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?
Sounds like your loading the presets (Profiles) when using the Camera Raw filter inside of photoshop?
(Profiles accessible from the Basic panel)
It doesn't matter whether I'm using Camera Raw inside of Photoshop or going directly to ACR from Bridge (or Windows Explorer). Same result, same error message.
I've only seen that happen with the camera raw filter, since Profile Presets created with Camera Raw proper will not work in the Camera Raw filter.
So even in camera raw proper you go Load some presets and get that message?
Do you know what version of camera raw the presets were created with?
I recently upgraded to OS Mojave and PS CC and next thing I knew my ACR presets disappeared and when I try and replace them they don’t show under settings. Yes, I have them in the correct folder. I read somewhere that the naming convention had been changed. But I can’t find details on that.
Unfortunately I had a Time Machine conflict with an installed app and Iin the process of ”fixing” it, I had to reformat the drive and lost my backup.
I too work fromBridge andopen directly in AC
You have a different issue.
On the mac side the presets go in
Users/User Name/Library/Application Support/Adobe/CameraRaw/Settings
I have the same, or similar, problem. Yes, that is the folder I have them in.
Strangely, some presets do show. But others, that I really need, don’t. Has there been some kind of naming convention change, or thefile extension (.xmp) ?
i open ACR directly from Bridge
Some presets are under the Presets tab and some (the new profile presets) are under the Basic tab.
For me, they were under user presets. 3rd image. The others were populated by adobe presets
Only some of the presets are missing. This issues applies to User Presets, (I never use the canned presets that Adobe includes.) For example, I have the VSCO Portra film pack. Before the latest round of CC updates, I had multiple variations of the Portra 160 presets. Now, only one appears. I verified that all the Portra files are still in the correct folder/directory. If I attempt load a preset file (via "Load Settings") I get the aforementioned error.
Well, I found a solution, sort of. I downgraded Adobe Camera Raw to version 10.5 and all my presets reappeared. Obviously, Adobe made some changes in the latest version that rendered these presets incompatible. Guess I won't be updating for awhile. 😞
How do you go back to Camera Raw 10.5?
I have reverted back 2 versions of PS from 20.0.1 to 20 to 19.1.17 but the version of Camera Raw stays the same (188.8.131.52) and the presets still don't show up
does this 'plug-in' allow you to launch Camera Raw from Bridge?
Yes, Camera Raw is the Plug-In that launches from Bridge and inside PS.
It is weird that when you downgrade Photoshop, it doesn't automatically downgrade ACR.
That worked. Thanks so much for the help.
I can't believe we're the only two with this issue.
Please keep me informed if you find out more or if adobe fix acr
Thanks for the tipp, which immediately solved the issue for me. On a side note, instead of ACR 10.5, I‘ve re-installed ACR 11.0.
Phew, Adobe is breaking many things recently...
Tried ACR 11.1 - didn't work; Tried ACR 10.5 and IT WORKED!!! Thank God!
Clearly Adobe has not been QA testing the latest version of ACR.
Thanks to rbellphoto for the tip!
Cheers! I can finally do some work.
Thanks for the advice to go back to RAW 10.5 - I had the exact same issue regarding my VSCO presets, not visible at all in 11.1, but going back to 10.5 totally worked. It's been a frustrating 2 days, my upgrade to Capture One v12 also went totally wrong as well, not keen to update Photoshop either. Clearly something wrong with Adobe's most recent upgrade with regard to Camera Raw.
Thanks again for the solution rbellphoto!
Where are they stored?
Find your presets that have disappeared from the Presets panel (Application Support > Adobe > CameraRaw > Settings > User Presets), back them up in an unrelated directory, open them in a text editor, remove the following two lines and save:
Doing that will enable these presets for all raw files, instead only some (for example, older raw files but not newer raw files).
In some text edit files I see the - CameraProfileDigest
And on some I see the - CameraProfile, which is often called Adobe Standard.
Not necessarily both in the same file.
Remove the 2 lines entirely, or rename ?
Is there a way to batch edit and find and replace the two lines?Probably not since the two lines are not necessarily the same for all?
Are you saying these 2 lines are the reason ACR 11 can't see/open the presets ?
It worked!!! Thank you. Now to change 50 more presets
Oh no, did we find a way to batch rename these?
I did with notepad++, using a macro. It took me 2 minutes
Having the same issue. Will there be a fix soon ?
I have the exact same problem, also for my VSCO Presets. They work perfectly in Lightroom Classic though... Renaming them one by one is not really an option for me, I have far too many.
My lost presets don't show up in the profile browser either.
I hope Adobe will fix this soon, until then I'll have to use CR 10.5
I also use the vsco presets on 90% of my work and now they are unavailable smh Hopefully Adobe fixes this soon
Just to confirm, ACR 11.0 works the same for me. 11.1 did introduce the issue.
Yes, but I couldn’t downgrade to 11. Only to 10.5
