Join Bryan O'Neil Hughes for an in-depth discussion in this video Exercise files, part of Lightroom 5 and Photoshop: Working with Raw Photos (2013).
If you're a premium member of lynda.com, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. Here's how we've laid them out, within the exercise files folder, there's a JPEG images, Raw images and Video folder. For the Raw and JPEG images, you can simply target these from within Lightroom's import dialog and pull them in. Those files can either be passed off to Photoshop, or from within Photoshop, you can target these individual folders. You can use Bridge or Photoshop's File Open dialog. Within each of these, you'll find sub-folders, for instance in the JPEG images, there's one folder of panoramic photos, and another, with an image that has redeye it.
The third folder is for video, and this applies to just one of the videos within there. And you can use this, for that particular course. If you're a monthly member or annual member of lynda.com, you don't have access to the exercise files, but you can follow along from scratch with your own assets. Let's get started.
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.
