Let's grab our image of the car here and we've done a bunch of work with the Basic…panel and with some of the deeper tonal controls.…If your image doesn't look like this you can go ahead and just add our black and…white preset. And let's collapse this.…We'll collapse the one's we've already used.…And we want to talk about detail. So let's start by talking about sharpening.…Sharpening is one of those things where I absolutely recommend you do not sharpen in-camera.…It's a very destructive process, and the sharpening technology in cameras isn't…nearly equal to what can be done in software.…
You can sharpen in Lightroom Camera Raw, I am going to show you how to do a little…bit of sharpening.

In this course, Photoshop senior product manager Bryan O'Neil Hughes explores the art and science of raw-format processing in both Camera Raw and Lightroom. First, take a look at working with raw-format photos in Lightroom, and using the Develop module to improve contrast, color, and tone, which make the details in your images pop.
Then switch over to Camera Raw to optimize raw-format images as well as video. Bryan also draws important comparisons between Camera Raw 8 and Lightroom 5, and shows ways to employ Camera Raw as a filter to layers or Smart Objects in Photoshop CC.
