Next, I want to take a look at how we can open up our Raw files inside of Photoshop…as smart objects. In doing this, it gives us even more…flexibility so that we can tap into the Raw processing power here in Lightroom and…also in Photoshop. Let's begin by working with this…photograph here. You can find it in the folder portraits 1.…Or, for that matter, you can really select any raw file that you have in your library.…And what I want to do with this image is I want to convert it to black and white.…So here I'll navigate to the quick develop panel or, of course, we could go to the…develop panel as well. I use a preset, just to keep things simple.…
I'll go ahead and click on this pull down menu and choose B&W Presets, and select…B&W Look 1. In doing this, it will convert the image…to black and white. Alright.…Well, so far I kind of like that so what I want to do is open this file up in Photoshop.…To do that, we will navigate to Photo > Edit In > Smart Object in Photoshop.…In doing that, this will give us a lot of flexibility as you'll see in a moment.…
