I am having a problem in saving a new profile as a default. If I select Camera Standard beta 1, for example, and save it as the new default from the flyout menu,1t seems to remain the default for all files in a particular folder, but when I open a file from another folder, the profile has returned to the original default, ACR 4.4. There is a certain hit-or-miss quality to this, as sometimes several files (chosen at random from various folders) may show the new default, and then others will not. I also noted that the ACR profiles seem to vary, depending on when the image was taken -- old ones may show 4.4 and 2.4 on the list, and newer images may show ACR 4.4 and 4.2. I don't understand.
- Your newly-specified defaults only apply to NEW images. If you're working with older images which already have image settings/adjustments then they will keep the old profile setting. You have to either batch-apply the new profile or use the 'Camera Raw Defaults' option from the flyout.
