Chapter 10. Using Camera Raw > Finishing Touches

Finishing Touches

When you open your image in Photoshop, the settings you used will be saved. The next time you open the same RAW format image, Photoshop will remember the settings you used (it remembers all the settings except the ones related to workflow). If you'd rather just save the settings you currently have in the Camera Raw dialog box so that Photoshop will use them the next time you open the image, then hold down the Option key (Mac) or Alt key (Windows) and click the Update button (the OK button changes to Update when Option/Alt is held down). When you do that, Photoshop assumes that you want to attach those settings to your image instead of actually opening it in Photoshop. Updating images can be useful if you plan to use them with Actions or the choices found under the Automate menu in the File Browser.

If you'd rather not use the Camera Raw dialog box when opening a RAW image in Photoshop's regular File Browser, then try holding the Shift key when you open the image. That will bypass the Camera Raw dialog box, but will still use the Camera Raw settings you used the last time you opened the image, or it will use the default settings if you've never opened the image before.
