It's great now to have access to Camera Raw as filter.

But it will be PERFECT to have the filter as a adjustment layer.

Adjustment layers have restrictions on what they can do -- they can only change the color of a pixel, they cannot perform filter operations (that require input from surrounding pixels).

So filters generally cannot be used as adjustment layers.

And Photoshop already has smart filters to enable re-editability of filters.

I know that could be use as smart filter but it wouldn't be as fast as a adjustment layer.

That's a shame, it would be great to have as adjustment layer at least some ACR panels like Basic, HSL or Effects.

thanks anyway! x)

There are already existing adjustment layers in Photoshop to do those adjustments.

Levels, Exposure, Hue/Saturation, etc.
