This is all set in ACR. All camera settings are ignored! A raw file is just what the sensor recorded, no more, no less.
Did you have this checked?
Everything else is set in the ACR workflow options. Click the link below the main image window:
Most file browsers and photo viewers will only show you the camera-generated jpeg preview, which is embedded in the file. Bridge will also do this initially, until it loads its own preview.
Thank you for your reply.
I wish it were that simple, the convert to grayscale was not checked, and my workflow was also set to Adobe RGB colour space as above. I have always worked with RAW, and have never experienced this before.
I've just done a little test, So in my HSL settings "convert to greyscale" is not set. My output profile is set to Adobe RGB 1998. If I save the file using Photoshop RAW and attempt to open the saved photo in Photo Viewer or Photoshop It opens in grayscale.
However when in Photoshop RAW I press the "Open Image" button (after making any adjustments I feel necessary), the colour photo opens in Photoshop. When I then save the file (in Photoshop) as a JPG, and open in Photo Viewer or Photoshop, the colour image opens as I'd expect.
Now I feel silly, that solved it. Mine had ended up set to "BW Dot Gain 15%". I didn't check that as I leave it on Default.
Thanks so much!
