Can't open RAW file when moved from Lightroom to Photoshop CS4

I have a Canon 6D and recently purchased Lightroom 4.4 so that I could open my Canon RAW files. They do open in Lightroom, but when I move them to PHotoshop CS4 I can't open the files. I get a message telling me I can't open them. Any suggestions?

I don't know Macs so can't give you advice if CS6 will run on your Mac.
But since you have Lr5 you won't need to open Raw images in Photoshop. Lr5 gives you all the Raw editing capabilities that you need. I don't think CS6 will add anything to Raw editing capabilities that Lr5 doesn't have - although I don't know CS6 since I am still working with CS5.
You still can send images from Lr5 to CS4 for editing but you have to select <Render using Lightroom> in the dialog that says that the "Camera raw plug-in 8.1 may be required   ...". BTW: what this means is that the Camera raw plug-in 8.1 is required for Photoshop, not for Lr.
When you select <Render using Lightroom> Lr will create a TIFF / PSD from the Raw image and send it to CS4 for editing.
If you had CS6 Lr would send the Raw image to CS6 but on saving the edits in CS6 a TIFF / PSD would be created.
The only drawback with using CS4 is that the options <Merge to Panorama ...>, <Merge to HDR ...>, and <Open as layers> will be greyed-out and are not available.
If instead of selecting  <Render using Lightroom> in the dialog box you would select <Open anyway>, nothing would happen. CS4 would open but the image would not be displayed in CS4.

  • Can't open raw files in bridge from canon 70d

    I am a windows user, and I've updated my camera raw to the most current available...6.7. But when trying to open raw files in Bridge it says that my camera model is not supported by the current software. What else should I do?

    Which version of Camera Raw do you use (Photoshop > About Plug-In > Camera Raw) and which one is needed for that camera?

  • How can I open raw files from my Nikon D7100 in CS4 or CS5?

    How can I open raw files from my Nikon D7100 in CS4 or CS5?

    Andy,
    In the simple and short form, what happens with the ACR (Adobe Camera RAW) module is that it gets updated with regularity, to accommodate the camera mfgr's. changes for their newer models. That ACR works within the host program, such as Ps, PsElements, Lightroom, etc.. At a point, Adobe ceases to support older host program versions. When that happens, the user has a few options:
    Upgrade the host program version
    Use another host program, such as PsElements or Lightroom
    Use the free DNG converter, per Curt's suggestion. That is not host program dependent
    Glad that the DNG Converter works for you.
    Good luck,
    Hunt

  • Can't open Numbers file after moving it back to Mac from Dropbox

    Please help!  Can't open Numbers file after moving it back to iMac from Dropbox.   Says I need the newer version of Numbers each time I tried to open the file.  I am 100% sure that I had the newest version.   Spoke to the AppleCare guy and after doing the checks he is also sure that I had the latest version of Numbers and AppleCare can't help.  He suggested that maybe i should run it on a file repair program...any suggestion?... please help...

    I've read reports of people having trouble when storing Numbers 3 documents on Dropbox.  I think it's related to the fact that they're not really "files."  They're "packages" that look like files. I had thought that Dropbox had cleared this up with their latest update. You should be on Dropbox version 2.4 or later.
    If you have Time Machine you may have some luck going back in time and restoring the document from a previous version.
    Storing Numbers documents on iCloud works much better, at least for me, and (unlike Dropbox) iCloud facilitates automatic syncing to other Macs and iOS devices signed into the same Apple ID.
    Perhaps you could consider keeping Numbers documents in iCloud instead. iCloud is deeply integrated into the app, and now works well.

  • Can not open RAW-Files from Nikon D4 in Photoshop cc

    hi. i can not open RAW-Files from Nikon D4 in Photoshop cc. (Camera RAW 6.7) can you help please?

    ACR 6.7 would be for an older product, PS-CS5 or PSE10 or PRE10.
    What does Help / About Plug-ins… / Camera Raw… show in PS-CC for a version for ACR and is there more than one version of ACR in the Help / About Plug-in list.  Help / About Plug-in is what I’d do on Windows; I’m not sure if the menu path is the same on a Mac or not.

