ACR presets?
May 31, 2011

I'm capturing oil paintings for reproduction with a D3x with cross polarized lighting. Then converting though in camera raw. My camera profile is created using Color Checker Passport software/target which uses a DNG file. Given that, the profile is built without brightness or contrast adjustments. My question is, for accurate color, tone and exposure capture should the default ACR presets for brightness and contrast be reset to 0 when converting the captures to psd's? --
