my photos don't look as good when pp'd with ACR and PSE5. Why is it that when I open an image in Capture, it looks so much better than in ACR. Is it because it applies the in camera settings to the NEF file and ACR does not? Also, when I do my base adjustments in Capture, save as a .jpg, open in PSE to do defog, additional editing and USM, the result is not as nice as doing defog and USM in Capture even though I am using the same parameters. Capture is terribly slow and upgrading my computer is not an option at this time. I would really like to get the same results using ACR and PSE or possibly Lightroom which I am considering. Can anyone explain to me why I would be getting such different results? I can post an example with the workflow if that would help. Thanks!
