Beginning with a review of the module's tools and features, author Chris Orwig guides you, step by step, through detailed adjustments such as changing color temperature, correcting white balance, and fixing under- and overexposure problems. Find out how to improve images through clarity adjustments, as well as how to convert color images into black and white. Lastly, see how to save time by synchronizing your adjustments across multiple images, setting up and using custom presets, and working with virtual copies.
