Many cameras can save photos in raw format, and it's the best way to capture all the data the sensor is capable of recording. Learn how to use Adobe Lightroom and Camera Raw (included with Photoshop) to bring out the best in these kinds of photos.

In this course, Photoshop senior product manager Bryan O'Neil Hughes explores the art and science of raw-format processing in both Camera Raw and Lightroom. First, take a look at working with raw-format photos in Lightroom, and using the Develop module to improve contrast, color, and tone, which make the details in your images pop.

Then switch over to Camera Raw to optimize raw-format images as well as video. Bryan also draws important comparisons between Camera Raw 8 and Lightroom 5, and shows ways to employ Camera Raw as a filter to layers or Smart Objects in Photoshop CC.
