In future it would helpful if you could use this thread as a means to add
"Features" that you would like to see in future releases of Adobe Camera Raw.
Please do NOT create additional new Topics and try not to duplicate requests by other users. Also, be thorough in your description of the feature and why you think Adobe should consider it.
Oh, and if you find it necessary to comment on someone's feature request/suggestion, try not to get into a shouting match. The penalty for doing so is...
b If you're asking that a particular camera is supported in a future release or just taking the opportunity to carp that yours isn't then please do so in another thread!
Kudos to Thomas, et al for producing such a great tool.
I went through this list trying to make sure I am being original here - and to the best of my knowledge I am.
1. In, ACR, for the individual tabs: an on/off button, and a reset to last opened state button. I realize you can use the Preview box to show and hide the cumulative effect. What the on/off button would do is allow you to preview just the changes you have made to that tab, and not the cumulative effect. I realize there are a bazillion levels of undo, but there are times when it would be nice to go back to the 'entry state' with a single click. I realize the reset button does this for all the tabs - I'd like this effect for each tab individually
2. Incorporated into the sidecar and/or DNG ACR meta: the ability to have multiple looks, as in multiple groups of ACR settings. They could have a ranking so there is always a primary for use in creating previews, etc. It would be especially nice when I need to have a B&W version, a Cool version and a Warm version of the same image, and even nicer when I have to do this across a group of images. I realize that I can save ACR settings files outside of the file, but it would be nice to have these travel with the file. It would also allow me to preserve what I believe to be the best 'normal' conversion settings, while letting me experiment with, for example, a high contrast, punchy blacks cross process look.
