.dng changes don't show
« on: November 23, 2007, 05:34:14 PM »
Is there a way to have the changes you make to a .dng file be shown in a contact sheet?  For example, I've just changed a file from color to B&W.  The contact sheet doesn't reflect these changes even after hitting refresh....

You'll have to get whatever software you used to adjust the DNG file to update its embedded preview data.

Not sure how to do that?  If I adjust an image i ACR and then open PM, I don't see the changes.  In ACR is there an option for this feature?

While I'm not an ACR user, I did a quick Google search and found the following comment:

"You have to tell ACR to update the DNG preview if you make changes and you want them to show in an external program like MediaPro. There's a check box in the ACR options to allow this."

Here is a link to the thread:

Um, I couldn't figure this out/find the check box...  This is a bummer because to email an image to a client with the changes made to a dng means I need to use another program to do so, or save the image as a jpeg and then send...
