Using Camera Raw - Any Downsides to This?

Dear Folks,

When presented with a photo for restoration, are there any downsides to making adjustments first in Adobe Camera Raw (CS6) prior to opening the photo in Photoshop?

Thanks to all who respond.

Dave

Not that I can think of? Especially if you retain control and access of the original. If you can get part way to where you want to be, using ACR, then why not?

The answer is.... only if it makes your life more difficult once you get into photoshop. Photoshop and ACR are not Nuke. Everything after ACR is non-linear, and I'm not sure ACR is entirely linear. It's definitely different. Things respond a little differently in ACR, but you can make as many changes there as you like. Just don't do anything that blocks your shadows up too much or really anything that causes more problems than it solves.

The great thing about camera raw.. is if you find that your settings are not working the way you would like.. than just reset the acr settings...and begin again.

ONLY upsides! Faster, no image or data loss (you're not fixing existing pixels, you're creating ideal pixels). JIT (Just In Time) processing unlike Photoshop (render the finished TIFF or PSD when you are done). High bit, wide gamut linear processing. Do as much heavy lifting in ACR/LR or a good raw processor using raw data as humanly possible. In some cases, you'll never make a trip into Photoshop but in some cases, you'll continue to use it's toolset for pixel editing that it is so good at. Global tone, color, NR and sharpening? Do it in ACR.
