ACR and Lightroom's reds, especially from Canon camera's, are poor. I have attached sample images to highlight this.
All you need to do is simply record a Gretag Macbeth Colorchecker and run this script http://www.xs4all.nl/~tindeman/raw/acr-calibrator-l.html
Save out the suggested values in ACR's Calibrate tool. If performed 'correctly' it will assisit greatly in amending the hues and saturation. See accurate testing of three such scripts at -http://www.photoactivity.com/Pagine/Artico...l%20sole_en.asp
The motorcycle leathers, which I own, were snapped to demonstrate Canon's problem reds. The camera was pre-white balanced. The closest match, whilst viewing the leathers in a light booth, in cave conditions, against an accurately calibrated minitor, are the Tindreman(ACR) and C1 Pro using the generic profile. All other conversions are unsatisfactory.
I have been using Tom Fors and Tindemans scripts for sometime with very good effect. I also use C1 Pro. With the script I prefer ACR, without the script C1 Pro wins hands down, regarding colour quality, so I never discount C1 Pro. Both converters provide slightly different colour and contrast flavours, out of the box.[attachment=1377:attachment][attachment=1378:attachment][attachment=1375:att
