    Rather dumb question about cropping in ACR

    I crop an image. Later I need to make a minor adjustment to the crop. A soon I click the crop tool the full uncropped image appears on the screen. The originally cropped image is now a small highlighted area in the center of the image. Rather useless for detailed work. Is there a way of cropping...

    Adobe Camera Raw and white ( for color balance)

    I've come across several instances where someone has stated that white is the best choice to color balance in ACR. Something about how the files are encoded. Grey will work, but its not as accurate as white. Is this true? They point out that ACR only has a white sample tool, while PS has three...

    Help, am I seeing things? Question about Kodak Color Control Patches

    Is the white on the card one solid color? When I look at it I see a slight difference between the top and bottom (despite not having a dividing line like the other colors). I see the top having a slightly grayish hint to it. Or is this an illusion caused by the surrounding colors? And if it is...

    Exposure consistency among different copies of PS/ACR (all cc 2019)

    Hey, all I'm having to work on three different machines. A desktop with a graphics card and 4k monitor, a laptop, and a desktop with a real crappy monitor. The 4k machine and laptop are both new. The 4K monitor is the only one calibrated. My concern is not so much the look of the images on the...

    Setting black and white points. Very divergent results.

    Starting from zero... First, I used the "ALT" method. I ended up with +33 white and -12 black. Next, I tried "auto". I got +33 white and +38 black. Why the large difference with blacks? Is this my problem: my images are of 19th century documents on a black background. The camera and/or ACR are...

    cs6 zoom tool and blurry images

    I've been messing around with some images recently and noticed that images are sharp at some percentages but not at others. I have an image that is sharp at 16.67%, blurry at 15.68%(fit screen) and 13.5%(print size), and sharp once again at 12.5%. Is it possible to make a non-standard size image...

    What you see is not what you get . . . not even close! (or was my old monitor pl

    I recently had to replace my old monitor. After letting it warm up for 30 min. all I could get out of it was a brightness of 60 something when I needed somewhere around 120 to calibrate it. Its replacement, an Asus 27” incher , was everything I wanted except when it came to editing images...

    To moire or not to moire ... help I'm lost?

    Dear friends, First, is what I'm seeing in the attached image moire or is it something else that looks like a moire pattern? All the examples I've come across on how to deal with moire involve only one color, not thin lines of alternating colors. (blue and white in this case) Getting to the...
