    Updated today and now can not access Auto Import setting?????????????

  2. Réis says:

    Pressing X in Grid or Loupe Mode does not work any more on all macs I tested (sierra, french install)
    Wonderful. Like every time untested. Unbelievable.

  3. titus says:

    When comes SIGMA sd Quattro DNG support?

    • Brian says:

      Considering the camera doesn’t even write DNGs yet, I wouldn’t hold your breath?

      The Quattro H will allegedly launch with DNG support – and if they follow the standards correctly I would imagine it will ‘just work’ in most DNG tools, but I guess we will see

  4. Jimcamel says:

    My catalog reports as 2.8GB on Mac El Capitan – but I get an error message that it’s greater than 4GB from LR when I try to back it up. I did continue and it proceeded to complete the backup – resulting in a file of about 358MB – very similar in size to the 2015.7 version compressed backups.

    So is the ‘IF’ statement wrong or are you reporting anything roughly larger than 2+ GB as requiring a separate unzip. I did run the MAC OS X un-zip on it and it did it – restoring the .lrcat to 2.8 GB – but I did NOT test the catalog thinking ‘let sleeping dogs lie’.

    Where to download? thanks!

  6. Mirela says:

    How can I make it works?

  7. Mark says:

    I have Photoshop Elements 14 and I’ve bought the new Canon M5 mirrorless camera. The ACR version in PSE is 9.5.0. I can’t open my new M5 RAW files in PSE 14; apparently new ACR version 9.8 provides support for the new M5. I haven’t found any instructions for how to update ACR 9.5.0 in PSE 14 to ACR 9.8. The instructions I’m finding only cover updating to 9.8 in CS and CC. When I go thru the normal update procedure for PSE (Help>Updates), it says my applications are all up to date. How can I get my PSE 14 updated to ACR 9.8 so I can edit my new Canon M5 RAW files?

  8. qdc says:

    Cant seem to open any DNG’s, seems buggy, all i get on the camera raw console is a blue screen with a plain yellow image. Is this happening with anyone else? images where taken with a pentax k 5 II..

  9. richard tilley says:

    crash crash crash no import crash, typical update from Adobe once more. #insanely frustrating – all camera raw updates fail too.

  10. Steve Lockwood says:

    I have PSE 15
    How do I get ACR 9.8 to work with it?

  11. iban says:

    Imposible to download. Crashes in the middle of the download

  12. E McDermott says:

    9.8 does not work with Elements 15 for my Nikon D5600 (DNG convertor O.K. When will a version for D5600/ Elements be available?

  13. JD McRae says:

    I have a new canon t6, you name it, I’ve done it, help-update, adobe camera raw download, downloaded the adobe DN converter, and I go into the folder to get the .cr2 file and it’s empty, changed all the preferences and still empty. But I look in my file fold and see the files. I ‘am lost, help please, Photoshop’s, E 13 & 14, Thanks!

  14. Nish says:

    It is crashing in the middle of the download.

  15. Thierry says:

    are the server issues solved? can it be downloaded now?

  16. E says:

    For me later update 9.5 works, but with 9.8 i can download the zip file but when i try to unzip it says file is empty or something. No matter where i try to download. What’s the problem..

  17. Tomas says:

    I can’t seem to get the tools to work. I only get the hand icon…

  18. Justin says:

    also unable to download from adobe servers. connection is immediately severed. I’m oddly enough running ACR 9.8 within Photoshop CC 2017, yet i cannot download it or update it for Lightroom. Cant edit or catalog any of my recent photos from my RX100V… please fix download link.

  19. nick dee says:

  21. Kevin says:

    Hi there… I’ve been trying to download the latest version 9.8 but cannot get more than 20% downloaded. I can download 9_5_1 and 9_7 but can’t download 9.1.1 and 9.8? I’m at a loss as I now cannot open any of my files of my Nikon D750 and I’m running Photoshop CS6 ver 13.0 x64
    Neither 9_5_7 & 9.1.1 work as I’m always prompted to update ACR

  22. Tony says:

    CameraRaw_9_8.zip for windows download is still corrupt.

