Discover the power and depth of Adobe Photoshop and take advantage of its new tools and improvements, notably the recent versions of the Camera RAW plug-in. The Camera RAW plug-in can fully edit 16-bit files, which hold considerably more tonal and color information than 8-bit files. This allows for greatly enhanced controls and substantially improved quality for digital photographs. Current versions of Camera RAW can apply a wide range of color and tonal enhancements over the entire image or on selected areas. This session covers making RAW images with your camera and examines the many versatile and powerful controls available for processing your images in Camera RAW, managing them in Bridge, and saving them as 16-bit files. Recent versions of Camera RAW can also edit both jpg and tif files, and is becoming an important new interface in image processing. Find out how to take full advantage of these tools and improvements.
For Lightroom users, the Camera RAW plug-in and the Develop module in Lightroom are equivalent, with the same tools and controls.
If you wish to work on your images during class (class files are provided otherwise), please bring up to five RAW image files on a CD or thumb drive.
