    Setting up CS2 & Elements to read Fuji .RAF files.


    The update from Adobe for Camera Raw 4.3.1 plug-in is not compatible with versions of Photoshop earlier than Photoshop CS3 or versions of Photoshop Elements earlier than Photoshop Elements 4.0 for Macintosh or Photoshop Elements 5.0 for Windows, or Premiere Elements 3.0 for Windows.
    The latest versions of the Camera Raw plug-in available for previous Adobe software titles are listed below:
    *Installing the update 3.7 from Adobe works for the following; please follow the setup sheet below to fix the problems opening Fuji .RAF file extensions and .RAW file extensions. Following the setup you should be able to preview both in Adobe Photoshop CS2 and Bridge; you will also be able to open and work on the files.
    Mac
    • Photoshop CS2: Camera Raw 3.7
    • Photoshop Elements 3.0: Camera Raw 3.6

    Windows
    • Photoshop CS2: Camera Raw 3.7
    • Photoshop Elements 4.0: Camera Raw 3.7
    • Photoshop Elements 3.0: Camera Raw 3.6

    To install with Photoshop CS2:

    1. Exit Photoshop CS2.
    2. Open My Computer.
    3. Double-click Local Disk (C:).
    4. Navigate to: (Please read directory carefully)

    Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Plug-Ins\CS2\File Formats

    5. Move the existing Camera Raw.8bi plug-in to another location (for example, a new folder on your desktop). Ensure you keep this version in case you need to revert back.

    6. Copy the Camera Raw plug-in, Camera Raw.8bi, from the download into the same folder as Step 4.

    7. Launch Photoshop CS2 or Adobe Bridge.

    Note: If generic camera thumbnails appear in Adobe Bridge, follow these steps:

    1. Check to make sure the plug-in was installed in the correct directory in step 4 above.
    2. Start Bridge.
    3. Choose Tools > Cache > Purge Central Cache.

    Important: Purging the Central Cache deletes cached thumbnail information for all folders. It also deletes labels, ratings, and rotation settings for read-only files (for example, files on a CD or locked files) or file formats that don't have XMP support.

    To install with Adobe Photoshop Elements 6.0:

    1. Exit Photoshop Elements.

    Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 6.0\Plug-Ins\File Formats

    5. Move the existing Camera Raw.8bi plug-in to another location (for example, a new folder on your desktop). Ensure you keep this version in case you need to revert back.

    6. Copy the Camera Raw plug-in, Camera Raw.8bi, from the download into the same folder as Step 4.

    7. Launch Photoshop Elements.

    To install with Adobe Premiere Elements 4.0:

    1. Exit Adobe Premiere Elements.
    2. Open My Computer.
    3. Double-click Local Disk (C:)
    4. Navigate to: (Please read directory carefully)

    Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Elements 4.0\Plug-Ins\Common\PSA

    5. Move the existing Camera Raw.8bi plug-in to another location (for example, a new folder on your desktop). Ensure you keep this version in case you need to revert back.

    6. Copy the Camera Raw plug-in, Camera Raw.8bi, from the download into the same folder as Step 4.

    7. Launch Adobe Premiere Elements.
