2. 1 How to Open Raw files in Adobe Camera Raw Master Adobe Camera Raw f~1: Welcome to this lecture. In this lecture, I will be showing you how you can open the row file in Adobe Camera Raw. If you have short, you are amazing in the camera raw format, then you must be having this file. If you are using the Nikon camera, it should be linear file. Or if you are using the Canon cameras than it should be lord CRB files. So if you have already installed the Adobe Bridge software over here, you can open and browse the files where it is situated. And by default, if I just double-click it, this file, it will open the Photoshop and it would launch this file in Adobe Camera Raw. Depends on the version of the camera you have installed on your system. For me, it is Camera Raw 8. And it would open it over here. And I can do all the editing over here. But in case you have not, sorry. In case you have not installed the Adobe Camera bridge, then what you can do, you can browse your files where it is situated and my case, it is over here. So what can I do? I can simply right-click with my mouse and select Open with if you are in window and browse open Adobe Photoshop, whichever version of Photoshop you have installed, that will be shown over here. And if it is not shown over here, choose default program, and it will allow you to browse the files. Then it must be on one of these lists. And if it is still not here, and you can check out the model options and then it will show you more options. But if it is still not there, then you can select this one, look for another app on this PC. And then you can manually browse the files. The program, which is installed like Adobe Photoshop CC 2015. And I can those as xy and press open. That way in this file will be opened in the camera TO, okay, So it will launch the camera raw program. That is one more way to open the profiles in the Adobe Photoshop. And that is by going to the File. Once you are in the Adobe Photoshop, well to the file and select Open and browse the file wherever it is situated. Let me browse over here, and suppose this is the file. I can just double-click it and it would launch in the Adobe Camera Raw. And then I can do the editing or light. But in case you have the JSON file and you want to use the camera raw filter over it to make the basic editing. And what you can do, you can, let me show you. You can open any file in Adobe Photoshop. Let say for example, this one. If you are using the Adobe Photoshop version CC or the later than it is over here on the filter list. What do the filter and select Camera Raw Filter. The shortcut keyboard command for the Camera Raw Filter is Shift Control eight. Alright, thank you so much. This is how we open the row files in the Adobe Camera Raw or the Adobe Photoshop for basic editing. All right, So thank you so much. See you in the next lecture. 3. 2 Understanding Zoom Hand White Balance Color Sample Tools & Target Adjustment Tools in F~1: Welcome to this lecture. I am in the bridge and I have just chosen this image for editing. I'll just double-click it. And it would open in the camera raw filter. And from here, I can do all the editing. Here is our toolbox. This is a zoom tool. I can zoom in for ten or right-click and I can choose 410%, 12%, 6% percent all fit in the view. Or this is the hand tool. If I commit a 100% and I can click and drag to the specific part of the image with this hand tool. And this is the color picker or white balance tool. I can click and choose a neutral color. And it would give me the appropriate white balance. Or if in case I choose the black color, I can get the exact or the proper white balance. All right. All you're going to use the white color also. Click white color. It will give you the balance or white balance. This next one is the color sample tool. You can select and sample the color. This can also be done. I'll clear it. Next is the target adjustment tool. This is very useful if you'll just click it and click on the area and you can drag upward. So you can make it lighter or darker. This way, if you drag your mouse down, it will make it darker. And if you drag your mouse up, it will make it lighter. Similarly, with this area, you can do this with any area of the image. Specifically, it is actually works based on the colors available on these part, where you click. And if you click and hold, you will find these options. This is the hue feel select. You can change the hue of this color. And this way also. If I want to change the hue of this T-shirt, then I can do that easily. 4. 3 Understanding Target Adjustment and Crop Tool in Adobe Camera Raw F~1: And it will click and hold. It will give you the another option is saturation. I can boost the saturation if I drag my mouse appalled by clicking on any color, if I drag it down, I can take away the saturation or that particular color. It is very good for clear creating some kind of a specific effect like this one where everything is black and white and only color visible is this one. All right, You can do that also. If I'll click and hold, now you get the next option is of luminance. You can make it lighter or darker this way. This affects the luminance, okay? Alright. The next option is of the crop tool. This is the crop tool. So you can select it and you can go anywhere on the image. And after that you can press Enter. And it would crop your image to that particular area wherever you have selected. So by pressing Control or Command jet, you can undo that. And further it will click and hold. It will give you another option that is one-to-one. So it will create the square. You can do that anytime or anywhere. And it will give you the scale. By pressing Control. You can undo it. Okay. Now, next option is to buy three or 93 or custom. You can also give the ratio the pixels, or you can choose the inches. Then by 15 and press Okay, and now you can click and drag. This is how it would give you the exact proportion. Alright? You can do that and now you can see the clear crop and it would clear it. And if you have saying this option Show Overlay, click, it will show you the overlay. Maybe want and clear. Okay. 5. 