Re: Lightroom and ACR Versions + Compatibilities

Lightroom 1.x is the equivalent of ACR 4.x which is the version used in PS CS3

Process version 2003.

Lightroom 2.x is the equivalent of ACR 5.x which is the version used in PS CS4

Process version 2003.

Lightroom 3.x is the equivalent of ACR 6.x which is the version used in PS CS5

Process version 2003 and 2010

Lightroom 4.x is the equivalent of ACR 7.x which is the version used in PS CS6

Process version 2003, 2010 and 2012

If you need ACR 4.x in PS CS3 to read .xmp files from Lightroom 4.x you will have to use Process version 2003 which is clearly outdated. The thing to do is to do all the processing to your raw files in Lightroom and send them via "edit in" and selecting render using Lightroom, that way Lightroom will send a tiff file to PS CS3 which it can deal with. This way you can use either Process version 2010 and 2012 which have more advanced functions.
