running ACR 6.1 on Windows XP boxes. I'm used to adjusting white balance by utilizing color temperature settings, but I don't seem to have that option in ACR 6.1--All I have is a sliding scale from -100 to +100 and I don't see any way to change this. Am I stuck with using ACR this way?
What type of image format is it?
The behavior you're describing is for a non-RAW image. RAW images have absolute temperature. JPGs and TIFs only have relative temperature because the white-balance has already been baked in so to speak without enough information to reverse-engineer the absolute color temperature.
OK, that makes sense and I never thought of it that way. I've been working on some jpgs that others shot last weekend so I opened some of my raw files and, sure enough, I can adjust the color temperature in the NEF files. Thanks for the quick response to my question!
