Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Adobe Camera Raw to fix exposure for JPEG files, part of Editing GoPro HERO Photos and Videos with Lightroom and Photoshop.
- You can use the same sliders…in Lightroom on any type of image,…whether that be a JPEG or a raw file.…In this particular example, I've got both…JPEGs and raws from the same angle.…Let's go back here.…You see that we have the DNG file?…Well, here's the JPEG from the same camera.…The JPEG, by default, boosted the colors a bit.…Let's start by enabling the lens profile.…And it unwraps, so we're getting similar unwrapping there.…
And now we'll take advantage…of some of the overall controls.…Let's lift the exposure a little bit.…You see that the JPEG file tends…to blow out a lot more quickly.…The raw file, on the other hand,…handled that boost much smoother.…So I'll back that off instead,…recover the highlights a little bit,…lift the shadows, and try to follow up…with some clarity and saturation.…Putting the two together, the raw file…definitely held it together a bit longer.…
Let's go over here.…Enable that correction.…And then try to balance this out.…As I try to recover the highlights,…there's just not as much detail there to work with.…
Author Rich Harrington starts with the basics: importing and organizing photos, correcting distortion, adjusting color and exposure, and getting ready for print. He then moves on to working with video: developing color and exposure with adjustment layers and presets, and then rendering out the adjustments for editing in another application. He wraps things up with a short, fun tutorial on assembling a time-lapse sequence. Start watching and learn the skills you need to get the best-looking footage from the GoPro and other action cameras.
