With the most recent updates to Bridge/PS/ACR, some of my presets have disappeared from Camera RAW. The actual files are still in the correct folder, but are no longer recognized by ACR. If I try to load them manually, I get the following error: Unable to load raw conversion settings. The Camera Raw settings in the selected ".XMP" metadata file are not compatible with this image.
Very frustrating since I use many of these presets. Any suggestions on how to make them compatible again?
I also ran into this issue: very frustrating. I found all of the information here incredibly useful (thank you everyone!).
This information might be helpful explaining what's happening (ie. the files likely didn't get converted over with the update):
What I did try was importing a zip file of my presets and it appeared to work on the batch I imported (see the «Import profiles and presets» section in the link above).
this worked for me, thank you! 🙂
Thank you so much for this. I really wish they would just fix this.
can t find this switch on photoshop 😞
Same problem!!!! Adobe's done it again! Took something that everyone depends on and threw it out or hid it. Where are the PRESETS in Photoshop RAW???? I drop my RAW files into PS, it opens up in PS RAW, and I select one of my 70+ presets.... there's not even a preset MENU now, let alone my presets! Ugh! Adobe strikes again! This is a good example of why "subscription" based software "rental" is NOT a good thing. You wake up one day, and everything's different and you can't go back!
UPDATE AND SOLUTION: After a very frustrating chat session -total waste of my time - with Adobe, and installing previous versions of PS, I went back to the chat line and got an agent who knew what he was doing. First, DON'T upgrade to the latest version of PS. Next, he sent me a link to a DMG (for MAC users) for a "Clean Up" tool and we "Cleaned Up" Camera Raw (uninstalled.) Next, he sent me a link to the previous version of Camera RAW and I installed it (PS must be closed, of course.)
Now CameraRAW version 188.8.131.527 and PS 21.1.3 are working fine.
Here's the link to the above, but you're on your own:
With PS closed, please use this cleaner tool and remove Camera raw only: https://swupmf.adobe.com/webfeed/CleanerTool/mac/AdobeCreativeCloudCleanerTool.dmg
Then install the previous version of CameraRaw:
