Chapter 3. Adobe Camera Raw

When shooting in RAW you need software to convert the information captured by the sensor into a visible form. Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) began as a basic RAW converter, but has evolved into a comprehensive interface to optimize images. It enables you to modify the algorithms used to convert the images as well as to apply numerous adjustments both globally and locally. In fact, with many images we make most of our 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!
