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.
This will be a brief but nonetheless important movie. Because here before we start to begin to work in Adobe Camera Raw, I want to share with you a valuable shortcut for navigating to the various panels. We know that we have these little tabs, and you can click on one of these tabs in order to access the panels and their controls. Well you can do this by clicking or you can do this by way of a very powerful and valuable shortcut, here it is. You want to write this one down.
On a Mac you press Opt+Cmd; on Windows you press Alt+Ctrl, then one of these numbers. In other words, if you want to go to the Basic panel, you can press Opt+Cmd or Alt+Ctrl and then the number 1. If you want to go to the Tone Curve panel, you just press that same shortcut except now, you use the number 2. So let me show you all of those again. The part of this shortcut that you're going to want to memorize is just this first part over here, Opt+Cmd for Mac or Alt+Ctrl for Windows.
You don't necessarily need to memorize all of these numbers, because what you can do is press those two keys on your keyboard, whatever your operating system is, and they go ahead and just start typing or tapping on the numbers. And eventually this will help you memorize which number is associated with which panel. And by using the shortcut, well it can just speed up your overall workflow by leaps and bounds.
