Is Hot Pixel Reduction Still Happening in Camera Raw?

Jun 14, 2012 2:35 PM

Seems to me that in past versions of Camera Raw I was seeing pretty effective hot pixel removal.  Is that still in the converter?


I was just processing some high ISO night shots and it sure seems to me that I see more hot pixels in the dark places than I used to in conversions.  But it could just be these images and the settings I am using bringing them out.

    Naturally, you'll want more authoritative confirmation  , but the two comments I would have are that (1) I have no reason to believe that hot pixel mapping has been discontinued in ACR and (2) I see no evidence of that in my current images processed by ACR 7.1.


    Of course, if you still have older versions of Ps/ACR installed, you can compare one of your current files, converted to DNG if necessary, processed in ACR 7.x and earlier versions.

    I have a single red hot pixel almost in the center of my sensor that I can see at ISO 100 and ACR 7.1 removes this, still.
