  1. Thanks for the update!
    One question, though. Why do I have to click “Proceed to Download” and then “Download Now?” There should be only one link to click. It should be labeled “Download.” I’d blame this on the Lightroom GUI team, only the pages aren’t dark gray, medium gray, gray stripes, dark gray lines plus gray fleurons on dark gray and darker gray and black, with the scroll arrows missing, so that rules them out.

  2. I solved why I can’t switch language.
    The new languages is not included in the “normal” download. The one you get when you agree to update (or follow the links above).
    To get Swedish you need to download a fresh copy via Adobe Sweden.

  3. Thanks John for the information. Won’t the Adobe Updater install this update for us automatically? I tried using it in Bridge CS4 and it told me no updates were available. Also, how do I find out what version of ACR I’m running? Thanks again. 🙂

  4. Please help me I have a Canon Rebel XL, I can’t open files with CS-3 Camera Raw.
    [You need the latest version of the free DNG Converter. –J.]

  5. Hello John,
    I’ve a question about printing in Lightroom. I heard that, using the exact same settings, Lightroom still prints colors differently than Photoshop CS4 does. Most of the time the prints out of lightroom are a little bit too red.
    There’s also a rumour going round that Lightroom does not follow the guidelines of the ICC. Do you have any comments on this or do you know a site where I can find more this subject?
    ps. I really like your blog, thanks!
