          What is really very confusing in the Elements ACR module is the 'Save' button.

          As explained in the help file (Help button, bottom left), that converts the raw file to the Adobe raw format : DNG.

          You may want to use it or not...

           

          But, what's important is that once you have made edits with the different sliders, you save your edits (your recipe) simply by clicking the 'Done' button. If you want to save into a photo format like jpeg, psd, tiff or any other format supported by Elements, you simply click on 'Open' and save from the editor.
