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!

Does anyone know how to fix Camera Raw in Bridge so you can see the images? I can double click on the icons and it opens in the Photoshop CS4 Raw editor, but I can't see the actual NEF images in Bridge. Thanks!

Yes, purge the cache for the "offending" folders in Bridge, IF camera raw is installed in the correct location (see the FAQs)

And I have the CS4 CREATIVE SUIT. When I want to open my raw files in Bridge and Photoshop I can't open them. The camera raw plug-in is version 5.0.0.178. Can you help me please? I don't know what to do.

Thank you,

Update your Camera RAW plug-in from 5.0 to 5.7 which according to the ReadMe supports the D90. It may work to just use Help / Updates... in Photoshop to automatically get the update, or you may need to download and update manually.

For the latter, go to:

http://www.adobe.com/downloads/updates/

and choose Camera RAW - Macintosh in the dropdown at the top, click Go, then choose the 5.7 update link.

Yesterday I installed the 5.7 Camera Raw Plugin and I could see my raw pictures, but today when I tried to see my raw files I couldn't see them. So, I eliminated the plugin and install again it. Now, I can open my raw files but I can't see the pictures thumbnails, I can see just the NEF thumbnails. And it is a problem because I don't know what picture I' m opening. Can you help me again, please?

Thank you

Fabiola

How are you trying to see your thumbnails?

Bridge should show them, though if you've recently updated the Camera Raw plug-in you may need to clear the cache to get it to regenerate them.  Try Tools - Cache - Purge in Bridge.

You will not be able to see NEF file thumbnails in Explorer unless you add a 3rd party codec.

Thanks to answer my message. I don't know how to clear the cache. I tried to do it, but when I open Bridge and go to tools-cache, their are just two options:

build and export cache and purge cache for folder portrait ( it depends where I am in bridge, for example: If I am in desktop says: purge cache for desktop)

Can you tell me how to do this step by step, please?

The camera Raw version that I download is 5.7 and has three folders: extensions (here is the camera raw 5.0All-070410040127) is this correct?

the second folder is resources, and the last one is Setup (Apr 7, 2010) 

My computer is an Imac, OS X10.6.7

I have the creative suit CS4.

Thanks a lot,

Fabiola

Unfortunately, I'm not a Bridge expert, but I believe you need to purge the cache for the folder in which you'd like to see the raw file thumbnails.  Then it will rebuild the thumbnails.

I am also not a Mac user, so I can't answer your specific question about the download.  I am used to posting in the Photoshop Windows forum; I apologize that I neglected to ask you what system you use.

Hold on the "Option" key when you launch Bridge, there should be a "reset settings" dialog comes up, check on 'purge entire cache" option.

By the way, the "Tools-Purge cache xxx" should work for the specific folder, you are seeing "Purge cache for desktop" because you navigated to desktop in Bridge.

I just installed CS4 on my laptop, along with the Camera Raw 5.1 download for the Nikon D300s.  I've extracted the Camera Raw to Program Files/ Adobe/Adobe Photoshop Cs4/Plugins.  I also put it in File Formats --- I've tried everything I can think of, restarting my computer each time.  In Bridge, only the nef icon for the image shows--- I can open and develop it, but the image itself does not show in Bridge, only the nef icon.  I also  purged the cache.  What am I doing wrong  or what else do I need to do?  Thanks!

I'm confused.  I thought we were to download the Camera Raw that refers to our specific camera --- 5.1 specifices Nikon d300s (my camera).  Camera Raw 5.7 makes no mention of my camera model.

Good grief ,  no !

As mentioned in my response to your other thread:

Once a version of Camera Raw supports a given camera, that camera will be supported in ALL subsequent versions of Camera Raw.

ALL versions of Camera Raw have unannounced bug fixes as well as improvements compared to any earlier version.

Therefore, for CS4 you want 5.7—ALWAYS.

The Camera RAW Readme lists all the camera's it supports. It is a link from the main Camera RAW updates page.
