OK, I can't find an answer but here is the question. I know that when you view a RAW file in whatever photo editor you are using, at some point the file is changed so that you can see it. But, there are also things like lens distortion, etc, that get changed as well at some point in the process. I know that some of these changes are specific to particular camera/lens combination. But how do you know when or where these are applied?
For example. In Apple Photos, if you bring in a RAW file, you can see where things like lens distortion, etc, are changed by clicking on the preview. When I do this with a Sony ARW from my NEX-5R, there is a very noticeable change on screen.
I don't see this change in PSE 2018. But I note that ACR shows that it knows this is a Sony NEX-5R. Has ACR already made that change when I opened the file? Or does it apply when I close the file and go to the Editor, for example. I don't see anything under the Camera Calibration section.
And I can't find an explanation elsewhere, so help would be appreciated.
