Re: Setting camera-specific defaults in ACR (LR?).

gollywop wrote

Ron, to make camera-specific defaults in ACR (I assume LR does the same, but I don't know for sure), open a virgin raw file and make all the settings to the default values you desire. Be sure to include your desired default profile and all detail, curve, Remove CA, etc. settings. You will almost certainly be best off by setting the default WB to "As Shot."

Then go to the triple line-icon on the right-hand side of the panel bar. The panel bar is the one below the icons below the histogram that reads, variously, basic, Tone Curves, Detail, etc., depending on which panel you've selected.

If you click the triple-line icon on the r.h.s. of this bar, a drop-down menu occurs, and the second-to-the-last item in it is "Save New Camera Raw Defaults."

This is camera specific; you can set defaults for each different camera type you have, and, indeed, you can save them for a specific s/n if you have more than one camera of a given type (this is a preference item).

Now, every time you open a virgin image from that camera, it will be assigned the defaults (including the profile) that you have chosen.

In LR you can use the Develop menu (while in the Develop Module) and choose "Set Default Settings". If you've got the "Make defaults specific to camera ISO setting" option set you can then easily have different sharpening/noise reduction settings (or any other settings) applied to an image based on the ISO of the shot.
