>have the DNG converter 4.2, which is recommended for this camera.
Wrong! You should always run the latest version of the DNG Converter, that means 5.3.
All versions support any and all versions supported in earlier versions.
Thank you! I just went with the one that was recommended for 'my' camera. Hopefully this fixes the issue. Thanks!
No, you still don't understand. DNG converter 4.2 might have been the first version that supported your camera. But that doesn't mean that it is the "recommended" version that you should use. The DNG converter is an evolving program, and you should always try to have the latest version. There are constant little changes made to the converter that might be beneficial to you.
I don't understand why you got a message that there was an update. ACR 3.7 was the last version released that was compatible with Photoshop CS2. And there haven't been any updates since, nor will there ever be.
Actually, I do understand about the DNG converter now. It's an evolving program, I get that.
As for the update, I don't know either. I thought it was weird because I know anything after 3.7 is not for CS2. I had a window pop up and tell me there were updates from adobe and it was all legit. It was connected to Adobe. I had run a 'repair' of CS2 and so maybe that replaced some current files with the ones in the original software, but I don't know. When I go into my Adobe folders the camera raw file is the one it should be.
I have downloaded the 5.3 and I will convert some RAW images and compare them to see if that corrected the issue. For me, I shoot Real Estate photography so correct color is a big deal to these people. The most noticable place I see color loss is in wood, wood cabinets in a kitchen for example. In stead of rich dark wood it lacks color. This doesn't do well when you are tying to capture a $80k kitchen full of custom wood cabinets. I have also taken the exact same shot in jpeg and it comes out perfectly. So, I know it's somewhere between the DNG converter and opening the image in Camera Raw that the color get's lost. I realize that most of the people on here have forgotten more than I know about how this software works. I try to get the shot I want on site and therefore I have not relied on software much over the years. But, I'm trying to learn how to use this stuff and I appreciate your help while I learn it.
I really appreciate your responses!
> this update to the Camera Raw is now changed the color of all my photos
You probably have DNG files converted prior this upgrade. How do they show up in the upgraded ACR?
The Adobe Update Manager (AUM) is like that, it may show you that there is an update available when you already have that same update installed, or it may fail to alert you that there is an update you don't have, or it will fail during the update. I haven't relied on it or used it for years.
