Join Taz Tally for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Color Correction in Adobe Camera Raw.
- If you have access to the exercise files for this course, go ahead and download them from lynda.com, and then go ahead and place them on a folder on your Desktop. You might want to, as I've done here, rename that folder to something, a name that makes logical sense to you. For instance, I've called this ACR Exercise Files for Adobe Camera Raw Exercise Files. Inside, and depending upon how your operating system's display is set up, you'll find these folders. And you'll see that the folders are organized by the chapters and by movie number. And inside, for instance in 02_01, when you look inside there you'll see the starting image that's used for that particular movie.
In this case the Grewingk Glacier Ski.cr2. In some of the folders, such as we go down here to 03_06, which is chapter 03, movie 06, you'll find a starting image, in this case Smiling Taz, and you'll also find an image Smiling Taz Color and Contrast Corrected.dng, which is the final version of the file. Final or corrected version. In some cases in some of the exercises I've provided you with the final file if I think it's going to be useful to you. So you can compare and contrast and look at the actual file without having to go back and look at it in the individual movie.
Now if you don't have access to the exercise files, of course you can follow along with your own images. All right, let's get started.
