Just updated Lightroom Classic to 14.4.1. Tried to send a raw file fr LRC to Photoshop 23.4.1 and got a popup window saying I should install Camera Raw 14.4.1. I opened up Creative Cloud and checked that I have the latest Camera Raw 14.4 installed and there's no 14.4.1 update. So is this a new bug?
typo...I meant Lightroom Classic 11.4.1
Yes I see the same incompatibility between PS camera raw and LrC camera raw on Mac OS. On Windows both apps are in sync. I checked in Creative Cloud Desktop for updates but no updates are available for ACR on Mac which remains at 14.4. It’s a bit annoying having to click render with Lightroom every time.
14.4. is the latest version of ACR for Mac, there was a .1 that is only a fix for one bug under Windows. So it seems LR is confused by this fact and at the time, I don't know there is anything you can do until LR is updated (or ACR for Mac). All the downloads manually for ACR are here: https://helpx.adobe.com/camera-raw/kb/camera-raw-plug-in-installer.html#12_x
OK thanks for the suggestion. I think rolling back may cause more problems as I’ve already imported and edited photos in LrC 11.4.1
Won’t that produce an error in v11.4 suggesting the photos have been edited in a higher version of camera raw?
Hopefully Adobe will fix this soon as they have turned a Windows issue into a Mac issue.
Rolling back on (dot release) version will have no effect on your imported images.
Or you can simply wait for an ACR/LR update that addresses the disconnect that causes this dialog to pop. Afterall, it's not a big deal; you can have LR render the image and then use Photoshop. Just use the middle option (Render using Lightroom). You choice.
Well you may think it’s not a big deal unless like me you are editing a large batch and applying filters from the Nik Collection. I could really do without this extra hoop to jump through. I’ve decided to switch off automatic updates. In future I will wait until each release is fit for purpose.
No sir, no intention of doing anything with Nik. But I think I did provide you with options and what you select to do until both LR/ACR are on parity is fine with me. Nik or otherwise, rolling back one (dot release) version will have no effect on your imported images.
When I updated to PS 23.4.1 I was surprised not to see an ACR update. They usually come together. I appreciate this was originally to fix a Windows issue but what was Adobe thinking when LrC 11.4.1 was released? Surely this incompatibility should have been apparent. How long do customers have to suffer this inconvenience when editing externally in PS from LrC?
You can roll back to the last version of LR, or wait for an update to ACR and let LR render for ACR.
If you wish to roll back to an older version, use the Creative Cloud application, click on the three dots (...) and select “Other Versions”.

Camera Raw (as noted in LRC) 14.4.1
This morning after the latest update, I started getting this message when sending a photo from LRC to Photoshop (see attached screen shot).
According to Creative Cloud, all apps are up to date, including camera raw.
I did see where this is a problem for others on the camera raw site. For some reason it seems LRC got a new update but PS didn't.
When trying to open a raw file in Photoshop from Lightroom Classic I get this message, one I've never gotten before, "This version of Lightroom may require the Photoshop Camera Raw plug-in version 14.4.1 for full compatibility". I have a CC account and every app is up to date, Do I need to install a Camera Raw Plug-in in PS? This just started happening after installing the latest LR Classic update yesterday June 30.
got this message in lightroom cc, but cannot found camera raw 14.4.1 to download
Just choose"Render using Lightroom" until this is fixed.
Thanks, if I check that box "Render Using Lightroom" and check the "don't show again" will that set my preference and when they fix the bug I won't be able to switch back? Thanks
Everything will be fine again once LR and ACR return to version parity. I would not use the “ Dont show again” option, it's useful and I don't think it should even be an option. You can reset all such warnings yet IMHO some shouldn't be allowed to be set off. This is one.
Don't use "Render in Lightroom", use "Open Anyway". Render in Lightroom is only needed if you have a serious mismatch, where ACR would not understand something that Lightroom sends to it. That is not the case here, so you can simply ignore the warning and use ACR normally. That is what "Open Anyway" does.
Under Prefernces/General you can choose to "RESET ALL WARNING DIALOGS" and it should turn it back on although that resets all warnings.
Lightroom is asking for version 14.4.1 of Camera Raw, but Creative Cloud updater only finds version 14.4. How can I get the updater, since, according to a message in this post, it seems that it is already available?
Thanks for any help,
Please post your System Information as Lightroom Classic (LrC) reports it. In LrC click on Help, then System Info, then Copy. Paste that information into a reply. Please present all information from first line down to and including Plug-in Info. Info after Plug-in info can be cut as that is just so much dead space to us non-Techs.

First off, eliminate a glaring issue your GPU driver. Updating GPU drivers if often mentioned in Adobe troubleshooting pages.

When you update thaat driver, select custom install type as to force a clean install.
Second, and you may have already accomplished this, for NVIDIA, use the NVIDIA controll app to manage 3D settings (even though you are not gaming, etc) and tweek the GPU to high performance.
and (despite for a different NVIDIA product):
Third, and I have never had dual display on my Windows rig, so no experience with the following, but see:
Just a data point, I have used Lightroom on several Macs with multiple displays and haven't seen any issues with updating the Secondary window.
I have the same issue, but with any ajustments randomly in lightroom. The image on the second window doesnt or takes long to update

With the August releases of Camera Raw and the Lightroom Desktop/Classic, this should no longer be an issue. Update these applications as soon as they are available in your Creative Cloud App.
is actually an LrC bug. Classic should be recognizing (Mac) CR 14.4 as compatible with (Mac) LrC 11.4.1. It isn't so we've logged a bug against LrC for future instances where there is an X.y.z vs X.y mismatch. Workarounds: For now, the error message appearing is a mistake. Until the LrC bug is fixed or until the next release when the ACR and LrC versions will be in sync again, you have a few options:
