Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
"Shooting raw" may be the most radical change many photographers have faced since going digital. Philip Andrews will help you revamp your workflow and leverage Adobe's newest raw tools to maximize your quality, creativity, and control.

Andrews's Photoshop CS3: Essential Skills was one of the best Photoshop primers we've seen in years. He brings the same intelligence and clarity to this new book. He explains exactly what raw means to you (with specific scenarios for portrait, nature, and editorial photographers); then systematically walks through capture, download, processing, editing, printing, and file management.

You'll find detailed guidance for everything from adjusting tone and white balance to "shooting tethered." Andrews thoroughly covers Photoshop, Elements, Camera Raw, and Lightroom, but up-to-date Photoshop users may especially appreciate his tips for using CS3's new Smart Objects and grayscale converters. Whatever you want out of raw, this book will help you achieve it. Bill Camarda, from the February 2008 Read Only

From the Publisher
Quotes from Amazon reviews of Andrews et al./RAW Workflow from Capture to Archives:

"I am not an expert, but as someone trying to improve my skills with Raw, this book definitely covers the waterfront. I am very pleased. It has a very nice mix of text pictures and examples. Very easy to follow, and offers a wide choice of options for editors, setting up a workflow and covering the subject."

"You'll take all your pix in RAW after reading this. This excellent book presents a thorough, in-depth discussion of capturing, processing and manipulating images from digital cameras...the book is very well written, and makes both the camera and computer concepts and techniques accessible to a wide spectrum of readers, including experienced file photographers new to digital photography, casual digital photographers wanting to improve their camera and/or software skills, and Photoshop users who want to learn more about digital photography."
