Samuel Dilworth: Is it compatible with Photoshop Elements 9? Adobe's haphazard documentation is confusing on that point.
The readme file (http://www.adobe.com/special/photoshop/camera_raw/Camera_Raw_6.6_ReadMe.pdf) says "This new version of the Camera Raw plug-in replaces the original Camera Raw plug-in that was installed with Photoshop CS5, Photoshop Elements 9 and Premiere Elements 9."
It also says, "The Camera Raw 6.6 plug-in is not compatible with versions of Photoshop earlier than Photoshop CS5 or versions of Photoshop Elements earlier than Photoshop Elements 8 for Windows and Photoshop Elements 8 for Mac."
However, this webpage (http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/detail.jsp?ftpID=5315) says: "This Camera Raw 6.6 update is not compatible with versions of Photoshop Elements earlier than Photoshop Elements 10." That conflicts with both the statements above.
It would be disappointing if Elements 9 users are already locked out of Camera Raw updates. Can anyone clarify the situation?
This is outrageous! I have also checked the ACR 6.6 readme and it clearly states compatibility with Elements 9. I have an X10 and it would seem no choice (if I want to stick with Adobe) but to upgrade. Adobe should publish a clear upgrade/support policy and, IMHO, provide support for at least the current and previous versions of their products.
