Before we begin our work in this course, I wanted to highlight a subtle, but none the less significant, change in how we view our previews as we're working on our photographs in Camera Raw. We'll be working with this photograph here, it's a portrait I captured of Lynda, the founder of lynda.com. And with this image I want to desaturate it, and convert it to black and white. To do that I'll work with my saturation slider, and click and drag this slider to the left. Now in the previous versions of Camera Raw there was a preview check box, which was located in this area of the interface.
Well on the most recent version of Camera Raw, at least at the time that I'm recording this movie, that preview check box has been removed. So if ever you hear reference to the preview check box don't be dismayed. You can always view your before and after preview by simply pressing the P key. Tap the P key once, that will show you the before, tap the P key a second time and you'll see the after. Also, in the latest version of Camera Raw, we can view our previews in some other interesting ways as well.
If you look in the lower right hand corner of the dialog here, we have a button which we can click on right here. When we click on this button it gives us different options for viewing the before and after. Let's try this one. Before and After, Left to Right. When we select that option, we can see the original image as it appeared, and then after we worked on it in Camera Raw. After having viewed the photograph this way to go back to the single view, simply click on the icon again, and click and hold. And then choose this option, Single View, and that will take you back to the single view of your photograph.
