Re: Photoshop CS4 Doesn't Do RAW

Yes, and the Elements 11 with the ACR incorporated makes it very convenient. But this Canfield book I am reading says that Photoshop CS4 also includes ACR, but I just cannot find it. It is listed under Plug-ins, but it just isn't anywhere to be found. I try to import a RAW image into CS4 and it tells me cannot import file, wrong type. Anyone know how to gain this functionality in PS CS4?

Photoshop CS4 doesn't support Sony a77 RAW files, you'll need CS-5 or 6 (need 6 for a99). Adobe provides a work-around if you don't want to upgrade, or if you want to try the work-around before deciding to upgrade. They have a free dng converter you can download. Batch convert your AWR files to DNG and they will work in CS-4. I did that briefly before deciding to upgrade. When I got the a99 I had to upgrade to CS-6. One of the downfalls of using Adobe.
