- Welcome, my name is Chris Orwig, and I'll be your host and guide in this course which is part of our Photoshop for Photographers series. And in this installment we'll be focusing in on Adobe Camera Raw. You know Camera Raw is a powerful and helpful tool in any digital photographic workflow. You can think of it as the starting point for perfecting your photographs. In this installment, we'll be moving beyond the fundamentals in order to cover some more intermediate and advanced topics in Adobe Camera Raw. We'll look at how we can work with the Adjustment Brush, how we can use this tool to paint in adjustments to certain areas.

We'll also do some detail work like improving eyes or whitening teeth. And we'll look at how we can work with the Graduated Filter which allows us to improve a larger area of a photograph, or how we can use a circular adjustment tool which allows us to correct or change exposure in specific areas. We'll look at how we can remove distractions or blemishes, or how we can apply a split tone color effect to our pictures. And we'll also look at how we can make some important perspective corrections as well. So if you are ready to take your Camera Raw skills to the next level, well, let's begin.
