Hey,

I installed CS2 the other night and used the trial option because I
hadn't gotten my serial number email yet. I downloaded the new Camera
Raw to view the RAW from my 5d. Bridge worked fine, giving me previews
of the raw files. Then I got the serial and figured out I needed to
reinstall and give the serial number during the install. So, I
uninstalled and reinstalled and things went fine. Put the RAW plugin
back in the folder, although oddly enough, there was no original file
to replace. But things went fine.

Now, though, while CS2 can open the RAW file if I randomly click on one
in Bridge, I can't see preview thumbnails in Bridge. Just file icons.
Anyone have any ideas?

Thx. oj

That's because you have put it in the wrong folder. ACR is no longer a
Photoshop only plugin, so it should not be installed in the Photoshop
plugins folder. That why you didn't find one there. The 'Read Me' file
tells you where to install it.

Because you installed the new version in the wrong place, only Photoshop
can now use it. Bridge still uses the older version that was reinstalled
when you reinstalled Photoshop.

Hmm. Now that's interesting.

I've been wondering why my Canon 350XT RAW files (CR2) only show an
icon when displayed in Bridge. It hasn't seriously bothered me because
RAW files from camera also carry a .jpg file which displays in Bridge.

On my Fuji S7000 - the RAF (RAW files) display small image of picture
in Bridge. They do not tag along a .jpg file.

No serious problem for me in either case.

Best,

Conrad

Install ACR in the proper place and your 350XT RAW files will display in
Bridge in their full glory.

Thanks. I must have done it correctly the first time because I had the
readMe open. Now, I just have to find the readMe :).

If you have a Macintosh, you must install it in /Library/Application
Support/Adobe/Plug-Ins/CS2/File Formats/

If you use Windows, you're on your own.

It needs to go here:
program files\common files\adobe\plug-ins\cs2\file formats
