Chapter 3. Adobe Camera Raw

Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) has been significantly improved in Photoshop CS4 and is the foundation of our workflow. Camera sensors capture information that needs to be converted to a form that we can see. Shooting in RAW gives us the chance to modify the algorithms used to convert the images. We now do most image adjustments within ACR, in its powerful and easy-to-use interface. What's more, we can even use ACR to adjust TIFF or JPEG files. We'll show you how to use ACR to adjust your images so that you're starting with the best possible files!
