Tutorials for Photographers: ACR 1 – Open Image in Adobe Camera Raw

Hello everyone,

I had someone ask me to do a tutorial on Adobe Camera Raw (ACR).  As I started working on the video lesson I realized that ACR has a lot of information and some people may not want all of the information in one video. So I decided to make this a tutorial and have small videos for specific topics. This way you can learn each area of ACR at your own leisure.

I would also love to read your comments and suggestions so chime in if you have some time 🙂

Today’s video (above and below) is about opening your images in Adobe Camera Raw. I work on a bland boring image I shot in Arizona, the painted desert, and digitally process the image in ACR so I do NOT damage any pixel information. I show you how to open not only RAW images but Tiff and JPEG formats too. I also talk a bit about DNG files.

Some quick tips:

  • Always photograph in RAW if possible
  • Do NOT use auto white balance while photographing
  • While in ACR make sure you are using the latest version
  • Make sure your workflow is set to your preference
  • Always open image as a Smart Object so you can make changes later in ACR

Thank you for the emails on my videos; I do appreciate your input.  If you have a suggestion to send me go to my website and click on the contact tab and send me a message there.

Cheers,
Janice Sullivan
