PE 14/14.1: Camera Raw 9.4


The "Photoshop Camera Raw 9.4" has been released for Photoshop Elements 14/14.1 and Premiere Elements 14/14.1. For Elements, it is downloaded and installed for use from the opened project's Help Menu/Updates.

The Adobe Camera Raw plug-in enables editing raw image format in a Photoshop Elements Camera Raw dialog but only allows for importing raw (and .dng) images as source media into Premiere Elements. The requirements for the processes involve
  • Camera Raw version must support the camera that created the raw image format
  • Photoshop Elements/Premiere Elements version must support the version of Camera Raw installed

The new cameras supported by Camera Raw 9.4 are reported (see here) to be
  • Fujifilm X70
  • Fujifilm X-E2S
  • Fujifilm X-Pro2
  • Leica M (Typ 262)
  • Leica X-U (Typ 113)
  • Panasonic DMC-ZS60 (DMC-TZ80, DMC-TZ81, DMC-TZ85)
  • Phase One IQ150
  • Sony ILCA-68 (A68)

In cases when there is no Camera Raw support for a given camera and Premiere Elements application, consider the Adobe DNG Converter 9.4 which is described by Adobe
The Adobe DNG Converter is a free utility that enables you to easily convert camera-specific raw files from more than 600 cameras to the more universal DNG raw format.


Work in progress.
