The camera raw converter functionality in Adobe Photoshop software provides fast and easy access to the raw image formats produced by many leading professional and midrange digital cameras. By working with these "digital negatives," you can achieve the results you want with greater artistic control and flexibility while still maintaining the original raw files. Enter your state here The Adobe Camera Raw plug-in became the latest must-have tool for professional photographers when it was released in February 2003. This powerful plug-in has been frequently updated to support more cameras and include more features and is available as part of Adobe Photoshop CS6. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom software is built upon the same powerful raw processing technology that is available in the Camera Raw plug-in.
The Camera Raw plug-in now also supports raw files in Digital Negative (DNG) format. Find out more about the benefits of DNG, a raw file format made available to the public by Adobe.

What's New 11.4.1:
Enhanced GPU support for accelerated image editing
GPU acceleration speeds up image processing most noticeably for photos with several adjustments and for high resolution monitors (4K and higher). You can enable the new GPU acceleration features on supported systems in the Performance tab of Camera Raw Preferences. On some computers the feature is enabled automatically. To know more, see GPU FAQ and troubleshooting.
Edge aware editing in 360-degree panoramas
Previously, when making adjustments to a 360-degree panorama it could result in a seam appearing around the merged edges, especially if you edit Clarity or Dehaze. Starting with this release, you can make seamless edits to 360-degree panoramas, even when adjusting Clarity or Dehaze. This feature is currently not supported in the Camera Raw filter in Photoshop.

Adobe Camera Raw 10.3 includes a new profiles feature and new Adobe Raw profiles. In addition, the release adds support for new cameras and lenses and fixes several issues.
Adobe Raw and creative profiles
- Profiles allow you to control how colors and tonality are rendered in your images. The profiles are intended to serve as a starting point or foundation for making image edits.
For raw photos, you can choose one of the Adobe Raw profiles to get greater editing control with one-click profiles. These profiles are designed for color photos, monochromes, portraits, landscapes, and more.
For both raw and non-raw photos, you can create a unique style or effect in your photo by choosing any of the creative profiles grouped under Artistic, B&W, Modern, and Vintage.
Applying a profile on your photo doesn't change or overwrite the value of other edit control sliders. Therefore, you can make edits to your photos as you like and then choose to apply a profile on top of your edited image.
