Discover all of the new refinements made to the Adjustment Brush in Camera Raw including the ability to reposition brush adjustments in the video below.

In addition, these shortcuts will help when using the Adjustment Brush:
• Command + Option -drag (Mac) | Control + Alt -drag (Win) an Adjustment Brush pin to duplicate the pin.
• Option -click (Mac) | Alt -click(Win) to delete the pin.
• If you prefer, Control -click (Mac) | Right Mouse -click (Win) displays both options – to duplicate or delete a pin.
• Control -click (Mac) | Right Mouse -click (Win) on the pin to access the option to “Reset Local Correction Settings” from the context menu. Or, use the fly-out menu to choose “Reset Local Correction Settings” – whichever is faster for you.

    Tks. for all your help in Photoshop CC 2014

    These are some really handy enhancements, but they seem to be confined to PhotoShop ACR and not yet available in Lightroom, which I thought shared the same engine.

    Conversely, Lightroom seems to offer scrubby sliders for targeted color adjustments in HSL while I don’t see that feature in ACR. Do you know if there will be a coming-together of the feature sets so that we don’t have to go back and forth to adjust RAW images?

      The targeted adjustment tool for HSL is available in the tool bar in ACR.
      The Graduated Filter brush will eventually find its way into Lightroom.

      Hi Wick, yes, the new features found in ACR will be available in future version of Lightroom to match ACR. Photoshop’s ACR has a targeted adjustment tool. It’s located in the top left of the ACR dialog, 5th tool in from the left.

    Does Camera Raw have scalable fonts yet for HiRes users or is still very tiny and unusable?
