    While checking out the new features in LR4 I right-clicked and selected edit in CS5.1 I get a pop-up message that says I really need ACR 7.0 :D ACR 7.0 hasn't been released yet and will be out with Adobe CS6 .... and unlikely Adobe is going to support CS5 once they release CS6 but I see it's still currently offered at full price.

    Anyone else get this message or know what it really means?

    It really means that CS5 doesn't support ACR 7. CS5 supports ACR 6 and is downwards compatible, but not upwards compatible.

    ACR 7 does things differently than ACR 6 does. The sliders change the image in a different progression, some sliders were eliminated, new ones were introduced.

    Ok, I can understand that, thank you, but that there indicates that for the transition to and from Photoshop that CS6 will be necessary? It does give two options:

    1) "Open anyway"
    2) Open using LR4 adjustments (not exactly worded like that)

    Does that mean that I can use the LR converter (#2) or hope for the best (#1)?

    This seems to be a known problem. The 'Edit in...' command in the release version of LR4, seems to have a problem in the coding. Hopefully there will be a fix to it soon. It seems that some people are having some good luck with it, after reinstalling CS5...but not all.

    Here is a thread on the Adobe Forums
    Adobe Forums: Lightroom 4 Production error on "Edit In"

    No, that's not the problem I'm seeing, I don't get an error message. I get a message that says I need 7.0 to get full functionality of the edit in CS5.1

    When you 'open anyway', you essentially get ACR 6 functionality instead of ACR 7 functionality.

    I see...but if you don't mind explaining...

    when I edit a RAW file in LR4 I'm using ACR7, right? SO if I then edit details in CS5.1 using ACR6.7 am I losing something from my LR4 edit? It opens as usual directly in CS5, not CS's ACR.

    What about the "use LR4 adjustements" option? Hasn't anyone else seen this?
