Photoshop CS’s Camera Raw plug-in gives you unprecedented control over your digital images, but few photographers have much experience working with the Raw files their cameras generate. The solution: Bruce Fraser’s new book. Fraser covers all you need to know about Raw: file management, workflow, automation, but above all, the supercharged image editing it makes possible.
When should you resample? How much highlight detail can you really recover? How can the File Browser help you handle Raw images more efficiently? How do you recover lost settings? Fraser answers dozens of questions like these and provides dozens of tips, too, for everything from shadows to metadata. If you’re exploring Camera Raw, he’ll help you skip much of the trial-and-error and get you to real mastery -- fast. Bill Camarda
