Optimizing Images in Camera Raw with Ed Freeman (One session)
- August 10, 2019
10:00 am - 1:00 pm
If you’re going to be performing major surgery on a photograph in Photoshop, the place to start is in Camera Raw. In fact, Camera Raw is such a powerful optimizing tool, you may not even NEED Photoshop!
We’ll be taking an in-depth look at Camera Raw’s unique tools, many of which perform even better on raw files than their Photoshop equivalents. Using a variety of seemingly unsalvageable pictures, we’ll explore fixing contrast and color, correcting perspective, dodging and burning, noise reduction and batch editing. Because you’re dealing with more data than you have in a Photoshop file, more drastic corrections are possible.
Students will come away with a fundamental understanding of a feature-rich application that can turn a bad picture into a good one, and a good picture into a great one.
This course will be taught in LACP’s digital lab. Students will have their own workstation equipped with a 27-inch iMac computer loaded with Photoshop CC. Bamboo Pen & Touch digital tablets will be available if needed. Although participants will be learning using Photoshop CC, the skills taught are cross-platform to earlier versions of Photoshop.
Dates: Saturday, August 10, 10 am – 1 pm
Enrollment Limit: 10 students
Skill/Experience Level: Students should be comfortable working with the Macintosh OS X operating system and have basic Photoshop experience.
