CS4 Bridge and D90 NEF (RAW)

HELP HELP HELP

I have recently purchased a bran new D90 and am having major issues in getting PS bridge to open the RAW (NEF) files in the CR utility. I have reviewed all the posts on here and tried to follow all the instructions!

I have
1) downloaded the latest CR version from the Adobe website and installed it (version 5.2)

2) removed the NIKON NEF codec

3) purged the Cache for the folder that the NEF files are located in.

None of this seems to have helped!!

Has anyone managed to solve this??

PLEASE help!

It would be nice to know what operating system you are using. Additionally, here are some things to check on:

1. Are you sure you installed Camera Raw correctly? Did you delete the old version? Has it been removed from the Adobe file structure?

2. In Photoshop, go to Help/about Plug-ins and click on Camera Raw. There should only be one instance listed and when you click on it Photoshop should indicate that you have 5.2.

Re: CS4 Bridge and D90 NEF (RAW)

Hi Jim,
I am using windows Vista (32bit - can't afford to upgrade everything to 64 bit architecture!).

1.) I belive i installed it correctly(?) I opened the Zip downloaded from the adobe support site (version 5.2). I didn't delete the old version (Opps?). If i didnt delete the old version then it would still be in the file structure.

2) Did this and found 2 versions! 5.0.0.178 & 5.2. I opened the plugins folder in C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS4\Plug-ins\File Formats and deleted the camera raw plugin. (but there was only 1 not 2 versions)!

after your reply i thought i would try to rerun the 5.2 install and see if two versions appeared again - NOPE! It I dont know what the installer from adobe does, but it seems the only way to get two verisons to apear in the plugin meni on help is to manualy copy the camera.8bi into the file formats folder.

thanks again for your help
Confused,
Mark

Get rid of the old plug-in ASAP!

At the very least, put a tilde in front of its file name, and hide it somewhere innocuous, like your Documents folder.

Re: CS4 Bridge and D90 NEF (RAW)

It seems that the automatic installation features are still not working properly. I'm still using Photoshop CS3, so I haven't followed the new stuff very closely. There are installation instructions on the download page for ACR. Go back and review those instructions. There should be somewhere in there that will tell you what folder ACR should be placed in. Put it there manually, don't rely on the automatic installer. Then get rid of any other copies of Camera Raw.8bi. You don't need the older versions for anything. If you keep them around they will just create problems, as you are experiencing.

Just as an aside, you don't have to "upgrade everything to 64 bit architecture" if you use a 64-bit version of Vista.

I have dozens of 32-bit applications running quite happily and PS can see 7219MB of my 8000MB of RAM. I give it 70%, which is within its Ideal Range in the Performance settings.
