In this video I'd like to show you a really exciting change to Adobe Photoshop…CC, that allows you to treat raw files and non raw files in an entirely new way.…So, lets open a raw file as we've been doing, and we'll open that as an object.…And as we know, once the raw file is in Photoshop as a smart object, we can pop…back into Camera Raw. But what if this were flattened and it…wasn't a smart object? In fact, what if this weren't a raw file…or a supported non-raw file? What if this were some esoteric format…that only Photoshop understood? Well, new to Photoshop CC is the ability…to open any file in the Camera rRw from directly within the application.…
But just to make things a little bit more interesting, let's do something that you…wouldn't normally do in Photoshop. Let's make a selective edit.…So, in this case I'm going to come up to color range, and by default it does a…great job of grabbing just this cactus here.…In fact what it's doing is it's grabbing the sky.…So, I'm going to invert that, and then what I'll do is, Cmd+C to copy it, Cmd+V…
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.
