Adobe Camera Raw help and info

  • 1. What is Adobe Camera Raw?

    Adobe Camera Raw is a free Photoshop plugin for Windows by Adobe. The tool offers easy and fast access to “raw” image formats within Photoshop. This image format is produced by several leading mid-range and professional digital cameras. Camera Raw has had several updates since its inception.

  • 4. What are “raw” images and why do they matter?

    “Raw” images are essentially digital equivalents of film negatives. These raw files provide artistic flexibility and control to create the results one wants from the pictures. JPG files usually don’t provide that artistic freedom. This is why tools such as Camera Raw is almost a must-have for professional photographers.

  • 5. Does Camera Raw preserve the raw file?

    The best thing about using Camera Raw is lossless edits. In other words, the RAW file remains unchanged, but if you happen to open the picture in Photoshop Elements later, the Elements tool would read the changes made using Camera Raw and automatically apply them. To undo the edits, the photo must be reopened in Camera Raw.

  • 6. What is a ‘snapshot’?

    A snapshot is a stored rendition of a picture that comprises the whole array of edits made till the snapshot was created. A snapshot basically records an image’s state any time. By making image snapshots at multiple times while editing, you would be able to compare and study the adjustments’ effects.

  • 7. Is it possible to save editing settings?

    Yes, you may reuse adjustments made to a picture. All the current image settings can be saved, or their subsets could be saved, as a fresh set of defaults or a preset. The default settings would apply to a particular model of camera, camera serial figure, or ISO setting.

  • 8. Where are Camera Raw settings stored?

    Camera Raw settings get stored in sidecar XMP file or database file. When you are done processing the DNG file, the settings get stored in DNG files itself. But they could also be stored in sidecar XMP files. JPEG and TIFF file settings get stored within the file always.

  • 9. What are workflow options?

    Workflow options ascertain image file settings that include color space, color bit depth, pixel dimensions and output sharpening. The options ascertain how the files get opened by Photoshop but not how the raw files get imported by After Effects.

  • 10. What are some of the workflow options settings?

    Workflow options settings include space (target color profile), depth (how the file opens in Photoshop: as 16-bpc or 8-bpc image), size (an image’s pixel dimensions when importing into Photoshop), resolution (printed image’s resolution), and sharpen for (applying output sharpening).
