Version 8.2 of Camera Raw (for Photoshop CS6 and CC) and the DNG convertor contain the following enhancements and bug fixes (from the release notes).

New Features in Camera Raw 8.2:

  • The Histogram is now interactive. This enables the ability to click and drag on the Histogram to adjust the Blacks, Shadows, Exposure, Highlights, and Whites sliders.

  • Workflow presets are now available and can be selected by context-clicking the workflow link.
  • Presets have been added to the Save dialog box.
  • Auto Exposure has been improved to be more consistent across images and across different image sizes.
  • Refinements to the Spot Healing Tool:
    • New Feather control
    • Auto find source method now works better for images with textured areas like rocks, bark, and foliage
    • Auto find source method now prefers source areas within the crop rectangle
  • Refinements to the Local Adjustment Brush:
    • Move brush adjustments by clicking and dragging on brush adjustment pins
    • Right Click (PC) / Control-click (Mac) on a brush adjustment pin to bring up a context menu to duplicate or delete

Bugs Corrected in Camera Raw 8.2

  • JPEG decoding produced a red color cast.
  • Bridge always recomputed cropped image thumbnails when lens profile corrections are enabled rather than when necessary.
  • Feathering for healing brush operations were not the same strength as feathering for circular spot removals.
  • When selecting and adjusting multiple images, the Crop adjustment was not applied to the most selected image.
  • Local adjustment brush pin were not redrawing properly after moving from one location to another.
  • When using Camera Raw as a Filter in Photoshop CC, pressing the “Cancel” button on a Smart Object would rest the Smart Object to default settings.
  • There was no visual for the Heads-Up Display when control-dragging to resize a healing brush.  This only occurred when the “Show Overlay” option is turned off.