    You can't directly but can use DNG Converter to convert your files so ACR can read and process them.

  • Can't open RAW files from a Canon 70D

    Can't open RAW files from a Canon 70D with Photoshop Elements 12.  Is there an upgrade / download available.  Current RAW plug in is version 8.0.0.137

    What operating system are you using?
    The newest version of camera raw for pse 12 is version 8.4, which should open the canon 70D files.
    Have you tried Help>Updates from within the pse 12 editor?

    Three choices:
    1. Upgrade to PSE11
    2. download the free Adobe DNG Converter and then convert your RAWs to DNG, which will open in PSE9
    3. Use manufacturer's software and convert to TIF (or JPG)

  • Can't open raw files from a supported camera

    Hi.  I just uninstalled pse 12, installed pse 13 and ran all updates.  I still can't open raw files from my Nikon D5200, which is a supported model.  It works on a Vista system I have with pse 12, so it definitely isn't the camera.  Any ideas?

    The D5200 has been supported since midway through PSE11’s life, so PSE12 and PSE13 should work ok.
    I’d suspect that the NEFs have been touched by Nikon software which can rendering them unrecognizable to Adobe products.  You can test for this by using Explorer to copy a newly shot raw file from your memory card to the computer and then see if that will open, making sure no Nikon software has viewed it or been involved in the copy process.
    If the files are corrupted, then a utility from here can reverse it:

    How do I fix this problem? Can't open raw files from my D800E in CS5.

    You could try Help > Update, but that was a flakey process in CS5 times.
    It's better to download and instally manually.

  • I can't open RAW files from new Sony Alpha a6000 camera in PSE 11 camera raw editor. Is there an update that will allow me to do this or do I need to always use DNG convertor?

    I can't open RAW files from new Sony Alpha a6000 camera in PSE 11 camera raw editor. Is there an update that will allow me to do this or do I need to always use DNG convertor?

    You would need to update to PSE 12, or just keep using the DNG converter. Your camera requires ACR 8.4, which isn't compatible with PSE 11. It's also not compatible with PSE 12 if you are running Vista or XP.

  • I'm using a 30 days trial of PS  CC...but I Can't open raw files from my NIKON D 7100

    I can't open raw files in PS CC.
    I'm using NIKON D7100.

    Noel,
    Good morning, and may I just add  THANK YOU!
    While certainly not as efficient or handy, that is the answer.  I simply
    instructed my PC to open the containing folder, in this case my direct card
    reader, and manually copied the files to my hard drive (highlight first and
    last-SHIFT-Enter) and moved them to a pre-named subdirectory.
    I opened PScc and pointed to that file, clicked on the photo I wanted and
    VIOLA!  Opened in Camera Raw and I was off to the races!
    Perhaps the user groups can make some noise and someone at Nikon may take
    notice!
    Thanks again for the suggestion.
    Larry

  • Can't open raw files in 32 bit CS4

    Am using Vista 64 bit OS and because I recently purchased Nik Software's Complete Ed was necessary to change from initial set up of PS CS4 64 bit to 32 for their usage compatability. Had Camera Raw 5.0 on 64 bit version, copied camera raw 8bi plug in file format and placed in correct file format folder for the 32 bit version of PS. ...sounds easy enough...but when I attempt to open a raw file in PS or bridge it will not open and get message - Could not complete your request because of a program error.  Camera raw does show up and only once under the About Plug In submenu. Have tried Purge Cache option. Can still open raw files as always in 64 bit version, save and reopen 32bit version to continue but hoping for solution to eleminate that hassle. Thanks for your needed advice!  

    Plugin's have to be rewritten for a 64-bit environment so copying the 64-bit ACR to the 32-bit folder won't work.  You need the 32-bit version of ACR in the 32-bit CS4 folder.
    I'm not sure if the ACR 5.6 updater will work to update both versions, or if you need to download and install the plugin's manually. 
    You can get to the manual install ZIP by following the PSE link near the top of the regular ACR 5.6 page linked on the updates page:
