Hi! I need the minimum Camera Raw plug-in version of 12.2 to process RAF files on Photoshop Elements 2019. I've spent hours to find a workable answer but with little luck. Is it or isn't it possible to update the present Camera Raw (126.96.36.1993) to 12.2 or newer? I've tried using the DNG converter, but I'm not very confortable with it. A Camera Raw update would fix the problem more effectively.
However, although you say you want to open RAF raw images, you haven't told us which model of camera you have - it is the camera model that determines which version of Adobe Camera Raw you need. I'm guessing it's the XT-4 but just want to make sure 🙂
Many thanks for your prompt reply! And yes, you guessed right: it's the X-T4.
I did as instructed, managed to install a newer version of Camera Raw, also managed to lose Photoshop Elements 2019 from Program Files > Common Files > Adobe > Plug-Ins after uninstalling a trial version of Photoshop Elements 2021, but the main thing is that I can now open RAF files on Elements, although the Camera Matching Profiles don't quite look like the film simulation options of the X-T4.
Still, I'm almost happy with the results as they are and will use the current settings to process my photos. Many thanks again for your help!
