Arguments For and Against Auto Correction

The auto functions built into many of today's RAW converters have advantages and disadvantages, but we generally avoid using them.

The main advantage is that auto settings quickly produce generally usable images that you can either apply directly or as a basis for further corrections.

The disadvantage is that the algorithms that drive auto functions cannot be adjusted and sometimes produce results that don't suit the image purpose at all. For this reason, we usually deactivate ACR's auto correct functionality (page 158).
