Elements 2020 Does Not Support Most Recent ACR Version (12.2)

I cannot process RAW files from the new Olympus OMD EM1 Mark III in Elements. The issue is the version of ACR supported in Elements. ACR 12.2 released in April does include support for the Mark III, but Elements only runs up to ACR version 12.0.

 

Other than converting Olympus raw files into DNG or TIff, is there a way to force Elements 20 to recognize the most recent version of ACR? Or does someone have an idea when Elements will be updated to include ACR 12.2?

 

Thank you

Hi, 

 

The Camera Raw updates for the Creative Cloud version of Photoshop and Photoshop Elements are released separately. The April release is compatible only with the Creative Cloud version of Photoshop.

 

For now, we do not have a way to make Photoshop Elements recognize the latest Camera Raw version. We do not have an official timeline on when the update for Photoshop Elements 2020 to support Camera Raw 12.2 would be rolled out.

 

Regards,

Nikunj

That s rather upsetting

I just cashed out 150 euros for Elements suite and I have an EM 1 MkIII which needs ACR 12.2.

Apart of having wasted money I think that it is now time to move to a different program, definitely NOT and ADOBE one anymore...

Couldn't agree more.  I've moved on from Adobe, and I was not only an Elements user, but also full Photoshop.

Sorry that you had to take one for the team. I am sure this was a marketing ploy to make people sign up for CC. 

This issue you brought up has me convined to go with Affinity Photo. More powerful than elements and less money with no charge for upgrades.

Consider converting to DNG

DNG Converter is free. You can batch convert a whole folder of Raw images into Adobe raw (DNG) without any loss of quality and the dng files will be backward compatible with your software
