The release candidate (RC) of Adobe Camera Raw 8.5 contains interesting improvements such as the ability to modify the mask of degraded filters and radial gradients with a brush, an option that many are looking forward to see incorporated into our workflow with Lightroom. As for fujistas news, an incorporation profile for TCL-X100 teleconverter is mentioned, as well as compatibility with Fuji Finepix S1 and solving a fault with development with RAW files from Fuji X-T1. Apparently, the photos in this camera run at high ISOs and the selected Dynamic Range 200% or 400% is displayed too bright when imported into Adobe.
This update fixes the problem for new pictures though, when installed, can lead to inconsistent results with images developed previously. That’s why the guys from Adobe recommend purging the Adobe Camera Raw cache through the preferences menu and thoroughly reviewing old photos to check mismatches and unanticipated exposure.
