After using ACRaw, is there a way to pass the pointed color classifed (1,2,3,...) to the same tool on photoshop?
This is logic and it would help me a lot.
May be creating an adobe script?

What do you mean by "pointed color classified"? That doesn't match the terminology in Photoshop or ACR.

In CameraRaw is the numbered color picker (see image) and I would like to keep that when opened in photoshop (in photoshop I could use the counter tool).
My aim is to read the X,Y place of the point marked before in ACRaw and use it to make automatica racio crops by adding a special script.
This would help me a loooot!


Sorry about name I gave to the tool before, but I use portuguese photoshop :-)

The color sampler information is not written to the xmp file, so no this information will not be available. If you close and open the same document in ACR you will see that this information is not retained.
If the values you want are less than 100 (or use different colours as a multiplier) you could set a couple of the colours in Hue, Saturation or Luminance to the values you require. Then you could read the values and then reset them to the correct values.

Yeah, the settings for the color samplers in ACR aren't exported in any way that I can find -- which means we can't get them into Photoshop.
