Task 7 How to Work with Camera Raw Images

Camera raw images are 16-bit image files saved from professional and semiprofessional digital cameras. When you open one of these raw images, Photoshop launches a separate window that applies tone and sharpness corrections to the raw data as the file is opened, allowing you to save the result as a separate file. This capability enables you to explore and push the limits of the extended 16-bit file depth while preserving the original data values. Note that the controls for raw images are extensive. I won't attempt to explain all of them, but the steps that follow cover the majority of standard imaging corrections.

1. Open File

Click the Go to Bridge icon in the Options bar to launch Bridge. Navigate to the desired file and double-click its thumbnail to open it. If the file is a camera raw file, Photoshop automatically launches the Camera Raw window.
