Camera Raw is an extension located in Photoshop software filters. It allows you to have access to a complete interface to edit your images. This interface is quite similar to Lightroom, but the advantage is that you can directly edit your photos with this interface directly using Photoshop, in an efficient and intuitive way.
A Raw file cannot be edited. Changes made to the image are therefore not saved in the image itself. The Raw file has the raw data of your photos and that is why you will be able to independently correct each parameter. Most cameras generate a Raw file. Rest assured all the images in JPEG of your camera can open in Camera Raw because the software automatically generates an interpretation of the Raw file, updated in real time according to your settings. In this course we will also use images in JPEG format to improve a photo quickly and beautify a photo quickly without having to go through layers and longer settings in Photoshop, just use Camera Raw for effective modifications.
The interface is simple and presents itself with editing tools located at the top of the screen such as white balance, cropping and even red eyes. It is possible to retouch any photo like Lightroom does with this filter directly integrated into Photoshop. The whole remains intuitive and by mastering the various photo settings, it is possible to make the best possible improvements.
