any methods of creating profile sets similar to Neat Image or NN?
I love NN but it's not 64bit yet, and NI is great but the UI is a little rusty. It would be great to have lens profiles and noise profiles all in ACR. Anyone stumble upon a method for creating noise profiles efficiently as in NN or NI? Or have I overlooked it and it's already in CS5?
Baseline noise reduction levels are already set on a per-model basis in ACR. You can customize the settings on a per-ISO basis if you want, by (1) enabling that option in the Preferences, (2) setting your preferred NR settings in the Detail panel, and (3) choose "Save New Camera Raw Defaults" from the flyout menu.
There is not a method of providing an image of a photographed chart and feeding that to ACR to build profiles. However, you can use such a chart to evaluate noise reduction settings as you experiment with which values work best for your camera (and your personal preference).
> (1) enabling that option in the Preferences,
thanks, where is the documentation for ACR hidden? I can't seem to find it.
The option in preferences is self-explanatory.
