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 just a simple example of how we can work with Color and Tone. A lot of times in the Basic panel, we'll begin to work with our Exposure, perhaps add some Fill Light and Brightness and maybe a little bit of Contrast. We'll make our ways through these controls just looking to try to improve the image. Now, in this case, we did indeed improve the Contrast and Tone and a little bit of Saturation. Here we have our before and then after. One of the things that we want to do a lot of times is after we've dialed in these settings, is to then go back to some of our other controls like, for example, Temperature and Tint.
Here if I go ahead and simply just bring in a little bit of warmth to the file, it can really change the overall mood to this particular image. Now once I've done that, I of course, can go back and perhaps brighten it even more, add a little bit more Contrast, or perhaps a little bit less in this case might look actually better now that I'm looking at it. All right. Well, I think that looks pretty good. Let's look at our before and after now. Here we have a before and then after. A really simple example, but nonetheless an example which shows how we can start to put together these different pieces in order to come up with even better Color and Tone.