4 Understanding Straightening Tool Spot Removal Tool and Red Eye Tool in Adobe Camera Ra F~1: The next option is straightening tool. This is the straightening tool. Suppose if I want to straight on this line and this is little bit slanted at the moment. So I need to click and drag it upwards. And it will make this line straight. And if there is a need, it we'll call it also. Similarly with this one, I can use this tool to straighten this and press enter, and it will straighten it. Next is the Spot Removal tool. And you can select it and as it shows the name itself suggest you can click and remove the sports. It basically how it works. First, this is the area which is where the sport is. And this is the area where you want to take the sample from. It will take the pixels from this area and it would be pasting it over here to remove that spot or if I press it, break it here. You can see it had made a copy of these birds over here. So this is how it works. It's very simple and easy to use, very handy tool. Next is the red eye removal tool. In case sometimes when we take the portrait and use the flesh, we get the red eye. So you can click and click on the eye and you can remove that. 6. 5 Understanding Adjustment Brush Tool and Graduated Filter Tool in Adobe Camera Raw f~1: Next is the adjustment brush tool. You can select the adjustment and you can paint it anywhere. Like all this area. It will give you all these options. Here. It would create a pin. Hover, your mouse or this, or the center of the spin. It will show you where this brush is affecting. That means, where is the mask of this brush is available? It would give you all these options over here so you can selectively make its temperature cooler or warmer. You can change the tint of this. You can change the exposure. If you want to. You can change the contrast. And it would only affect this area wherever you have painted. And you want to change highlights, shadows, saturations, sharpness, noise reduction, model reduction difference. So it gives you all these options. You can do that. And if you check this one, show mask, it will show you where it is affecting or your mask or wherever you have painted. And suppose if you want to make the same agents student to another area, you can simply then with the same brush over here. And it would give you the same adjustment. Modern case you want to the different adjustments or new adjustment on another area than what you need to do if you need to select the new from here. And then you can paint anywhere, then you can change the settings from there. The next option is off graduated filter. You can select it. You can click and drag. Suppose for the sky. You can make the adjustments from here. Like you want to change the temperature, you can change it. You can change the exposure. Contrast highlights. All these options are available. You can do that with the graduated filter tool. If you want to make another one, you can click and drag. Click and drag, and each one has a different pen. That means you can apply different adjustment to the different areas. And that's where the easy and faster way to do that. All right? Similarly with this one, you can do that. You want lesser exposure or the contrast. You want to change the temperature, then you can do that also. 7. 6 Understanding Radial filter Tool Preference and Rotation Tool in Adobe Camera Raw f~1: Next one is the radial filter. Let me first undo all these things. You can simply click or press Delete on your keyboard to remove that particular graduated filter. And next is this radial filter. Radial filter is similar to the graduated filter, but it is actually works this way as it creates a radial on particular on your image wherever you draw that circle. And it would affect the area based on the option chosen over here. If you have chosen the outside, it is going to affect the outside of the area. If you have choose an insight, it will affect the area of the inside. You can change it further. If you want the sharper or the blending or the more fiddling area, so that becomes very smooth, then you can increase the freedom to 100%. And if I drag it back to 0, you can see that it has created this sharp circle, which is not good. But you can do that also. You have all these options available over here. All right? So you can take the advantage of this one also, or creating or focusing on one particular subject. That is really a wonderful way of doing it. You can do that also. The next one is open preference dialogue. Here you can select all these settings, but I will suggest to not touch it. Okay. Next one is the rotate 90 degree counterclockwise. If unselect, it will rotate this image 90 degrees counterclockwise. And if you will select this one, it will rotate it clockwise, 90 degree. And if we again pass it, it will again rotate it. And it will keep on rotating until you stop. From here. You can check the preview of before and after the adjustments you have applied over here. If you want to make it full screen, you can click this one and it will go fullscreen. The shortcut keyboard for going full screen or the window screen is the press F. If you press F on your keyboard, it will make it fullscreen. Or if you'll again press it, it will make it a window. Alright, so this was the basic toolbox of the Camera Raw within the camera roll. Thank you so much. In the next lecture we'll be getting introduced ourself with these ones, these options over here, basic than tone curves and all that.
