I am a neophyte. Please excuse my ignorance:
I have been making images with a Epson 3200 flatbed scanner. I have found that best output for color correction is DNG. I am able to correct color, exposure, sharpness, etc. in Camera Raw, but when I save my changes/settings and open the images in Photoshop, none of my Camera Raw corrections carry over. These changes/settings are obviously saved somewhere (CR database? Side-car XMP?) because the images consistently load in Camera Raw with my changes/settings.
Has anyone experienced this or have any idea why this is happening? I have tried every conceivable combination of settings, file types, etc. Please refer to the screenshots below to see the change in color between the applications. (A note: the overall screen pattern and distortion are part of the image.)
Camera Raw -
Thank you for taking a look.
