I processed some JPGs in Camera Raw and clicked the Done button. The changes seem to have been saved, as I can see in the thumbnail in Adobe Bridge.

Then I have placed the image in an InDesign file, but there the changes don't seem to have been saved. Do I have to choose the save button instead in Camera Raw to get the changes saved properly?

  • What format are you placing the images in? Are you placing CR files in Indesign or not sure?

  • Sorry i didn´t see your answer until now. Anyhow the files I placed in indesign are jpegs. But the problem is solved. I did open all the files in adobe bridge and did a save as which solved the problem. As I understand it when you choose done it doesnt change the image per se.

Done stores changes in the sidecar file (or metadata) but does not directly apply them to the image. (So you can come back later and further adjust before actually applying anything.)

Save applies the changes to the image.

The same is generally true for any Adobe dialog window with both a "done" and "save" button.

(Small tip.. you should never save a jpg as a jpg.)
