ACR

Just a quick one: make sure you download the latest ACR version of PS- we are on 5.1 now and under the "camera" tab make sure to change it from ACR 4.6 to "Adobe Standard". This will give you better colours. Adobe has updated their raw converter and included camera profiles for the newer Sony models. (Same for Lightroom)

When you say camera tab do you mean camera calibration? I am unable to find a camera tab. I am using Photoshop CS4.

At the top left hand corner of ACR it says 'Camera Raw 5.1 - Sony DSLR A700' but when I open camera calibration, under >camera profile >Name it gives the choice of ACR 4.4 or ACR 4.2 only, no "Adobe Standard".

Same problem in lightroom 2.1.

What am I missing or doing wrong?

Ascot- open up CS4 and udner the "help" tab there is an update option. Click than one and see whether it downloads you the new profiles. And yes sorry mea culpa: it is under camera callibration once you open up a raw file and the raw file converter opens. Under the little triangle you should have two options- choose standard.
Hope this is more helpful?

Hi Stef,

Just looked in Lightroom ...  Are there options for ACR in Lightroom or is this just available in CS4? (can't see anything in prefs)

Yes this is for Lightroom as well. It is to be found under the development menu.

See above linki for more information but if you update your lightroom or ACR you should not have to download the profiles.

I see what is wrong now. I thought the new update was ACR 5.1, which I already had. The new update is ACR 5.2 which I am now downloading. Sorry about that, my mistake. :D

Actually my mistake. Should have made clear that the update is 5.2 not 5.1
Hope it works now.
