Camera Raw does not read previously saved XMP files (Canon 60D)

Hi,

 

I want to ask if it is a real problem or just me doing something wrong.

I open RAW files made with Canon 60D (Photoshop CS5, Camera Raw 6.6), then I do what a do (cropping, exposure changes, sharpen ... etc.), then I click the Done button. Camera Raw saves XMP files along with the RAW files. After this I want to do some more editing, I open the RAW files, but Camera RAW does not "remember" what it did just minutes before. I suppose that it is not reading the XMP files that it created.

So is it me or it is some kind of bug?

I don't have this problem when editing RAW files made with Canon 400D.

 

Thanks for your time!

    There is a Forum for Camera Raw.

    THere is a difference between not remembering your edits, and not seeing the edits you just did.

     

    If you use embedded thumbnails you will not see edits, but you will see a shield in upper rh corner indicating edits. 

     

    You will see the edited version in the preview.

     

    If you want to see edits in thumb you need to use one of the HQ options.

     

    Hope this helps.

    If I understand correctly the issue is not viewing in Bridge, but rather that ACR doesn't remember the changes.

     

    There is a discussion in the Camera Raw forum about this issue of not always reading the changes after clicking Done in ACR.

    But no solution.

    It's so easy to imagine hitting [Cancel] instead of [Done]...  Are you sure you didn't?

    Are you storing the pictures on an external drive?  If so you may have permission problems.

     

    If you are using Bridge to do edits right click on Bridge start icon and choose "run as administrator".

    Please post in the other thread, visited by ACR engineers, with the version info of ACR, Photoshop, your operating system, your camera, its firmware version, and maybe post the XMP of the offending file.

    Please state also if any other software is running, like TimeMachine on a Mac, or an Anti-Virus on a pc, that might "scan" that XMP file, etc.

     

    What would be useful, if you do run into the issue again, would be to capture the XMP, and send it to an ACR engineer, to see if it has been correctly updated, if it is not corrupted in any form...

    I would also check the time the XMP has been edited, to see if it match with the moment it was supposed to be saved by ACR.
