Before we go on with more adjustments, it's important to think about saving,…because the whole saving thing around RAW files can be confusing.…We've been editing this document in Photoshop, but when I look up at the name it…still says CR2, because this was originally a RAW file.…It was RAW data that was processed into colored pixels.…There is no color in a RAW file.…There is no actual visible pixel data in a RAW file.…It's just a very strange collection of data that has to be converted into…colored pixels, and that's what we have here is just a grid of colored pixels.…
It still got the name of the RAW file, but actually, this set the data right…here has not been saved anywhere.…If I close this document and don't save, I can't get back to this, because if I…open ApproachingStorm.CR2 again, well, that's my original RAW file.…Because of the XMP file, it will still have the adjustments I made in Camera…RAW, but it won't have any of these adjustment layers or anything.…So right now, I'm basically working with an unsaved document.…
