    I got my PS CS2 today.

    With the default auto all crap on, for most photos, it suggests me to lower my exposure by -1.5 EV and then pushes the gamma (brightness) all the way to 120 to compensate for it.

    What is wrong? Why does it think my meter over-exposed 1.5 stops?

  4. Anand,

    I guess you're gonna give ACR another try then w/ v3.0. I recall you eventually gave up on v2.x a while back -- and then went w/ RAWMagick instead. :D

    Since I refuse to upgrade to CS2, I'm stuck w/ v2.x. Oh well, might as well since someone was very generous to give me his license of NC for free after he lost his D70. NC maybe slower, but seems to work fine for me even for batch processing files. I haven't batched quite that many, so it hasn't crashed on me yet(?).

    I get CS thru an employee discount, so it does not bite me much.

    I tried to use ACR again and now am really not satisfied.

    I toggle between NC and RM. NC works for 90% of photos (quick run) and for the rest I spend my time with RM.

    I have to check what lightbox factory does in RM and how to batch using RM.

    I regularly batch a few dozen photos (birthdays etc) through NC and works like a charm.

    I should tell that NC has never crashed for me.
