  1. Camera RAW

  2. RAW Files • A RAW file is essentially a digital negative • RAW files cannot be used directly to print an image, they must be converted • Depending on what type of camera you use, your RAW file will have different extensions, i.e. .CR2 or .NEF • In order to convert your raw file to a printable image, you need to use a RAW utility such as Camera RAW

  3. Temperature and Tint • Temperature controls your color balance, also referred to as the temperature of the light • Tint refers to the color cast of the image

  4. Exposure • One of the most important tools in Camera Raw • Controls the exposure of the image • You don’t usually want to exceed +/- 1 stop in exposure adjustment or you risk losing image quality

  5. Recovery, Fill Light & Blacks • Recovery is a tool that is used to restore blown out highlights in an image • Fill light adds light to shadow areas in an attempt to restore detail • Blacks controls the intensity of the blacks in the image

  6. Brightness & Contrast • These two are very straightforward – Brightness controls the brightness of the image (not the same as exposure), while Contrast adds contrast to the image • However, there is a much more effective way to control contrast using the tone curve

  7. Clarity, Vibrance & Saturation • Clarity works in a similar way as contrast, but it works primarily to affect the midtones • Vibranceadjusts the color intensity of the image in a selective way, only affecting the muted colors and not clipping • Saturation, like Vibrance changes the color intensity, but does it uniformly across the whole image

  8. Tone Curve • This is an absolutely vital tool in Camera Raw. It is an effective way to add or remove contrast from select ranges. • You can adjust highlights, lights, darks & shadows
