Exactly WHERE have you installed Camera Raw? Did you move the Camera Raw.plugin from the mounted .dmg file to the following location:
Root Library/Application Support/Adobe/Plug-ins/CS3/File Formats is the only correct location
Have you restarted Bridge with the option key down to reset the preferences?
Camera Raw 4.2 works fine under Leopard...if and only if it's installed correctly...
You only have to look through some of the thread subjects and/or do a search, but there are known issues with Raw processing on Mac's Leopard. Adobe has said to anticipate a fix around Mid-November. I'm not sure what Camera you use, but there is also a recent issue with Canon 40D cameras with the 1.0.4 firmware. Likewise expect a fix from Adobe (probably at the same time). In addition, there are "hints" that both Canon will have a 1.0.5, and that Apple will have a 10.5.1 also in the near future.
Can you bring up Camera Raw preferences from inside Bridge?
I have placed Camera Raw 4.2 (14) inRoot Library/Application Support/Adobe/Plug-ins/CS3/File Formats. It is the only fie in that location. I have on several occasions restart Bridge with the option key down to reset preferences.
That is what is so curious, I can bring up the Camera Raw preferences inside Bridge; but even with Always open JPEG & TIFF Files using Camera Raw checked as active I can not open in Camera Raw files that would open under OS 10.4.
If you can bring up the Camera Raw preferences on Bridge, and the correct version number is in the title bar of the preferences dialog, then Camera Raw is installed correctly.
Now make sure the "Prefer Adobe Camera Raw for JPEG and TIFF Files" is checked in the Bridge preferences.
After that checkbox is set, then purge the Bridge cache for any problem folders.
Now you should be able to open JPEGs and TIFFs in Camera Raw.
Well it was the last suggestion that did the trick. I purged the Bridge cache in just one file and now the "Open In Camera Raw" menu is enabled.
Thanks for the help.
