Just upgraded to Photoshop 2021 - everything looks OK except Camera Raw.  Attached are snapshots of what I see when I do the following:-

 

  1. Click on Camera Raw Preferences.
  2. Click on Filter > Camera Raw (when an image is loaded).
  3. I haven't included a picture of what happens when I click on About Plug-Ins > Camera Raw, because all I get is a plain black square!

 

I've never had this problem before with other versions of Photoshop, so I'm baffled.  Can anyone help please?

 

Tech Details:-

Camera Raw (v.11.4.1.291

Adobe Photoshop (22.0.0 release)

macOS Mojave (v.10.14.6)

iMaC (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015)

Processor 3.2 GHz Intel Core 15

Memory 32 Gb

I've actually solved this problem myself?  What I did was to uninstall some old versions of Photoshop that were lurking around, and I also disabled a scratch disk (which Photoshop had pointing to my external data disk for some reason - it also contains backups of old Photoshop versions).  It seemed to me that Photoshop might be trawling around for Adobe systems files, and getting itself all knotted up - so I tried to help out by getting rid of the old stuff.  (Anyway, it seems to have worked!)

 

Thanks very much for your help anyway - without being alerted to the different Camera Raw versions, I wouldn't have been able to get to this stage.

That's the wrong ACR version, 11.x is pretty old. It's up to version 13.0 now.

 

No idea why your system has stuck with this old version.

Thanks SO much for that - but when I checked my Creative Cloud updates, I had been updated to the 13.0.1 version!

 

So now I'm even more baffled - why, when I click on the Camera Raw filter within Photoshop, is it bringing up the wrong version?  (Which doesn't even work anyway?)

 

Here's perhaps a silly question - within Photoshop, I appear to be looking at a Camera Raw plug-in, yet the Creative Cloud update shows Camera Raw as a seemingly separate entity.  (It also appears to have its own folder under Adobe in Application Support - which is dated October 2020.)  Am I just getting paranoid, or are there two 'types' of Camera Raw?  (This confusion has never cropped up before - because everything just 'worked'?!)
