    just fyi:

    "Adobe has today released v3.2 of the Camera Raw plug-in for Photoshop CS2.
    The new version adds official support for the Nikon D2Hs, D70s and D50, as
    well as Leica's Digital-Modul-R back and the Hasselblad H2D (the latter two
    are capable of writing RAW files in Adobe's DNG RAW format).

    In addition, D2X owners will notice that Camera Raw now fully honours the As
    Shot white balance (WB), owing to the inclusion of code supplied by Nikon to
    interpret the encoded WB information in D2X NEF files. NEF files from the
    newly-supported D2Hs and D50 will display correct As Shot WB also, thanks to
    the "mini-SDK" that has been furnished to Adobe by Nikon.

    The Mac and Windows download links for both Camera Raw 3.2 and DNG Converter
    3.2 are on the Camera Raw page of Adobe's web site"



    rock on - sid

    Any chance of someone knowing a phone number for Adobe. Trying to
    download Camera Raw 3.2 it asks me to register. When I put in my
    e-mail and normal password it comes back as not registered. When I try
    a new registration it tells me that my e-mail is in use. When I apply
    for lost password...zilch. Thanks

    Easiest thing to do would be to create a new webmail address (with
    hotmail,, etc.) and re-register.

    That's an idea. I have this one. I also have a Registered, legitimate
    copy of Photoshop CS2 in my real e-mail. Do you think the new registry
    is just marketing bs or connected to the real software? I'll give it a
    try to see if I can get the software. (I have a D50 and have been
    waiting for this upgrade) But hope I don't mess up future updates.
    Any ideas on how tied to the legitimate software and ID the updates are?

    I have used ACR that comes with CS. On night shots, I have found that
    DXO and CaptureOne are clearly superior in terms of noise reduction and
    other artifacts (on a 20D image shot at ISO1600). Does any one know if
    the version in CS2 is better in this regard, or is it all workflow

  7. I don't know that ACR claims to effect noise. I think it does what it is
    supposed to do...put as much information accurately in the file....noise is
    part of the accuracy. Deal with that in Photoshop.

    Well, it has controls labeled "Luminance smoothing" and
    "Color noise reduction" so I'd be surprised if it's not
    claiming to reduce noise ;-)

    It does a lot more behind the scenes - it removes hot
    pixels, it even removes certain "pattern" noises that some
    cameras can produce (so called "diagonal noise" in the KM A2
    for example). These are features of ACR that go unnoticed -
    until you use a different converter that doesn't offer them.

  9. It does a lot more behind the scenes - it removes hot

    I stand corrected. I made decisions when I got ARC that I would rather do
    most of that in Photoshop and have not revisited those other controls for
    quite awhile. Maybe I should do I have any spare time. We can't
    afford to rest on our laurels in this business.
