Hi Olesian,

As Chuck said, Adobe Camera Raw cannot open psd files.

ACR can open jpeg, raw, and tif image (but the tif image cannot have any extra layers).

Within Photoshop, one can select the ACR Filter and work on psd files as well as tif images that do have layers. It is recommended to make the image a Smart Object before selecting the ACR Filter to maintain non-destructive editing.

Hope all this helps, let us know

Are you editing the image in Camera Raw or Photoshop? Are you trying to reopen the psd in Camera Raw? If so, you can't open psd files in Camera Raw, only Photoshop.

With all due respect, but I am able to open a PSD file in the Camera RAW plug-in.

In Photoshop: Menu Open --> select .psd file --> options "all files" and "Camera RAW" --> Open button

This opens the .psd file in the Camera RAW plug-in.

Of course, it could be that I am using a bug (but in this case, I'd prefer to consider it to be a feature…)

That is the "Open As," and it flattens the psd file, so it's only working on one layer, very similar to the camera raw filter inside of PS, so it really doesn't open a full psd file.

Thanks for the explanation, Chuck.

As we need flattened pictures in our workflow, it works for us, but it is good to know.

Actually, wouldn't it flatten TIFFs as well?

I would imagine that it would flatten riffs as well, but I haven't tried it in them.
