RAW Will Not Open in ACR

Discussion in 'Retouching and Post Processing' started by Marlene, Oct 5, 2008.

  1. I downloaded the 4.5 plug-in for Camera Raw and put in these folders -

    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS3\Plug-Ins\File Formats and
    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Plug-Ins\CS3\File Formats but I will get a message ".... is not a supported image file. You may need an updated version of this software to open this image."

    Am I missing something?

  2. Why did you manually download the update? Surely it would have been better to let PS do it automatically?
  3. Remove the first one and check if you have any old Nikon programs still installed. In the old days Picture Project/Capture would install a NEF codec that would interfere with ACR. This has been resolved a few years ago when they went from Capture to CaptureNX.
  4. Nikon Message Center was the culprit.


  5. Cheers Kees and Marlene, another useful bit of info!!
