Photoshop CS6 for Photographers: Camera Raw 7
Video duration: 0s 6h 17m Intermediate


This course provides in-depth training on Camera Raw 7, the Photoshop CS6 component that enables photographers to open and manipulate raw format images. Raw images are minimally processed in the camera; they're effectively the exact data recorded by the camera's sensor. Author Chris Orwig shows you how to control a raw image's appearance—exposure, shadow and highlight detail, color balance, and sharpness—with far more precision than is possible with JPEG images. The course also introduces the new workflow procedures and technical concepts and issues associated with raw content, so that photographers can best leverage this powerful format.

Topics include:
  • Comparing the raw, JPG, and TIFF formats
  • Converting or saving to the DNG format
  • Enhancing color and tone
  • Cropping and composing
  • Sharpening and noise reduction
  • Using the Camera Raw histogram
  • Batch editing
  • Correcting for under- and overexposure
  • Retouching blemishes
  • Making lens corrections
  • Calibrating your camera
  • Speeding up your workflow with actions
Photoshop Camera Raw


- Welcome, my name is Chris Orwig. In this course, we're gonna focus in on Adobe Camera Raw. Adobe Camera Raw is a powerful application which allows us to make changes to our photographs in really quick and flexible ways. We'll start off by taking a look at our preferences. Then, we'll explore the interface, so that we can get familiar with Camera Raw. Next, we'll take a look at how we can open and save our photographs. We'll also explore how we can crop and recompose our pictures, how we can increase the clarity or the contrast or change the exposure or change the overall color temperature.

We'll look at how we can paint adjustments into specific areas of our photographs. We'll look at how we can make some corrections, like how we can remove distortion, or remove or add vignetting around the edges of our photographs. And, we'll also spend some time looking at how we can create some dramatic black-and-white conversions. Well, we'll be covering all of these topics and more, so, without further delay, let's begin.
