ACR Filter in Photoshop missing feature.

I find ACR a great tool, and was more than pleased to see it was added as a filter to Photoshop. But when invoked from Photoshop not all the features are there. Namely the straighten feature, so could this please be added, would help with productivity as well as maintaining the full functionality of ACR

Cheers

Some functionally can only be applied to raw data.

You can straighten images using the Transform tool features. It got split in one of the recent updates moving it out of Lens Correction. It no longer looks like a "level" but you can accomplish the same thing by drawing the straight edges you want to level against, or use the grid features.

Thanks I did try this and yes it does work, but not as intuitive as the "level" and takes an extra step by having to draw two lines instead of one.   Nice image by the way :)

The Crop and Straighten (Ruler [under the Eyedropper tool] + Image / Rotate / Arbitrary) functions are part of the regular PS UI so they weren't duplicated in the CR Filter, I guess.

Along the same line, the Camera Profiles & Lens Profiles aren't available in the CR Filter. I know there's a Lens Correction in PS, but not Camera Profiles or am I overlooking something?

A file in PS is not a raw file, anymore.  Camera Profiles and most Lens Profiles are for raw files.   You can use the Lens Correction filter in PS and access at least some if not all the lens profiles.

Be very careful when using either Lens Profiles (and especially Vignetting) in automatic mode because they do adversely affect both lens resolution and image micro-contrast and very few images need this sort of correction (and certainly not at the level provided by Auto!).

Either save your own Default levels (setting them to use the least amount of correction needed for each lens); or disable their use entirely.
