Please provide me a way to download Camera Raw Version 8.8.
What version of photoshop and operating system are you using?
What camera do you have?
I’ll use any version of photoshop, it doesn’t matter. I’m on a Mac and the raw files I’m working on were shot on a CanonGX1, shouldn’t matter though. Please help with finding me Camera Raw 8.8. Thank you

It does make a difference. If you are using the Photoshop with CS6, if you download the latest version of ACR it will not work. If you are using a very old copy of Photoshop, than support for that version of PS is no longer available. If you are using the most recent version you could simply download the latest ACR via the Adobe Creative Cloud app and you'd be good. If you are using a pirate copy of Photoshop, there's not much help that anyone here can supply.
So yes it does make a difference.
So what version of PS are you using?
I’d be willing to use any photoshop in order to use camera raw 8.8. Let’s say photoshop 2014

Excuse me? How would that link at all help me?

It shows you the various options one can select from to get get Photoshop (and Lightroom). Do you really think an Adobe forum is the place to look for free copies of Photoshop. Photoshop 2014 is no longer available anywhere. You can download a copy of the current version of PS right now from the site I just linked you and you can deal with your raw images.
If you have any questions on how to use PS-CC 2018 we'll be glad to help.
Please don't be a fool. You are misunderstanding my minor request. I said
nothing about free copies of Photoshop. The link you sent me is highly
accessible for anyone that knows how to use the internet. Regardless, I
already have an account with Adobe and am paying a monthly subscription. I
hope you do not work for Adobe, as you are terribly misinformed. Photoshop
2014 is available under my creative cloud along with many other versions,
I've attached a screen shot. This is besides the point though, as I am less
concerned with what version of photoshop I'm using and more concerned with
having Camera Raw Version 8.8. Whatever Photoshop is required to use that
version of camera raw I would be willing to use. If you cannot provide me a
way to download Camera Raw Version 8.8 or a version that has identical Auto
settings as 8.8, please let me know now so we can end the conversation.
Although, if you do work for Adobe, this request should be an extremely
simple matter for the company to handle. After speaking and chatting with
several Adobe agents in India, nobody was able to resolve my request. They
ended up referring me to the forum as a place I could get a more informed
answer. Unfortunately, that does not seem to be the case. Through my
creative cloud, I was able to pull up Camera Raw 8.0 (see attached), and
online the oldest version that seems to be offered is version 9.1.1. So
what about 8.8? It has to be accessible!
Sorry for the misunderstanding.
You didn't make it clear you already had a subscription to photoshop cc.
Anyhow, here are the installers for camera raw 8.8
ACPs do not work for adobe. We are just forum volunteers.
Adobe employees have a Red Staff badge.
I am interested in what is different about the Auto setting in 8.8 vs. newer camera raw versions?
Thanks for getting back to me. I hope you both can see this response.
Please see the attached screen shot, as the link you sent me Jeff looks
like it would work, but it is not working. Please help, we are getting
warmer. As for why I need this version of ACR it's because I need to
replicate many photographic prints that were printed using a file that was
processed through camera raw 8.8. The only editing i did to the file in
camera raw was select "auto" on the white balance and "auto" on the rest of
the settings. Apparently, the auto adjustments differ from camera raw
version to version. So it would be highly problematic if I'm unable to get
this downloaded. Thank you
I've already redownloaded everything including my creative cloud app and it
still does the same thing, what should I do to get it to work?

Your not able to download from the link or the install doesn't get you camera raw 8.8?
When I follow the link and download, the pop up in the screen shot I sent you keeps happening.

Unfortunately, the adobe forums don't accept screenshots as attachments. You'll need to actually use the Insert Image button to post a screenshot.

Jeff, do you have a phone number so we can work through this more rapidly.
Please call me XXX-XXX-XXXX. Thank you

OK, now I know what is going on.
First off, please forgive me but I removed your phone number. It is very unwise to leave personal information like that on these boards. If you really really really want to place it here, if you do again I will not remove it.
But I now do know what's going on and no one needs to call you (at least I'm pretty sure).
Over the years Adobe refines their algorithms on how to interpret the raw information. As they refine it they place new codes within ACR and Lightroom to achieve a better and better appearance.
However, with the understanding that as this code is changed people will have exactly the situation that you're having above. So they provide to the user the ability to go back to any of the previous iterations of that code. This code is called the Process Version and can be found in the Calibration tab within ACR as shown below.
What I do not know is which of these was the active Process Version that was used in THAT release of ACR. You can see the various intentions of these process versions here: Process versions in Adobe Camera Raw
What you may have to do is to experiment which version provides the look that you wish to replicate.
Please let us know if this is the solution you were looking for.
Anthony is looking for the Auto-Tone algorithm from ACR 8.8.
Auto-Tone changes are different than Process Version changes.
Using the latest version of ACR 10.5, using Auto Tone in PV4 and PV5 produces the same Tone values. Auto-Tone in PV3 is very slightly different, but in all causes the Auto algorithm changes Vibrance and Saturation which is a very new addition, so changing PV does not change the Auto-Tone algorithm.
I think the solution is for Anthony to install the very first PS CC (before the year started being added) from the CC app, then install the ACR 8.8 update from the links, earlier, and open the particular photo(s) in that older version and do Auto WB and Auto Tone. After that, opening the photos in the newest PS/ACR/Bridge version will be ok as long as the toning sliders are not being touched.
The install for PS CC is available in Other Versions under PS in the CC App:
Thank you both for getting back to me. To be completely clear, see the
image attached. I need it so that when both of the "auto" selections are
made, it replicates version 8.8. Does this apply to what gary or ssprengel
You need to insert or copy/paste images into the web-forum version of the message. Attachments via email are ignored to keep viruses away.
Also, as I've already mentioned, the link that jeff gave me earier in the
message board seems like it should work but it is not working. Can someone
please confirm if they are able to get it working or is there something I'm
missing that I need to do? when I click the link it automatically
downloads, "setup.dmg" I click that then a window comes up with two
folders, one says AdobePatchInstaller the other says payloads. When I click
on the installer the following window comes up see attached. Maybe I'm
supposed to drag something somewhere in replace of something else? not sure.

What version of macOS are you using?
The easiest way to install is as follows after double clicking on the setup.dmg
1. Open the payloads folder
2. Open the AdobeCameraRaw8.0All-120315145303 folder then double click on the /Volumes/AdobeCameraRaw-8.8-CC-mul-AdobeUpdate/payloads/AdobeCameraRaw8.0All- 120315145303.zip
3. Open Assests1>universal folder
4. Copy the Camera Raw.plugin to
Mac HD /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Plug-Ins/CC/File Formats
Jeff I got to those 4 steps already. can you please provide a screen shot of where to copy the plugin to?
