About this tutorial

The Gry Garness Adobe Camera Raw Essentials tutorial is a must for those who want to process a folder of RAW files and for anyone confused about the differences in the Process Versions. It shows you which sliders to use for highlight clipping (maybe not the one you think it is!) and takes an image through a translation process through the versions, getting the best of the Adobe Camera Raw capabilities. We use Clipping Display and make a preset in the Workflow Options for previewing in CMYK, comparing this with the assigned RGB profile.

This tutorial focuses on fundamentals that affect all images and is shown on two entirely different image scenarios, including one that is severely underexposed. We use local corrections on one image and let the selective and global adjustments take care of the other. We also perform a Noise Reduction and apply some light grain. This is essential know-how for those who use Adobe Camera Raw with new and older files.
