I mentioned before that you have the same features and functionality in the Camera…Raw plug-in that you do in Lightroom's Develop module.…But I want to show you some work flow differences and how to maximize them in…the Camera Raw plug-in. There are some things that are hard to…find, but really powerful. So let's open a raw file, and let's start…with Preferences. If you were to look around for Preferences…here, you wouldn't be able to find them. You'd look through your different menu and…you'd have a really tough time figuring out where Camera Raw's preferences are.…They're not anywhere up here. They're actually this button right here.…
And this is where you'll find the file handling for non raw files that we…mentioned before.

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.
