    why can't I save camera raw defaults?


      I am currently unable to reset my camera raw defaults in CS5 (Camera raw 6.5).  When I click on "Save Camera Raw Defaults", the changes do not show up when I open up a new image using Adobe Bridge. I seem to be stuck with the changes I made some time ago. What could be happening?

          Camera Raw uses the same settings you used last time to open a file.  That's just the way it works.  The defaults you set will be used on any image you haven't opened before.


          In order to revert an image that's been opened before to the new defaults, you need to do one of the following:


          1.  Choose Camera Raw Defaults from the menu:





          2.  Depending on how you have configured Camera Raw to remember your past settings, either delete the sidecar XMP files or go into Edit - Preferences - Camera Raw... and purge your Camera Raw cache if you'd like to throw away all previous settings and have future opens use your new defaults.

            Thanks very much, Noel.  I didn't realize it worked that way.
