ACR - where did 'Save New Camera RAW defaults' go? I used this all the time!

I shoot motor sports. I do 90% of my PP in ACR. At an event, I will frequently move from location to location and this obviously changes the light and therefore the ACR settings change each time. I therefore use the 'Save New Camera RAW Defaults' each time I open the first image shot from a new location (or whenever the light changes). This saves me time when processing all the shots from each location as subsequent shots open up with the settings already applied and so I need only tweak things rather than start anew with every image.

 

Having applied the latest ACR update however, it seems the 'Save New Camera RAW Defaults' option has vanished. I am unable to save a set of default settings each time the light changes. So far, the only way I have found to recall the settings used last time is to pull down the relevant menu and choose 'Use Last Conversion' for every single image.

 

Am I missing something? Is there a way to save new defaults with the latest iteration of ACR? I simply can't believe this very useful feature has been removed!

I'm  bit confused to your use of the camera RAW defaults and that you change them.

I set it and forget it for each camera I own presently or in the past. They are just Basic Default settings I want applied to each and every photo I take with each specific camera I've used. Just because the lighting might change from image to image or year to year (whatever time) doesn't mean I change the Default settings for that camera.

I think you are missing the point, when I open an image I do not want Adobe to apply any sharpeing nor do I want any noise reduction. In previouse iterations it was possible to set your own parameters quite easily

"I do not want Adobe to apply any sharpeing nor do I want any noise reduction."

That should still be possible.

@JustShoot Me.. I have been an advertising shooter since 1990 and started on photoshop 2. I have been managing my owm color workflow and composite work i have depended heavily on "save as new camera defaults" removing this is really dusrruptive. Spencerphoto was asking a valid question... I had a brand shoot for a cosmetics brand last week and was cursing Adobe for changing this for not having it was dissruptive for the entire shoot and today, when i should be starting my post work, I gotta figure out how to remedy this. its costing me money. its like going into a tool and die shop and changing the postion on someone's drill press. 

 

@Spencerphoto if I figure it out.. i'll let you know..

Actually I think what the OP needs is Lightroom, where you quickly and conveniently synchronise a large number of files.

 

ACR is really more appropriate for single images one at a time. For volume work, Lightroom is superior in more ways than I can begin to mention.

I agree with you SpencrPhoto - The responses do not address you question.  I'll add to your question -

 

WHAT HAPPENED TO APPLYING PRESETS TO DIFFERENT ISO's AND DIFFERENT CAMERAS?

 

I work with 3 cameras and had different presets for all the ISO's I use for each body.  Previousely I could open any image and have my basic presets applied (especially Sharpening, Noise Reduction, Tone, CA, etc). 

 

Working with hundreds of images from a assignment without the ability to apply my basic adjustments automaticially to specific ISO images is bad foresight on Adobe part. 

 

Case in point - you have an 10 image sequence that your working up in ACR - you may have 2/3/4 different ISO ranges - having to adjust each from a starting point for each image is counterproductive.  Imagine doing this for over and over aging for each sequence 😞

I absolutely agree with you, and I've raised this concern several times.

 

It's still possible, mind you - but it's not as simple as it was. Here's how:

The relevant parts start near the end of page one and through page two.

 

This refers to Lightroom, but the procedure is exactly the same for ACR.

Hi D,

 

thanks to D_Fosse's posts I got through the programming quite swiftly, and I couldn't agree more that this is not our job at all. When you buy expensive software you would not expect to be doing this.

I have created an xmp-file with pretty precize corrections so the images from my 5D mkiii are pretty similar from 200-1600 iso. I typically mix them together to create 1 new image, so I need them to be similar in grain and detail.

If you want I can send you my code.

 

Best from Amsterdam, Thijs

I constantly change settings while shooting then evaluate the Raw images as I work through my shots. Sometimes a Raw default works for an entire job sometimes I make adjustments throughout my color correcting process. So easy to just save new camera Raw default and move on. Do software companies just hire people who justify thier jobs by changing what is working instead of adding new features? This is going to slow my workflow way down.  Mission acomplished meddling douches.

Agreed. They made a useful feature into an annoying pain in the rear. Why couldn't they have kept the old, convenient way of saving defaults, but integrated a new management system behind the scenes for folks who wanted something like that? Never mind losing all my existing defaults with no warning.  Really big screw up here Adobe. Never been so close to switching!

Agreed,

     eliminating "save new camera raw defaults" has made my entire workflow slower and clunkier. Whenever I add a new user preset, I actually have to restart Bridge to have it load or preview thembnails. In General PS 2022, is a HUGE step backward and toward a consumer type software. In the meantime does anyone know of a quick way to change camera raw defaults and get them to immediately preview in Bridge? I've been using PS since 93, 2022 is the worst update I've encountered. It's absolutely cumbersome.

I upgraded to PS 2022 on a Mac. "Save new camera raw defaults" is now missing. From what I can gather, the new process involves saving a preset, restarting Bridge and then going to preferences and selecting that preset to have the thunbnails in Bridge use those camera raw settings. It's a bit ridiculous. My editing is takes way longer now. Being able to create a camera raw default on the fly and apply it to your current project was super fast and helpful. The new process is clunky, slow and cumbersome. Please bring back "SAVE CAMERA RAW DEFAULTS"

I don't have any use to preview my images in bridge with a general "Camera Setting" every shoot is different and I need to make my selections while viewing each specific shoot with an appropriate preview. Has anyone found any work arounds?
