You cut off the top of both screen shots, so I can't tell any info about the ACR version, etc. At least on the Mac, the top of the ACR window shows that info.
On the top image, the yellow triangle with the exclamation point tells you that no adjustments have been applied yet. On the bottom one, the triangle is gone, indicating that your default ACR settings have been already applied, hence the shift you reference.
It's that simple.
Actually, in full screen mode the top is cut off! I never noticed that since I always use full screen. This only happens in ACR. All other screens are fully represented. I may cut back on the height adjustment and see if I can see the top. Thanks for pointing it out, Ramon.
Back to the problem at hand, if you notice, all sliders are at -0-, and if you could look at all the adjustment panels, everything is neutral. So, what is it adjusting?
If I open a RAW file I also get the triangle, but when it disappears only the slightest change is noticeable in the histogram, and nothing in the image itself. This is true even with the .nefs tweaked.
Finally, the image 1 is correct with respect to the same file in PS. I compared the screen shot to the full image side by side, in PS. Image 2 is not. If I do a tweak in ACR then open in PS, it's not what I want to see.
This particular frame is tagged with the ACR icon in Bridge, but I have other tiffs that are not, and the same thing occurs.
FAPP, I cannot not color correct in ACR with a tiff. I do it as an .nef
Oh, and it is ACR 4.4.1.
>What's going on?
Actually, the Warning triangle is telling you that the full image is still being loaded and the preview and histogram will be an approximation until it does fully load...so, you want to wait till it fully loads before deciding anything critical.
What bothers me is that after fully loading, I get a color and density shift which does not correspond to the image in PS. This doesn't happen with a RAW that is subsequently opened in PS but not yet saved.
The approximation does correspond to the image in PS. So what is RAW adding, if all sliders are neutral (Set at -0-).
I would suggest checking your display profile...
Everything is freshly calibrated. The printer (Epson 3800 matches the screen. ACR does not, for a TIFF. ( I don't know about jpeg)
The evidence is in my screen shot.
Please note that upon closing (assuming no adjustments in ACR), the image looks correct in PS, ie no change.
So, we have a process where a tiff is opened from Bridge in ACR, the screen momentarily matched Bridge and PS, the screen changes color and density, upon closing, the image shows no change back in PS.
