So updated from 18 back to 19.1.1 after hearing the pen tool crash was fixed.  Now the camera raw filter doesn't work.  Says incompatible with this version of Photoshop?  Is an update for that pending or have I missed something?

Seriously fed up of switching versions right now, one thing fixed, another problem introduced.  CC is turning into a disaster right now

Adobe just released a 10.2.1 camera raw for windows to fix this bug.

You can get the 10.2.1 camera raw installer from here:

I can open .CR2 files to ACR and open them in Photoshop. I am then able to use Camera RAW filter on the background layer, and also a copy of the background layer and any other layers I create.  In fact I am then able to create a new document, and use Camera RAW on all layers in that document.  But if I restart Photoshop, and create a new document and give it some content, it's back to this

I don't seem to be able to open RAW files from within an already open Photoshop, but I can 'Open With' from File Explorer, and Camera RAW then works OK until I restart Photoshop.  Then it's back to this

'

OK a small change now.  I can now open that previously opened .CR2 file from the Start workspace, and like before, new documents then behave OK.  But here again, if I open Photoshop and start a new document, I get the error message with Camera RAW.

I'm done for today, so hope to see some answers in the morning (for me).  Let's get some more bug hunters on the case 🙂

Basically if i open an camera raw file just after starting photoshop, then the camera raw filter works fine, but if i just open photoshop and open a normal file like a jpeg (non raw file without going through camera raw) then the camera raw filter produces that error and then even actual camera raw files no longer open using File>Open.

There is something strange here.

Before I downloaded anything - the CC desktop app said there were updates available to Photoshop and Camera Raw.

I checked the versions before downloading anything. Photoshop was at 19.1.0 and camera raw was at 10.2.0.894.

I updated Photoshop to 19.1.1 and the update camera raw notification had gone. However Camera Raw had not been updated. It is still at 10.2.0.894 and the Camera Raw .8bi file is still the file I installed in January.  It seems to work without issues. I wonder if the ACR update has been pulled?

start photoshop again.. will not work than (at least here).

like with my "load raw files first" it only works for ONE session. once you closed PS you have to go to the camera preferences AGAIN first, then you can use the filter during a session.

ok narrowed this down I think.  I restarted Photoshop after it was working, opened the same file and tried directly opening camera raw filter again with ctrl shift a on a layer - same happens with selecting via the filter menus - the error was back.  Also then going to preferences > camera raw filter would produce the error...

however restarted again, and before opening the file went to preferences > camera raw filter, dialog opens, closed it, opened the file again and works

davescm​ also tried here, and does not fix either, only opening & closing preferences for camera raw filter on start with no file open allows me to use it for that session

Hi Ged

I actually have two versions of the ACR .8bi file - both show the same date - but with two different file sizes:

The first here:

The second here :

I wonder if that has an impact on us not seeing the issue.

All is working fine at my end after several attempts to recreate the problem. As a side note, I'm opening NEF files.

I just updated Photoshop and Camera RAW and have the same issue. I hope this will be fixed as I use the filter to touch up my images extensively.

I'm on Win7 64bit and just upgraded to 19.1.1 from cc2018. Now Camera Raw doesn't work. Getting the same error as others "not compatible". I tried downgraded to 19.0 and then to cc2017 but none of the versions work with Camera Raw again.

This is a disaster!
