Red strange shadows in the portrait of backit in the ACR - but ok in ViewNX

I've recently been ships consisting of a D300 using ACR without any problem. Until...

This photo has some very strange red shadows when they are imported using ACR5.5. But when using the Nikon ViewNX 1.4.0 that they seem perfectly ok. I also tried to use ACR4.x (the one distributed with PE6) and it's just the same as 5.5. The entire batch of photos taken using this lighting system show the problem. I was using a Dlte2 on minimum power behind the subject, pointing to the camera and the reflectors on the sides. The camera is to use the AdobeRGB space.

The problem is most visible under her chin to the right of his hand and the hair just right there.

I would be really grateful to all points of view as to why it seems so "badly" in ACR but looks good in viewNX and behind closed doors. And how can I do this processing...

Thank you very much


Your shadows are clipping in ACR value 5 by default. Drag the black slider to zero should solve the problem.

  • Strange shadows on the Sierra of the Mac OS on an external monitor

    After upgrading to Mac OS Sierra, I noticed that there are these strange shadows. It of almost like the gradient of a shadow is not fluid and smooth:

    Screenshots: DL = 0 DL = 0

    Is this normal, or is there a problem? Recommend a fix?

    I'm on Mac mini (mid-2011) and a screen LCD Dell UltraSharp U2913WM 29 inches.

    ... However, if the screenshots are picking up, it seems less like a problem of monitor and more like an incompatibility of graphics cards with MacOS Sierra?

    This seems to be quite normal. The windows are translucent, and what I see, this is the result of the image behind the window.

    It was the same thing in El Capitan (and, I suppose, Yosemite, as well).

  • The drop shadow layer style angle setting back to default when reloaded into the new file

    My question is how do to prevent the following occurs. I created a shadow layer style in a file .psd with the parameters below.

    Screen Shot 2013-03-27 at 12.50.03 PM.png

    I saved it in a file .asl I could use later. When I loaded it in a different .psd file later that day there, some parameters have remained the same, but the angle back to 30 degrees to 120 degrees all on its own, as shown below.

    Screen Shot 2013-03-27 at 12.50.15 PM.png

    I just want to know how to keep the layer style settings I recorded in a file .asl return parameters when loading in a new .psd file.

    My systems settings are as follows:

    Photoshop CS6 extended Version 13.0 x 64

    Mac OSX 10.8.2 with 705,44 Go off 749,3 GB available

    The only other software I am running is Safari web browser

    This is my first time trying to save a layer style and use it in a .psd file different than the one I created in.

    Kind regards

    Nikki Gutierrez

    First thing you should do is update photoshop help > updates in in photoshop cs6, as many bugs have been fixed and your always on 13.0

    (not that your description is a bug, but version 13.0 had a lot of glitches that will drive you crazy when you meet one)

    Also, overall lighting can be different from one document to the other as you use global light selected in the drop shadow dialog box

    Layer > layer Style > Global light > corner

    See if uncheck Use Global light makes all the difference

  • Question of strange shadows fall: only appears when you drag on the artboard

    I applied a soft shadow silver drop white to an image placed on a piece of Illustrator.  The shadow only appears when I drag the selection on the artboard (in the gray area that surrounds the artboard).  Drag on the piece and without shadow.  Make sure the image is presented front and background sent to the rear. STILL NOTHING.

    Thoughts?  This photo is not the best but you can kind of see how the soft white shadow stops abruptly on the black background on the edge of the artboard.


    Check the settings on your shadow.

  • Shadow has the color of the background

    I really need help that this assignment is due in a few days and I can't understand what is wrong.

    I made a page with objects that had brought on a custom background shadows. I was criticized by my professor to lighten the color of the background, but I had already flattened in a single layer. So I removed it with the intention of recreating a similar context. However when I put it behind the objects already here, the shadows of each object by default the color of the background. If I hide the background they come back to black. I have no idea how it happened. If I change the color of the shadow, he mixes with the color of the background. E.g. I have a yellow background. I changed the drop shadow to the red, and it's a shade of orange.

