The editing guide on this website is really old. I've been using Adobe Camera RAW 7.1 and haven't had a photo approved yet. Is anyone willing to share their workflow for post-processing with the latest Adobe Camera RAW?

I agree I would like to see a workflow from someone also as I have yet to have an approved picture.

Pretty hard to do as settings will be optimized to each individual camera, lens, & users' taste. I use different settings for each of my bodies (and sometimes lenses), so while I can tell you what I use as one particular default setting, you would do best to use it only as a starting place, and fine tune for your own situation, and again for each scene. As an example, I find one camera needs extra sharpening, while another will have a slightly warmer hue to the colors that will be taken into account when adjusting the white balance, and then some lenses will need more specific adjustment to counteract chromatic aberration. And when it comes to white balance, I'll typically adjust the white balance for each individual scene, so while I have a default setting for wb (5100/0), that almost never ends up being the final setting before exporting.


White Balance
Temperature: 5100
Tint: 0

Exposure: 0.00
Recovery: 0
Fill Light: 0
Blacks: 5
Brightness: +50
Contrast: +45

Clarity: 0
Vibrance: 0
Saturation: 0

Amount: 50
Radius: 1.0
Detail: 25
Masking: 0

Noise Reduction
Luminance: 35
Color: 25

Again, it should be noted these are defaults only, and only for one particular camera of mine. The only other advice I can give is for here to generally stay away from things like fill light, clarity, vibrance, etc..., as they tend to introduce halos which will earn you an editing rejection. As always, the best editing is the smallest amount & simplest possible.
