- Let's further explore our image editing adjustments,…and I'm gonna work on Fruit-N-Flowers here.…I think it's a fun shot to play with…some of these tools.…You notice it's a RAW file already.…That's good.…So I'll go to Edit.…Now just a little shortcut.…If I wanted to switch to JPEG,…another way to do it once I'm in Edit mode…is to hold down the Control key, click,…and I get the popup menu,…and I could switch to JPEG.…I don't want to.…I want to work in RAW so I'm gonna hold down…Control again and go back to RAW.…
But this is another way to do it.…It's kinda handy, pretty fast.…But let's go to Adjust right here.…So I want more oomph here.…This looks like it has potential,…but I think there's even more in there…we can pull out.…So let's just start with our auto adjustments…on both color and light.…And that gives us a little more.…Now before I showed you holding down the M key…to go back to the master,…but you can also look at individual adjustment.…
You can turn individual adjustments on and off…by just tapping on the blue circle there…
