Does anyone know which version of the camera raw plugin I need in Photoshop CS in order to open raw files from my D200? I installed camera raw 2.4 but the files still won't open.
Thanks

Photoshop CS is not compatible with versions 3.0 or later of the Camera Raw plug-in. The D200 got ACR support with ver. 3.3. I don't have a D200 or CS so I can't check. Anyone?

See here:

Also found this from an earlier post - I think you may need to upgrade to CS2:

3.7 is correct.
Don't get lightroom.
CS3 is far better place to put you hard earned bucks.
Like a said above, you can't just add ACR 3.7 to CS. However, regarding an upgrade does anyone know of the upgrade price yet from CS to CS3 or from CS2 to CS3? Any difference in price? Hmmm.

I think that your statement is a bit over the top as the programme that works for one is not necessarily the one for another.
Personally as a full time photographer I find Lightroom much more suited to processing lots of images than Photoshop.
I use the two programmes in tandem but use PS less. Kinda funny as I used to think it was the "b" all in imaging work.

I think I'm going to go with Gale's suggestion. I played with CS3 at work today and I was blown away. Time to start saving the pennies...and riding my bicyle to work and put some of that gas money towards some new software:biggrin:

I think you have another option besides upgrading to CS2 or CS3. You should be able to run your images through the DNG converter (free from adobe), and then use ACR 2.4.

Having said that, I would bite the bullet and upgrade as the latest ACR 4.0 is MUCH better. While I really like Lr, in its current form it is not a replacement for photoshop. The cost of the upgrade to CS3 will be about the same as buying Lr, and you get way more for your money with CS3. BTW, the latest incarnation of bridge is really good, as are smart objects and the latest photomerge. So, like Gale, I would suggest upgrading to CS3.

But, before you do, you might want to try Lr as it is a pretty cool program with lots of potential (Geoff will be happy then :biggrin:).

Cheers
