line, but there is no solution there. I will phone Support tomorrow, and perhaps there will be someone there who knows what this is about. The About for Adobe Help 1.0 and 1.1, when I bring them up in Spotlight, both claim they belong to Photoshop.
Thanks. That's scary, tho. I'll do it as an absolutely last resort
Command R does nothing.
How do you purge the cache for just that folder, in case I get brave?
Bridge > Tools menu > Cache > Purge Cache for 'foldername'
Get used to the idea of having to purge the Cache often. It gets corrupted easily and often. Cache management is the Achilles heel of Bridge at present.
It worked. The grayed out instruction came up, and the photo opened in Cameraq Raw in Bridge.
Thank you. Thank you.
THank you, thank you. You were right on, and I was a cowaard. But I purged the folder, and now Bridge is working with Camera Raw.
Cool. . .now it's working like it should.

One specific advantage of having DNG Converter on the desktop is that you can also drag and drop individual files onto it, instead of being restricted to processing whole folders.
A number of posts throughout ALL the Adobe.com forums were lost today due to data corruption and the resulting rollback of the forum message database that was necessary to restore the forums.
Paraphrasing my response to #19:
>One specific advantage of having DNG Converter on the desktop is that you can also drag and drop individual files onto it, instead of being restricted to processing whole folders.
That's fine if you like that. I just don't work that way myself.
I was not presuming to make a judgment about virtual clutter on the desktop.
Working on a Mac, where the application window does not necessarily obscures the desktop, my virtual desktop is a very clean, solid gray with next to nothing on it. My physical desktop in the cave I work in, on the other hand, is the messiest, most cluttered one you can ever imagine. :|
