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.
Last but not least, I want to take a look at how we can get creative and how we can come up with some creative color combinations while using Vibrance and Saturation. With this picture one of the things that we know that we can do, is we can reduce some of the weaker colors. We could do that by dragging the Vibrance to the left. Next, we could boost the colors that remain by dragging the Saturation to the right. Now just by making that simple adjustment, we have this really curious kind of color combination, then we could take it further.
What if we were to modify our overall Temperature slider here, here you can see how I'm changing that. I could then dial in a certain amount of Contrast, I could also increase my Clarity and now I've this kind of, surreal pastel dream like color palette, here it is, here is before and then after. And by doing this, by changing these amounts, we can come up with some curious and sometimes creative or just a little bit different color palettes. Let's look at one more photograph, this one here, Santa Barbara Harbor.
With this image I love the warm in the cool tones. Except, I want to bring out a little bit more of the warm. In doing so, I'll bring the Temperature slider to the right. The problem is, that removed a lot of my Blue or you can bring that back by cranking up some of our Vibrance here, that helps out some of those weaker or less Saturated colors. And then we will add some overall Saturation, and all that this does for us, is again, just gives us a certain color feel with this image. Here now is our before and then after, bringing out some of those different tones that we've here.
I might take this back just a little bit to bring out even a bit more of the Blues and also increase this. In this case, we've come up with some creative color options for this image, here is before and then here's after, and we've done so by using these controls. And I wanted to include this last movie just to get you thinking about how you can use these controls, both for functional and also creative purposes.
