just read this in popphoto. this is how you get rid of the default settings in ACR.
open ''camera raw'' with any image > take the check out of all the auto boxes.

next clik the curves tab and select linear from the drop down menu. this gets rid of any auto contrast adjustments.

oops, i forgot a step. go to the ''detail'' tab and reduce all the settings to 0.
no more ''auto'' anything.

I gotta try this. I tried something similar but without setting everything to zero out the adjustments. I did use the "set new camera raw defaults" but the next time I opened a picture it had gone back to their own presets. Must have done something else wrong - I only occasionally use their auto adjustment setting. I'll be glad when they finally release Lightroom.

i've been using it today and have to say it's great starting completely from scratch.. it makes you look at the image. with the auto's set as they were was horrible. problem was that i would leave some of them at auto because it was easy to do. i just found a lot of pelican pix and will post them later. hope you enjoy the new settings.

edit: i did go back and set the shawdows and brightness to 0 also.

Roy,

That also works if you have a set of photos that are out of the ordinary, you can adjust one to your satisfaction in ACR and then save those as the new defaults.

That way all the rest of your photos will be adjusted the same way as you open them up, so you won't have to do much adjusting on the rest of the set.
