QUOTE
In Photoshop CS4 for Photographers: Camera Raw, Chris Orwig enthusiastically explores a Photoshop plug-in that is a must-have for any serious photographer. By working on the digital negatives in Camera Raw, photographers have more creative control over their photos, and the original files remain intact. Chris demonstrates techniques for processing images by adjusting tone, contrast, highlights, and clarity. He also illustrates methods for sharpening images, controlling color saturation, and creating dynamic black-and-white images. With a detailed tour of the interface and control panels, Chris shows how Camera Raw is a one-of-a-kind creative resource. Exercise files accompany the course.
