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!
I adjust the exposure on almost every image in ACR and have never found a way to do it conveniently with the keyboard, preferrably with my left hand. Currently, I can use the mouse to drag the adjustment or use the mouse to place the cursor or selection into the exposure value box and then use the up and down arrow with my right/mouse hand. If I forget to give focus to the Exposure control and start pressing the up/down arrow, acr moves to the next or previous image
My preference would be to use the Z key to decrease exposure by one increment and the X key to increase it, without having to give focus to the Exposure control. I know I can create presets to set the exposure to a specific increment like +.3, but that still requires using the mouse.
Am I missing something? Is there an easier way to adjust exposure in ACR?
I would like the poorly named "Workflow Options" at the bottom of the screen in ACR to be more useful.
Specifically, I would like the ability to choose settings from presets I created. I would also like to have a default setting that is in place when acr opens, instead of the last used.
For example, I normally have Workflow set to create 16 bit Adobe RGB PSD files, but sometimes I would like to create 8 bit sRGB jpg's. That's easy enough to setup, but it's too easy to leave that setting, and then accidentally create a bunch of jpgs the next time I use ACR instead of the 16 bit psd's I prefer.
My feature request would probably save me about 30 minutes to an hour per shoot I do.
It should be extremely easy to impliment, and I think the secondary market would run with it in the way (albeit smaller) they have for Photoshop actions/ACR xmps. If it has been requested before, I would like to emphatically second that request.
The request: ability to save Adjustment Brushes presets.
The implimentation: have a window identical to the one seen on the Presets and Snapshots tab below the area for masking. (If you're worried about screen realestate, I could manage with a dropdown.) A simple Save button at the bottom would store the preset for the current brush.
The usage: Since ACR 5, I have completely switch my vignetting and lighting adjustment to ACR from Photoshop. I would have 1 preset for eyes with increased contrast, decreased saturation, increased clarity and sharpness, and a small brush size. Another preset would be my vignetter. It would have a large brush, dropped exposure and brightness, decreased clarity and decreased contrast. To switch every one of these every time every picture wastes much time. Touchup would take seconds rather than minutes.
As me any questions for follow-up on this.
Just 3 most important items, in my opinion:
1. ACR 5.3 has pretty bad color bleeding artifacts, I hope this will be fixed at some point.
Attached isa comparison with silkypix 3.0. RAW file was shot with Mamiya ZD camera.
Black and white portion is a blue channel.
2. Lens or sensor cast correction. This is particularly important for medium format digital.
Basically, the ability to offset the developed raw image with a lens cast calibration raw file.
The calibration shot is an evenly exposed gray card. This should be blurred before use in
calculations of the final output.
CaptureOne does this.
3. Automatic Chromatic Aberration correction.
Reference: Nikon Capture NX2.
Your post is blank, as are many (most?) attempted through eimail.
I hadn't seen a blank post for a while so thought the issue had been sorted. Appears no-one is on the case. It says at the bottom of all emails:
To post a reply to the thread message, either reply to this email (recommended) or visit the message page: http://forums.adobe.com/message/1984021#1984021
Notice "recommended!!!" Hmmm....When I clicked link, there was NO reply option and NO indication to say you must login to reply.
When I clicked to go to original post, I was presented with ALL posts. Possibly because I wasn't logged in but how am I to know login is a requirement for the link to work "as expected?"
Useless forum software< IMO...Well, maybe not entirely useless but certainly not thought out or monitored or tested before being released.
Back to the reply:
3. *Automatic Chromatic Aberration correction*.

Yes, this one would save an incredible amount of time. The current auto feature just doesn't go far enough.
I started with a Fuji S2. Their software removed CA completely but was a dog to use.
What's more, I could shoot a ferris wheel against a sky and get clean spokes (remove blue spill).
