In Bridge - go to the Edit menu, and select "Camera Raw Preferences", to
purge cache, or change the folder location.
In Camera Raw, click on the right pointing arrow next to the Settings
dropdown, and select Preferences from the menu.
Thanks. I found the option as you indicated in Bridge and made the change.
I could not find that option in Camera Raw. Where in Camera Raw is the "Settings dropdown" and its "right pointing arrow"? I am just curious to know.
First of all, you cannot make that setting in the ACR dialog. It isn't there. The settings drop-down is actually a tiny icon on the very right of the little bar directly beneath the different tabs in the ACR control panel. It allows you to choose the ACR default settings, order to load settings that you have saved, or to save a new setting if you so desire. But you need to configure ACR in the Camera Raw settings in Bridge.
If that's correct, it's changed since version 3.7, which is what I'm using.
The Settings dropdown is separate to the arrow I'm talking about.
Underneath the histogram, and just above the tabs, there is a dropdown
marked "Settings", with a down arrow, to select the different settings.
To the immediate right of the dropdown, there is a small arrow pointing to
the right, with no markings. Click on this to get the different settings
options (Load, Save, Export, etc), and at the very bottom is Preferences,
with a shortcut of Control-K, which will also invoke the Preferences Dialog.
Again, this is with v3.7, so if it has changed in later versions, my
4.1 is light-years away from 3.7, Klaas. The changes are massive.
I know, Ramón, and I'm busy saving my pennies to upgrade.<br /><br />As a hobbyist, it's a bit low on the "what shall I spend my money on" list <br /><grin>.
Yes, I know that is how it works in ACR 3.7. But I understood that you are asking how it works in 4.1. As Ramon has indicated, ACR has undergone some major revisions in version 4.1. And I tried to explain where the settings are located in it, and how you configure the new version.
You can see the new interface here:
It's essential reading.
