Please elaborate on exactly what you're looking for. Then I can tell you whether that functionality is achievable with 5.2 or not.
Hi and thanks, the input from someone on the 'team' is extremely valuable here!
With the tool set to 'parametric curve' you can make changes BUT the parametric curve window doesn't open up, unlike with the other 4 options (hue/saturation/luminance/greyscale) where using the tool opens up the appropriate panel alongside.
Unlike in the past where adjustments to these values would have been inputted manually, I think it would be important to add a 'return to default values' button in the appropriate panel/pane. It's a pain in the neck to make a whole bunch of tweaks, decide you want to start from scratch and have to enter a whole bunch of boxes to type '0'.
That said I'm still salviating over the added usage brought by these tools. As a wedding photographer you can imagine what a combination of the targeted brush and the local adjustment tools will do for me! I've only processed one wedding with CS4 so far, it took me almost double the time in ACR for all that CS4 is faster. But those pictures look PERFECT when they go to PS to batch for printing! Local Adjustments are extremely addictive, now you can get perfect pictures that you wouldn't have bothered with in the past particularly, hey the tool is there, why not lighten up that corner a bit!
BTW did I miss something or is there no DNG converter in the 5.2 update?
