Camera Raw 7.2 is now available as a final release through the update mechanism in Photoshop CS6.  The goal of this release is to provide additional camera raw support and lens profile support as well as address bugs that were introduced in previous releases of Camera Raw.  Customers of previous versions of Photoshop can utilize DNG Converter 7.2 for raw file support for newly added cameras. Please see The Lightroom Journal for more information .

    Hi Julianne,
    I just joined the world of lightroom when I updated PS to CS6 for a new camera the Nikon D600. Wow, LR has changed my life and thanks so much for all your help in learning how to use it!

    Is it true that the preliminary support for D600 NEFs in ACR7.2 does not include camera calibration profiles for the D600. I use in-camera picture controls to make adjustments. Is it better to use calibration settings or your own presets of color adjustments to get your raw files to look like the JPEGS out of the camera as a starting point for adjustments?

    ACR 7.2 provides preliminary support for the Nikon D600. In the future we will provide full support, which will include camera calibration profiles for the Nikon D600.

    Choosing whether or not to select or create a profile other than the Adobe Standard is really a workflow question. I tend to use the Adobe Standard profile and adjust the image using the Basic tools. Others start with the camera profiles and adjust from there. You can get the same results, just depends on what you’re looking for.

    I was wondering when i export from camera raw should i export as jpg or DNG ? which is best for photoshop processing , and maintain best quality ? i undestand that finally jpg is the most common solution for accesability to users!

    what’s your opinion regarding this aspect ?
    thank you !

      If you export a JPEG the file will be in 8 bit and compressed. I would export as a TIFF or PSD file to maintain the quality of the image. There are several videos on the Lightroom Video page under EXPORTING FILES AND HANDING OFF IMAGES TO PHOTOSHOP that I think will help answer your questions.
