After reading about the perspective correction that is supposed to be available in ACR 6.1, I downloaded it and installed it into PSE 8 (Windows 7 64bit). Installation seemed to work. It does say 6.1 when I open Camera Raw. However, I don't see any of the cool new features like lens correction, or
perspective correction. Do they not work with Elements 8?
PSE has limited access to many of the ACR adjustments. The ACR you have with PSE8 will actually perform the adjustments if they are in the sidecar or embedded in the image, but only Photoshop or Lightroom have the user-interface to specify those adjustments and place them in the sidecar or embed them in the image metadata.
OK, that's about what I suspected. Thanks for the info.
