Camera Raw 7.1 Release Candidate Notes

These items have been FIXED in Camera Raw 7.1 Release Candidate:

  • Keyboard shortcuts for the point curve channel on Windows were not functional
  • Local corrections are not refreshing after applying lens corrections.  This occurs on both TIFF and JPEG files with noise reduction disabled.
  • Point curve adjustments made to a single R,G, or B channels in the Tone Curve tab can be reset a channel curve is adjusted.
  • Photoshop CS5 and Bridge show different values for the image resolution in certain images.  Photoshop and Bridge are not changing the image resolution, but displaying different values.
  • Applying keywords to multiple files can sometimes cause errors when writing the keyword metadata to file.  This can occur when the “Save Image Settings in” preference within Camera Raw is set to the Camera Raw database.

Sadly, the people at Abode have yet to hear about the Fujifilm X-Pro1.

Adobe posted this on their Lightroom blog weeks ago: NOTE: The Lightroom and Camera Raw team is well aware of the new X-Pro1 camera from FUJIFILM. We are currently developing raw support for the X-Pro1 and look forward to providing it as soon as support is complete. Thanks for your patience on this topic.

Adobe disappoints again with continued failure to add support for
Fujifilm x-pro1.

Yep. PS CS6 + LR4.1RC2 = no problem.

LR doesn't use the ACR plugin, though both ACR and LR are based on the same processing engine. There's already a second release candidate of LR 4.1 that includes these cameras, I think.

After the terrible showing in DPReview's samples, I'd hope they would continue to work on X-Pro1 support vs releasing it at it's current state.

Our test scene is not a useful way of assessing the performance of Adobe Camera Raw, since we minimise sharpening and noise reduction. The ACR build we have is, in detail terms, on a par with the camera's JPEGs.

I am still convinced the focus is off in that X Pro1 sample - the foreground is tack sharp the rest is mush.....@ R Butler, I saw your response to my orig post about that sample, extreme descentering issue or defective lens perhaps, it just doesn't make sense
