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.
One of the advantages of working with Adobe Camera Raw is speed and efficiency. And so far we've taken a look at how we can open our RAW, JPG, and TIF files with Camera Raw, but here what I want to do is take a look at a little bit more of a realistic scenario which will help us to be more efficient when working with Camera Raw. Let's say that we have a RAW file like this one here and we open it up in Camera Raw by simply double-clicking. This will then launch Adobe Camera Raw. Next, what I am going to do is I am going to convert this to black-and-white by desaturating.
Now, this isn't the best conversion, but I am just going to do this to illustrate a point. Next, we'll click Done in order to apply these settings. Well, here back inside of Adobe Bridge I can see that I've already done work on this photograph, and a lot of times what you'll do is you'll do a lot of work on your pictures, you will then perhaps go to Photoshop or go to another application and eventually you will come back to a picture like this photograph here that we've already processed. And now what I want to do is just open this image up in Photoshop.
I don't want to re-see Adobe Camera Raw because I'm done with Adobe Camera Raw. Well, how can we then skip Camera Raw? Well, what you can do is you can hold down the Shift key, then if you Shift+double-click on your RAW file, it will completely skip Camera Raw, whether it's a JPG or a TIF or a RAW file, and it will then go straight to Photoshop. And I find that by using the shortcut, it can really help speed up your overall workflow so that you can take advantage of all the work you've done in Camera Raw, but then when needed, you can skip that step so that those settings will be applied and so that you can then take that image directly to Photoshop.
