Chapter 5. It's All About the Workflow > Key Preference Settings

Key Preference Settings

Four key preference settings will help your work go smoothly, one set in Camera Raw, the others in the File Browser. My advice is to set 'em and forget 'em, because it's extremely unlikely that you'll ever want to change them. Just remember to check them in the event that you're forced to do a clean installation of either your OS or Photoshop, because either one may trash the preferences.

Camera Raw Preferences

Open a raw image to launch Camera Raw. Make sure that the Advanced radio button is set, then choose Preferences from the Camera Raw menu and make sure that your Camera Raw Preferences are set to “Save image settings in sidecar “.xmp” files”—see Figure 5-1.
