- Okay so now that we're moved…our Raw files and other files…into Lightroom's library…let's talk about some general best practices…and housekeeping.…So throughout Lightroom on the left…you'll have quick settings…and on the right you'll have more detailed settings.…And all of these panels can be hidden…by clicking on the little disclosure triangle.…And what will happen is that will only show itself…when I mouse over now.…The reason I've hidden that on the left,…I don't need control of that…and I can see that many more of my images.…I'm going to do the same thing with the bottom…because I find that a bit redundant.…

First, take a look at converting raw-format photos to the DNG format in Lightroom and using its Develop module to improve their contrast, color, and tone. Then find out how to adapt your raw workflow when you're on the move—on a mobile device or simply migrating from an application like iPhoto or Aperture. Next, Bryan switches over to Photoshop and its powerful Camera Raw plugin to optimize raw-format images and video. Along the way, he draws important comparisons between Photoshop and Lightroom, ending with tips for round-tripping back to Lightroom and creating camera profiles to make sure you're getting the most rich and accurate results from both programs.