    • Rikk Flohr says:

      Try it today, Tony. It should be working again.

      • JM says:

        downloaded today unzipping trows and error, but show the pkg file (CameraRaw_9_8.pkg) when trying to open I get:

        The operation couldn’t be completed. (com.apple.installer.pagecontroller error -1.)
        Couldn’t open “CameraRaw_9_8.pkg”.

  23. I don’t manage to download it properly. The bowser says it’s an empty file ?
    Is there an other way ?

  24. Dee says:

    Still cant open sony rx100 m5 raw files in photoshop.. 🙁

    • Rikk Flohr says:

      Verify you have installed Adobe Camera Raw 9.8 (Which is required for the RX100 M5)

      You can confirm your installed ACR version number here: Photoshop>About Plug-ins>Camera Raw…

      • Matt says:

        Just taking first shots off my new a99ii….Cannot open them in Raw or PS…updated RAW etc. with new 9.8 link, says installed. But, when I go to info for plug-ins, the RAW page still says 9.1. Have tried to install again and look for updates, but says fully updated. Anyone have any idea what is going on or what steps to take to get RAW and PS actually up to correct update? Seems stuck on 9.1…..

  25. shelly says:

    if i download camera raw 9.8 does it work with cs6 windows?

  26. Ross Mills says:

    My Photoshop cc2017 “About” shows Camera Raw 9.8 but the toolbar is missing several features that are available in the Camera Raw contained in Bridge 2017. How can I get the more complete toolbar to be available in the Photoshop Camera Raw application?

  27. Artur Roszak says:

    Can you add profiles for Sigma lenses with MC-11 adapter on Sony E-Mount cameras.

  28. Peter Braid says:

    will adobe ever release a state of the art raw processor?
    i guess many people are waiting for LR7.

    other raw converter are much better in noise reduction and demosaicing.
    the LR engine is now what… 5 years old?
    it´s noticeable. adobe dropped the ball.

    multiprocessing in LR sucks. my cores are barely 80% occupied.
    LR wastes performance on multicore systems.

    when i look at neural networks and what is possible with image recognition today i can only laugh about adobes facial recognition. even 30 euro shareware programs do it better.

    location tagging? freeware offers better options than the LR map module.
    and it´s not improved since it´s introduction. 🙁

    really LR6 is going long in the tooth.

    all adobe does is making more mobile stuff and feature for selfie shooter.
    no wonder professionals switch to other solutions.

  29. Mickey says:

    I’m trying unsuccessfully to download ACR9.8 into CS6 for my new M5 camera. PS>Help>Updates gives “Update server not responding”. I have internet connection. Is firewall a problem?

    • Rikk Flohr says:

      ACR 9.1.1 is the last version compatible with Photoshop CS6. You need the Creative Cloud version of Photoshop in order to use Adobe Camera Raw 9.8

  30. marty says:

    I have photoshop cs5 and had to reinstall it due to replacing my hard drive now I am having issues and was told so sorry to bad must buy a plan for 9.99 . that they would not even look into the code problem that I had the program for 6 years and they will not support it now

  31. Leopoldo says:

    Cannot even go step one of the download process and Creative Cloud says my Camera Raw is up to date (which is not).

  32. Biswa says:

    After viewing the http://www.mobilephonescompare.com/ZenFone-Zoom-camera-and-Sony-A6500-which-will-you-choose planing to purchase the Asus ZenFone 3 Zoom .

    Will this support Camera Raw plug-in ?

  33. Mark Wheeler says:

    I’m running Lightroom 5.7. Help shows Camera Raw is at 8.7. I need 9.8 to support Nikon D5600 images, so tried to search for updates. LR says no updates available. I downloaded the 9.8 version of the DNG converted but it didn’t integrate with LR. Suggestions?

    • Rikk Flohr says:

      Lightroom 5.7.1 is the last version of Lightroom 5. It cannot upgrade beyond Camera Raw 8.7.1.

