Adobe Camera Raw 8.4.1 - part 1 of 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

by Mike McNamee Published 01/08/2014


With the expiry of the beta version of Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) which came with the original download of Adobe Creative Cloud, it is timely to examine the subtle changes that have occurred during a slightly extended outlook period. By this we mean that we are going back to version CS5. This is for two reasons: there is an outside chance that the readers may have files of this older generation and have not had cause to go back to them (yet) but also because as professionals we are a conservative lot and might not yet (or only recently) have upgraded.


The first thing to notice is that if a file has been reprocessed more recently (ie after 2012) and you then open that legacy file in your legacy version of Photoshop, you will be offered the option to go back to the 2010 processing engine. There is no reason to do so, but if you do, you will notice that there is more highlight clipping in the older processing - so be warned!
