    Batch Processing in Bridge / ACR

    Frank,

    To batch process in Bridge / Adobe Camera Raw, select your RAW images in Bridge (click on first image and shift/click on last image). Double click first image to open in ACR. From ACR apply your chosen settings. Then, on the top left of the ACR screen, you will see a button for select all. Click select all. Then click the syncronize button below. A new dialog box will appear which allows you to customize which adjustments you want applied to all the other images. Click okay. You will then be returned back to ACR. From there you can click done.

    If your shots were all under similar conditions, then a more universal batch process will work. If you're like me and tend to shoot multiple subjects under different lighting before downloading, then you might just want to batch process select settings, like sharpening, a basic contrast adjustment and a basic clarity adjustment. From there you can tweak the individual images.

    For those who use Lightroom, batch processing is simpler. Click on your first image, shift click on the last of the ones you want to process together. Click on the Develop tab; apply your adjustments (the first image will be shown), then click "Sync...". A dialog box will come up where you can select the adjustments to be applied to all your other images and click the Synchronize button.

    I tried doing it that way before but wasn't happy with how some images came out. That is why I processes each image separately. I know it takes longer. I don't like using the Auto WB and settings.

    Thanks

    You could try a neutral card like this

    Course you have to remember to use it.

    The DxO software is not renowned for its user interface, but you soon get used to it.

    I have the DxO Pro 6 Elite. I will give it a try. You cannot export to PS. I will post some edits with it.

    Here is the two RAW conversions one using Camera RAW the other using DxO. This is the first image I ever edited with DxO. I didn't do anything else but crop it. It is not the best image I shot this hand held with my 2x TC on my Tamrom 70-300.

    Frank, what can I say?
    The DxO looks cleaner, the CRAW is lighter and warmer but that can easily be changed in the settings.
    Which is closer to the original? you tell me.
    But a RAW converter is about much more than that and I can't tell anything from those small pics.
    Ease of use in getting the result you seek is important.

    This is a sparrow converted in DxO with resizing and sharpening done in PS.
    It looks pretty much as I remember it but...
    What say you?

    LOL That is not my sparrow. I know shat you are saying. It is confusing at first. I do like all the auto settings. I could not find any good tutorials on line. I will give it another try and see how it works. It makes a duplicate file unlike Camera RAW. I heard the newer one does HDR and has better noise reduction.


    Thanks
