Control Z Posted April 22, 2016 Share Posted April 22, 2016 I'm trying to give Bridge/ACR a fair shake, but I'm having some difficulties. Perhaps separate posts might be more appropriate, but any thoughts/solutions for the following would be appreciated: (1) Bridge previews look pixellated, making it difficult to judge focus on photos. Even when viewing a full-screen preview, the image looks soft. When I use the 100% loupe, it processes for a few seconds, then renders a sharp image, but the overall larger picture is not sharp. Is there an ideal preview setting, something like the smart preview in Lightroom? (2) Is there a way to view or revert to a non-processed raw file in ACR/Bridge? In the Lightroom develop module, pressing the "\" key shows a before-after. Is there anything equivalent in Bridge and ACR? Or alternatively, is there a way to create a duplicate of the processed file without the raw edits? (3) Is there a way to step back through edits in ACR/Bridge like Lightroom's history function? (3) ACR raw processing seems clunkier on my machine than Lightroom or other raw software (Aperture, Photos, Capture 1). When I move a slider, the whole image darkens momentarily when the slider is being moved, rather than just gradually showing the desired change. This is distracting and make it very difficult to do raw edits. (4) ACR highlight clipping is acting weird. Even though highlights are blown out (the histogram triangle is white), I can't get the blown out areas to display white. Even when I pushed the exposure slider all the way to the right and there is no detail in the photo, only a tiny patch is red. There must be some threshold setting somewhere, but I can't find it. See attached screen grab for an example. In this file, I purposely pushed exposure up all the way. Thanks very much! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