    I use Photoshop CS6 on a 2010 MacBook Pro running OS X El Capitan.

    What is the mode of fusion for shadows? And opacity? These two things will allow the future background with the color of the shadow.

  • Tecra S2: strange dots on the screen that appears without reason and randomly


    I have a laptop Toshiba Tecra S2 for almost a year now.
    I formatted 2 months ago and when I did it. I had strange spots on my screen, appearing without reason and at random. I have not the slightest idea where it came from and I tried to format my computer again.
    I installed the latest driver chipset on the site of intel, and then I installed the latest driver on the toshiba site.

    I noticed that the problem is back. so that solves nothing. What can I do about it?

    PS, not only the points, but I can't play too.

    HI Jelle,

    When you say that you have formatted your laptop, you completely re - install the operating system from the recovery discs? If you did then the display should work fine.

    If you have installed the Microsoft disk operating system, you will need to download the correct drivers from Toshiba for your Tecra from Toshiba download page web site.

    Kind regards

  • IMac 27, making a strange noise in the rear lower left

    A few days ago that my Imac is strange a hum, which last usually 1 or 2 hours after I turn it on, then abruptly stopped. I tried all these things without permanent result:

    2 reset the PRAM and NVRAM

    3. clean the vents

    4. store any electrical device that might make the interference.

    Thanks in advance!


    IMac 27 inches, model 2012 late has some elements that could make a noise in the section at the bottom left of the material.  Your steps so far have helped to understand what is happening!  There are a set of speaker on the lower left side of the computer, but also a hard drive Assembly.  Don't forget to back up your information as soon as possible in which case it is the last. If the problem persists when starting Internet recovery (computer turn off power then back on holding Cmd + Option + R), you can confirm that it is actually a hardware problem and will have to bring the service unit.

  • strange slowdown after the updates today

    noticed a strange delay after the system starts. The system booted and the office appeared in a timely way (30-40 seconds)
    as he always does.  I uninstalled my antivirus while this problem.  (Avast from Add/Remove programs
    and usefulness clear for good measure).

    Here's what's happening.  AprΦs dΘmarrage, logon and the desktop appears, the warning that no AV is installed
    (from Security Center?) takes a full 90 seconds for it to appear.   In addition, during those 90 seconds, Outlook Express cannot
    to complete it's search for new messages and a manual to open the Security Center fails.

    After 90 seconds, everything started to work... Is something delay?  Certain services having a problem starting?
    Thanks in advance for any help.


    EDIT - I investigated further after that I posted above.
    Apparently, this problem is caused by the Microsoft.Net Framework 4.
    Open the CMD prompt, navigate to \WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319
    and by running the command
    NGEN executequeueditems
    the system spends ten minutes compiling some objects.
    Finally, you get a message saying that 'all compilation targets are up-to-date.

    Rebooted the system and startup is back to normal. Access to the network and the opening of
    Delays in Security Center disappeared.


    I'm happy to hear that you were able to solve the problem and thanks for letting us share the resolution. Let us know if face you any problems with Windows in the future.

  • Strange behavior of the CAM Table SG300-28

    We have two switches SG300-38, both set to update to the latest firmware ( and the two experience a strange problem in the MAC address Table. It seems that switches cannot learn the mac address, or forget too quickly learned in MACs.

    The switches have a very basic, just configuration of VLAN, but the problem is constant in all the VLANS. Whenever we start a file transfer, we can see (and we have confirmed with packet capture) traffic is flooded among all other ports.

    To test it, we added a few MACs static, and the traffic to these Mac works correctly.

    Please, can I do to stop this behavior? It seems that we have gone back to the time of the Hub!


    This firmware fixed some issues with the MAC address tables. Factory reset switch and reconfigure and test it. I've seen a few problems when upgrading to the latest fabless switches - 10% of cases have to factory reset reset.
