Hi Harj,

Like them all. With LR3.2, we really don't care if Olympus E5 extended the ISO to 6400 or not.

Hi Jacob

Yeah.. I've been nicely surpised how well LR3.2 deal with eth RAW files esp at High ISo - I had to coule check the exifs from the RAw files to make sure that they were what I was seeing. Now with the ISO 1600 shot - thats just go the deafult NR for LR .. I never use it so I forgot about making any changes to it. You have to give ADobe credit for how nice an improvement ACR6.x/LR3.2 has been over the previous versions.

Nice shots of good looking pups. I have been tempted to try LR3 but right now I am just trying to get a good ACR / CS5 workflow established.

Nice shots Harjj. It is not easy to get black fur properly exposed against a light background. Good job.

Hi Guys!

Paul, CS5/ACR6.2 will give you the same results as LR3.2. All your basically missing is the pic management abilities that LR brings and those are pretty handy, a larger number of presets and a few other bits but the actual processing quality is exactly the same.

Steve/Ted - It took me 4 attempts to get that first shot right and I was really surprised how good IQ was at ISO1600. I had to double check and make sure I hadn't made a mistake. I think if I had used the new LR/ACr NR controls it would even cleaner but like i said earlier I hardly ever use them.

Cheers

Harj

Hi Paul

From memory .. LR 3.2 default NR settings;

luminous - none

Colour - 25
detail - 50

I could be wrong about the detail - but I think its default setting is 50.

Cheers

Harj

Hi Paul,

In another post you included some settings recommended for noise reduction:

The default ACR 6.2 capture settings recommended by the software author for use with his action set are: Amount:15, Radius:0.5, Detail:100, Luminance:40, Luminance Detail:100, Luminance Contrast:0, Color:4, Color Detail:100. I've tried this with several images including this one and it seems to work well.

Have you drifted away from those? The reason for the question is that I've found those settings very effective- so much so that they are now my default settings. From there, I do tweak the luminance and luminance detail sliders depending on the individual image.

Just curious.
Zig
