Make It Look Like You Thought It Would
*Adobe Bridge CS4 and Adobe Camera Raw 5 Tip*
Want your RAW images to look more like what you saw in your camera's LCD display? Then check out the new Camera Matching Profiles in the Camera Calibration tab of Camera Raw. They approximate the "looks" you can apply in camera. Camera Raw looks at your image's embedded EXIF data to determine whether you took the shot with a Nikon or Canon (so far, those are the only two camera brands it supports), and then it gives you a corresponding list of looks you can apply (these can help you get closer to the JPEG look). Just choose from the pop-up menu to begin (I recommend starting with the Adobe Standard Profile).