      To read these files you need to:

      1. Upgrade Lightroom to 6.x
      or
      2. Subscribe to the Creative Cloud Photographer’s program
      or
      3. Use the free DNG converter from Adobe to convert your NEF Files to DNG so that your older versions of your Adobe software can read the files.

    Just taking first shots off my new a99ii….Cannot open them in Raw or PS…updated RAW etc. with new 9.8 link, says installed. But, when I go to info for plug-ins, the RAW page still says 9.1. Have tried to install again and look for updates, but says fully updated. Anyone have any idea what is going on or what steps to take to get RAW and PS actually up to correct update? Seems like RAW is stuck and 9.1 and I don’t have any idea how to update it after the steps I have taken… Thanks!

  35. N/A says:

    new NVidia GPU drivers forced to install by Windows 10 are causing troubles with ACR9.8 = see the topic @ http://forum.luminous-landscape.com/index.php?topic=116793

    when we can expect the fix ?

    • Rikk Flohr says:

      The auto-updated driver via Windows 10 can be several versions older than the nVidia driver obtained by direct download from nVidia’s site or via the nVidia app. Make certain you are using the latest version as told by nVidia-not Microsoft.

  36. Reagenald says:

    can i get link CR 8.8 For Adobe photoshop CS 6 thank you

  37. K Arneson says:

    Please help. Cannot get raw images from sonya99 ii top open up in lightroom 5.7.1. I’ve downloaded and installed the DNG converter 9._10.dmg, the Camera Raw_9_10.pkg and the Camera Raw_9_11.pkg. Still not working. I have a time crunch matter and need these images as soon as possible for a client. Thank you in advance for your assistance 🙂 I am a member of the creative cloud photography program. If that helps. Any instructions you can send would be much appreciated.

    • Rikk Flohr says:

      Lightroom does not use the Camera Raw plugin.

      If you are a Creative Cloud member, use the Creative Cloud App to install CC2015.10 (Current Version) The Sony A99II was supported as of CC2015.8

  38. ron lynch says:

    My mac is running 10.9.3 and I have PS CC 2015.5.2
    Is the only way to upgrade ACR from current 9.6.1.631 to 9.8 is to upgrade the Mac OS to 10.10?

  39. Kazimierz Mazurak says:

    Hello Adobe,
    I am a 69 year old male living in Western Australia.(recently retied) Have dabbled with PS Elements 11 & Now upgraded & purchased from ebay UK copy on CS6 version 13.0.1 extended. I also have a Nikon D5600 camera and want to open NEF files in Bridge & CS6 which I can’t do. Have down loaded the Camera Raw plug in 9.12.1 & Installer 9.1.1. still cant open my NEF files. I am not a Techno Nerd so stay off the internet (Scammers) I don’t want to do the Cloud thing as I can’t afford the internet costs in Australia and our internet is slow compared to
    other countries. I have read mast of the stuff regarding Camera Raw and I don’t want to be forced to keep converting my good files to DNG, Just want to open & process in Bridge Open & process in Camera Raw & do any final processing in CS6, is that too much to ask for ? I’m old and don’t have time left. Please help?

    • Rikk Flohr says:

      Camera Raw 9.1.1 is the last version compatible with CS6.

      To use your new camera with your old software, you would need to use Adobe’s free DNG converter to convert your later model Nikon NEF files to DNG which CS6 can read no problem. Unfortunately there is no other option for CS6.

      • Hi Rikk, Thanks for reply. Why is there a Camera Raw 9.8 which is supposed to be able to open Nikon D5600 camera files. I could use Nikon Capture N-XD to process NEF files, but if I want to do some other work I need CS6 and I wont to lean Bridge. What version of CS6 and camera raw will open NEF files? (Frustrated Old Guy) will the latest software CS6 open NEF files if so what do I need to do?. Can I get an upgrade ed CS6 or something that doesn’t cost much?
        Regards, KM
