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.

Moved to the Camera Raw forum from the Photoshop forum.

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.

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

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:

https://community.adobe.com/t5/lightroom-classic/important-update-lightroom-classic-to-9-2-read-the-... 

 

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
