Re: ACR7.3 & CS6

Now there's a problem because ACR only allows a maximum sharpening radius of 3 and I wanted more like 200, so I then selected Open Image to get the converted RAW into CS6 without having to save it.

In CS6........

USM set to radius 200, amount 30 (adjust to taste), threshold 0. This is the best tool for reducing haze. I only used a radius of 40 in the posted image but 200 is better, I hadn't used this trick for a while.

All these tweaks could be run as a batch, perhaps leaving Exposure as the only manual setting required for each image.

I haven't got Lightroom installed ATM, I'm not sure it has large radius unsharp mask available.

That's what Clarity slider is for in LR and ACR. All the adjustments are identical in corresponding versions of LR and ACR.
