Editing DNG using LibRaw with PS CC 2018 and Adobe Camera Raw 10.0

I opened a DNG image made with Galaxy S21 Ultra with a program called EasyHDR. I really like the white balance provided by LibRaw (or Dcraw, which is optional and looks the same), but I can't use Libraw/Dcraw settings in Adobe Camera Raw 10.0 (Photoshop CC 2018).

 

Here's a screenshot of what I'm talking about: https://postimg.cc/LYTYQ3ds

 

Is there any way I can use LibRaw with Camera Raw?

I asked on LibRaw's forum and they told me to ask here.

I'm talking specifically about Photoshop because I don't want to use any extra software just to do that one thing (adjust white balance in a certain way).

I doubt anyone here would be using LibRaw, you could try the Camera Raw forum, why CC 2018, that version is not supported any longer and the most recent version of Photoshop is 2024 and ACR version 16.2

I'm new to this message board, so I missed the Camera Raw subforum. I guess I should've posted this thread there.

 

I'm still using old versions of Adobe software because I'm a casual user and never felt the need to upgrade.

Do you actually have an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription, sounds like you're using a pirated copy of Photoshop, Photoshop CC 2018 was released in 2017 and you haven't upgraded since then?

Different raw converters are not compatible. They all use completely different processing engines. Any given setting in one raw converter won't mean the same thing in another. That includes white balance.

 

That said, I'd be very surprised if you couldn't achieve the same result in ACR. But you can't limit yourself to just the WB slider.

Well, my problem is that the way LibRaw/Dcraw render previews for this specific image is hard to replicate manually. I thought it would be possible to somehow make Photoshop/Camera Raw recognize those libraries so I could use their WB settings as a starting point.

The fundamental Camera Raw pipeline is not really exposed to the public, I’ve never heard of a way to plug in alternate raw processing libraries. One reason may be that various bits of code in Camera Raw might assume that the raw libraries work a certain way and are not set up to handle just any raw library.

 

However, the need to match different “looks” did motivate Adobe to provide many ways to alter the default appearance of raw images, and one of them is raw profiles (not the same as a preset). For example, the look of the default unadjusted white balance you see in Camera Raw may be altered by whatever the default raw profile is, and this might give you a way in. You might try to create a raw profile that matches the default look of libraw, and make that your default raw profile so that all images that come in look the way you want.
