    Which Camera Raw functions are in Photoshop Elements?

    Robert Shomler Level 4

      At times I'll suggest something to do in ACR in conversations with other photographers.  Sometimes I get a response that they can't find what I referred to in ACR.  Usually turns out they are using Elements (PSE), which has a subset of ACR function.  I've been looking for a list of ACR functions in PSE -- searching Adobe forums and products so far without success.  I have tried to assemble such a list from what I have in ACR 6.3 and by reading the Adobe PSE9 help files (I don't have PSE).  Here's what I've assembled.  Anyone have any corrections or additions?  Thanks.

       

      ------------

       

      Adjustment tabs that are not in PSE: Tone curves, HSL Grayscale, Split toning, Lens corrections,  Effects (Grain, Post-crop vignetting), Presets, Snapshots
         
      Detail Adjustment Tab - Noise Reduction: PSE has Luminance and Color;  PS adds Luminance detail and contrast, Color detail

       

      Tools that are not in PSE:  Color sampler tool, Targeted adjustment tool, Spot removal, Local adjustments (Adjustment Brush and Graduated Filter)

       

      Workflow options: PSE - depth only (8/16);  in PS: Color space (target color profile), Size, Resolution, Sharpen for...

       

      Save Image button: PSE saves only as DNG file type; in PS: Save as jpeg, tiff, psd file types

       

       

      Question on PSE White Balance Pull-down list: Does PSE offer only As Shot or Custom? (No auto, daylight, ... flash?)
