In Photoshop CS5 for Photographers: Camera Raw 6, Chris Orwig provides in-depth training on Camera Raw 6, the CS5 component that enables photographers to open and manipulate images in non-destructive and now even more efficient ways. This course covers the benefits of the raw processing, which makes it possible to more precisely control an image's appearance—exposure, shadow and highlight detail, color balance, sharpness, and more—including new workflow procedures and technical concepts and issues. Learn the entire Camera Raw workflow, from opening and resizing, toning and cropping, to sharpening and saving. Exercise files are included with the course.
Here I want to provide you with one more example of how we can work with lens vignetting, and also share with you a shortcut that can sometimes speed up your work when you are working on this area of the image. Well, here we are inside of the Lens Corrections panel. We can access that by clicking on this icon here. Let's say that what I want to do is I want to work on Lens Vignetting Amount, and I want to remove the Vignette here in this photograph of my daughter Annika. One of the things that I can do is I can target the amount by clicking on this here, but once this area is active, or once I have clicked into this field here, what I can do is press the Up or Down Arrow keys in order to increase or decrease this amount.
Now as I press the Up Arrow key, it's moving one point at a time. That's going to take me quite a while to add that much vignetting. Well, to add more, hold down the Shift key, then the Up Arrow, and here you can see it's going in 10-point increments or press the Down Arrow key, and same thing. It will move up and down that way. Let's say we then we want to change the Midpoint. We'll press the Tab key in order to select or target the next field, and then again, Shift+Up Arrow or Shift+Down Arrow will move this in a little bit larger increments, so that you can get this just right.
Finally, to look at our before and after, we will press that P key. Here we have it, before and then after, a really simple, yet significant correction made with those Lens Vignetting controls.
