N.S.L: WEEK 119 – Adobe Camera RAW CC: “Interactive Histogram and Radial Filter”

New Feature that I REALLY wanted in Adobe Camera Raw 8.2 in Photoshop CC (v14.1).

I was at a Photoshop Cafe event in Hollywood when I learned that the Histogram in ACR is Interactive.

Why is this such a big deal? It’s a feature that I would always bring up as a Feature Request anytime I’d get to talking nerdy with my Photoshop homies. You can see it in action in this short video:

The Develop Module in LightRoom was basically the same as ACR . I would usually mention that the biggest difference is that you can’t drag the Histogram =D In some cases, that feature was the only reason I would launch LightRoom. Thank you Adobe for bringing it in to ACR so it matches LightRoom.

They also brought in the Radial Filter. This thing is great! I’m sure there’s tons of uses for it, but I like using it to add focus like a vignette. I know there’s already a vignette feature, but it only goes to the center. With the Radial Filter you can off-set it to any location.

I got all of my info from:

If you look up #NSL119 you should be able to follow my week, all of the videos I studied for this one, and other Tweets related to this post. Images looked best on FireFox when this post was created.

  1. The ability to adjust the histogram like that is amazing! I took a course on Camera Raw last year and I’m hooked! It’s amazing how much you can ‘fix’ poor photography.

    • I love it! Most people need ACR but go straight to Ps. I like ACR because it’s basically the develop module that you find inside of Lightroom. Thanks for checking out the post
