Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) v9.6 - Direct download links

ACR for PS CC Windows (192.76 MB)
ACR for PS CC Mac OS (154.13 MB)



What's new in ACR v9.6:
The goal of this release is to provide additional camera raw support, lens profile support and address bugs that were introduced in previous releases of Camera Raw.  This release also includes a new Guided Upright feature.

Camera Raw 9.6 is only available in Photoshop CC or later.  Customers using older versions of Photoshop can utilize the DNG Converter for continued camera support.

Please note that this version of Camera Raw on Mac requires the use of OSX 10.9 and greater.

Introducing Guided Upright 

Starting with Camera Raw 9.6, Guided Upright allows you to provide ‘hints’ that enable Upright to work its magic.  You draw the vertical and horizontal lines directly on the image and Upright will automatically transform the image.

Here’s how to get started:
Select an image and open it in Camera Raw.
Enable Lens Profile Corrections.  Upright works better with Lens Profile Corrections.
Notice that there is a new “Transform” Panel.  Transform includes both Upright and the manual perspective correction sliders together in a convenient place.
Within Transform, click on the "Guided" button.
Draw 2-4 guides on the image.  Upright will transform the image once you’ve drawn at least 2 guides.
Fine tune the results (if needed) with the manual transform slides, including the new X and Y transform sliders.  They can be used for  repositioning/moving the image within the canvas after applying strong perspective corrections to choose which part of the (warped, non-rectangular) image to show within the rectangular canvas.
