    Can ACR 6.1 RC be used with Lightroom 3B2?

  2. JW Stephenson says:

    Based on comments from the LR3 forum, the new ACR 6.1 will not work with LR3b2. It will work with the final LR3 release which hopefully will be very soon.

    I would like to see Lightroom have color management just as photoshop and illustrator would have the same color settings (ctl K) for example. If all the rest of the adobe apps share the same color settings, it would be a great thing to include lightroom into the loop as well. I find that although my images look one way in lightroom they look different in photoshop, but they print as i see them in photoshop. Can we add this to the wish list for the final release please?Ron

    Photoshop CS5 is not showing the Canon 7D when doing lens correction. It shows the 50D, 5D but not the 7D. When will the 7D be added to the lens correction app?

  5. Ron says:

    I’m desparate here: For the life of me, I can’t seem to get these Adobe Lightroom profiles to work. I shoot with a Pentax K-7 and when I choose camera calibration for PEF/RAW/DNG the only 2 choices I get are Adobe Standard or Camera Standard…Is that installed correctly? Should it say Pentax K-7 in the pulldown? Is Adobe Standard the one that chooses the cameras settings or is it camera? (If it is camera should it say my camera’s actual name or just this generic CAMERA standard ->what if I have two cameras?)Somebody please help me. Otherwise I may have to get a different PP software. Sorry Noob here. Please help.

    It’s my understanding that the “Camera” options always refer to the camera that took the picture, as identified in the EXIF data. Some cameras have multiple interpretive settings, such as Portrait or Vibrant. In such a case, more Camera options will show up in your list. So I think you already have it working correctly.

    Mike,It’s far less important that the camera body be in the correction drop down then the lens you are using.For me i shoot with a D300s, and it’s not there, but the corrections in 6.1 work lovely with my Sigma 10-20 lens.Just pick your lens and you will be rocking and rolling :D(not having the camera in the list just means “auto” won’t work)Graham

    I am also looking for lens correction files for the Canon 7D. The camera has been out and in use now for 7 months, I would have hoped for these files by now.
