Learn the best ways to work with raw-format photos in Lightroom and Photoshop, and see how to apply Camera Raw to a wide variety of formats—even video.
- [Voiceover] Hi, I'm Bryan O'Neil Hughes, and I'd like to welcome you to Working with Raw-Format Photos in Lightroom and Photoshop. In this course, we'll take a look at the workflow, and how to get the most out of your Raw files in both Lightroom and Photoshop. Starting in Lightroom, we'll talk about best practices for converting your files to DNG and some of the secrets of that format. We'll walk through the develop module, from its basic tools to its much more detailed and hidden functionality. And then we'll talk about where Photoshop comes in, moving files over to Photoshop, and some of the unique things that Photoshop can do.
We'll talk about Camera Raw and some of the similarities and differences between it and Lightroom's develop module. We'll talk about some hidden tricks in Camera Raw, some things you can only do in Photoshop, the exciting new Camera Raw filter in Photoshop, and even a few things I didn't know you could do in Photoshop with Raw files. We'll be covering all these features, plus plenty of other tools and techniques. Now, let's get started with Working with Raw-Format Photos in Lightroom and Photoshop.
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.
