    So I've learned a little bit about RAW, and now I'm back with more questions. Attached are jpegs of the same RAW file processed in Lightroom (left) and Canon's suite that came with the camera. Canon obviously knows better how to interpret the RAW data, and the resulting image is more accurate to what I remember. My question is, how do I keep working in Lightroom knowing that whatever images I'm seeing are inaccurate? Also, is there a way to calibrate Adobe Camera RAW so things show up more accurately?

    Lightroom will apply some auto adjustments to images based on your camera when you import. You can turn this off in the preferences.

    For example, when I import a file from my 20d, lightroom applies an automatic brightness of +50 and contast of +25. I personally like the auto adjustment for 90% of what I do, but I could turn it off in preferences if I chose to.

    Maybe I'm stupid, but I don't know where those settings are. The following images show the current settings.
