This course explores the newest version of Photoshop from a photographer's perspective—helping users of previous versions of Photoshop make upgrade decisions and get up to speed with CS6. Author Chris Orwig covers the improvements to Camera Raw, including the improved exposure controls, Adjustment Brush tool, and Lens Correction filter. He then addresses the enhancements in Photoshop, such as the new Layer panel behavior, which makes renaming and organizing layers almost effortless, and image-editing features like content-aware retouching, photorealistic blur effects, and redefined nondestructive cropping; plus the brand-new ability to edit video in Photoshop. The final chapter addresses the new Creative Cloud subscription option, detailing features of interest to photographers: the enhanced Blur Gallery and Liquify filters, conditional actions, and improvements to the Crop tool.
This will be a quick movie as we briefly take a look at how we can use lens corrections in order to correct different parts of our image. In particular, I want to focus in on chromatic aberration, or that color fringing that you see in your images sometimes. Let's go ahead and open this file up in Camera RAW, press Command+R on a Mac, Ctrl+R on Windows. Next, what I want to do is navigate to the Lens Corrections tab. You can do so by clicking on this icon here. Now one of the things that's great about Lens Corrections is that it allows you to choose this option which enables the Lens Profile Corrections.
It taps into this database, figures out your camera and your lens combination, and then tries to make any needed adjustments. And here you can see it did a pretty good job. Here is our before and then our after. And if I select the Zoom tool and go ahead and zoom on in on one of these areas--say, around the edge of the photograph-- you can see that I have this real distinct problem. I have this color fringing. It's red on one side, cyan on another. In the previous version of Adobe Camera RAW, we had controls in order to dial away the chromatic aberration.
Well, in this version it's gotten a lot better. Now we only have a check box, and in order to remove the chromatic aberration-- literally all that we need to do is to click on that check box, and now it's gone. It's taken care of. In other words, it's taken out the guess work so that we no longer need to use these sliders. It's doing all of this for us behind the scenes. And this is yet another example of how the Camera RAW engine--well, it's just gotten better. So as you work with your photographs, be sure to turn this option on so that you can take advantage of that new way to process and to clean up your photographs.
After you've made that adjustment, you'll want to double-click, perhaps, the Hand tool to zoom out just to evaluate the image in its entirety. Take a look at your preview. Here is our before and after. The image is now in a much better place.
