Okay, so a guy sends me a file. I open it in ACR, adjust it, and send it to PS CS4 as a smart object.
Now, I'd like to send it to the person in a way that they can see the final result, and also the ACR settings that were used, but I'm not even sure what version of ACR they have. What do I need to send? I'm not sure where that XMP metadata is stored. Is it in the PSD (or TIFF), or in ACR cache? Can I just send them the PSD, or should I save the ACR settings as a preset and send them the preset for them to apply to their file themselves? And what to do if my version of ACR is more current than theirs? Would converting to a DNG help here?
