Actions either incoroprate ALL of the Camera Raw parameters or ONLY the workflow options...CR 4 and CR 3 are the same in that regard. The difference is whether or not you have the overrride open options checked.
I shoot RAW with my D2X camera. I process the RAW images in Camera RAW 4.1 which came with CS3.
When I save AS, it saves the JPEGS files as 16 bits. I then have to convert images to 8 bits to save images as JPEGS.
How do I automatically save RAW images as 8 bits so I do not have to convert each image?
Larry, <br /> <br /> Look at the options right under the ACR dialog box. <br /> <br />c <a href="http://www.pixentral.com/show.php?picture=1kZuy6SMKFy2GqR2dQibfooc6ZDyc" /></a> <img alt="Picture hosted by Pixentral" src="http://www.pixentral.com/hosted/1kZuy6SMKFy2GqR2dQibfooc6ZDyc_thumb.jpg" border="0" /> <br />c Click on the thumbnail <br /> <br /> These settings are sticky; they will remain the same once you define them (or change them). <br /> <br /> This might be a good time for you to check out the Help files. <br /> <br /> Next time, please start a new topic or find an appropriate existing thread rather than bury it in a totally unrelated one.
to Jeff: thanks for the reply but I'm referring to scripts, not actions.
If you enable the scriptListener to log what you do in CS3 (and then use in a script), opening images in ACR will be log without any parameters. That's the problem.
to larry: you can open the image as 8 bit, click on the text in the center-bottom of ACR and sets the depth to 8 bit

Something is not right in the above. Are you creating 16-bit TIFFs first? If you create a JPEG file, that will have 8 bit depth.
