Anyone try the new 'Texture' silder in Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom?

  1. Anyone try the new 'Texture' silder in Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom? These aren't the best example, but I find I can increase the clarity slider, without getting too gritty by toning back the texture slider. Probably works better for portraits, but I wanted to see how it works for other types of scenes!

    I have not yet tried it, but from what I have seen the idea is the exact opposite, i.e. you can decrease the Clarity slider and increase the Texture slider, giving a more natural result.
     
  3. I tried it both ways, definitely prefer the texture down, and clarity up.
     
  4. Capture One has a Structure slider that works similarly to the LR Texture slider. Negative structure helps smooth skin. Positive structure provides more detail akin to sharpening, but with a more natural look.

    Very similar to the Clarity slider. To the right improves fine detail/contrast. To the left softens.....
     
  6. DXO has some very good micro adjustments for skin and texture. My usual workflow for portraits had me process raws through ACR and then finish off the images in DXO Filmpack. With the new texture slider, I might be able to skip using Filmpack altogether, but I need to shoot some portrait work to verify.
