Why do you save at levels 11 and 12 out of Photoshop, and complain that the file sizes are different from Camera Raw at levels 9 and 10. Why not save out of Camera Raw at levels 11 and 12? [It does allow that...]
the question isn't stupid, just seems a little bit strange in my point of view. But you're right, i must confess. So halfway i am the stupid, not the question (and not the software).
But when i choose 'maximum' in ACR it gives me the 10, and i thought maximum is the maximum. For me it tells about the highest possible quality. There is no value bigger than the maximum.
I've never realize that in PS the way is exactly the same like in ACR! In PS the maximum is 10 too!! I'm always enter the value by the keyboard and never choose a preset. And in PS there's a slider showing the full scale and the entered value, so on that i can see that there's life after the maximum. in ACR the missing slider suggested me that 10 is the top level. But now i've entered 11 and 12 and gave the same sizes as i gave from PS with 11 and 12.
So i can conclude that the GUI of ACR isn't perfect (OK, i *must* now it uses the same engine/values like PS), but the method behind the scenes is perfect, like in PS. Sorry for the trouble and thanks for the very fast answer!
You didn't know Thomas Knoll was a Spinal Tap fan did you?
Actually, the best Spinal Tap reference is the maximum zoom factor in Lightroom.
The fairly awkward 1-12 JPEG quality scale and the names for the values was copied from Photoshop, which gained these features over several versions and was trying to maintain backward compatibility while doing so.
I agree we should copy the slider also.
May i have a slightly offtopic question? What is the story behind the 12 degrees scale in Photoshop?
