This course provides in-depth training on Camera Raw 7, the Photoshop CS6 component that enables photographers to open and manipulate raw format images. Raw images are minimally processed in the camera; they're effectively the exact data recorded by the camera's sensor. Author Chris Orwig shows you how to control a raw image's appearance—exposure, shadow and highlight detail, color balance, and sharpness—with far more precision than is possible with JPEG images. The course also introduces the new workflow procedures and technical concepts and issues associated with raw content, so that photographers can best leverage this powerful format.
Now that we have a good working understanding of some of the essentials when it comes to Color Temperature and Color Correction, let's go ahead and work on these two photographs. Here we are going to take a look at how we can work on these two photographs and how we can color-correct a picture which has something which is neutral in it and then how we can apply those settings to another photograph that doesn't have this Color Checker Chart in it. So select both files by holding down the Cmd key, then press Cmd+R in a Mac or Ctrl+R in Windows to open up these files in Camera Raw.
This little device is called the Color Checker Chart, it's a phenomenal tool. What you can do is you can take a picture with the subject holding this. In this case the subject, he just got off this huge bike ride, it was raining, and we're trying to capture an image that had a bit of that essence. So he held the Color Checker Chart and all that we need to do is to use our Eyedropper tool and to click on something that we know is neutral. In this case we can click on these little color chips here that you can see in this chart. Next after having applied that you can choose Select All and then Synchronize.
In this way what we want to synchronize is just the White Balance, so from the Settings pull-down menu we'll choose White Balance and then click OK. In doing that we can then navigate to the other photograph and you can see that this one is now color correct. Here it is, there is our before and then I'll press the P key and then there is the after. And by using this particular approach what you can do, is you can use a neutral reference card, say like this Color Checker passport, you can take one picture in a certain lighting scenario and then you can Color Correct that image and then apply the White Balance settings to all of the other images that were captured in those same lighting conditions.
