Adobe Camera Raw Essential Training Now Available on

I’m happy to announce that my new Adobe Camera Raw Essential Training is now available on!

Camera Raw is more than a plugin. It’s a powerful photo editing tool in its own right, capable of taking your photos from raw material to polished gems. In this course, Adobe evangelist Julieanne Kost takes you through all of Camera Raw’s capabilities, from fixing common but vexing problems to finding more creative uses for the program’s rich and nondestructive editing tools. Learn how to correct color, fix perspective problems, and enhance detail and contrast to make images come alive. Then find out how to make localized color corrections, custom black-and-white images, and even panoramas and HDR composites. If you’re interested in becoming more efficient in Camera Raw, Julieanne also includes a chapter on using presets, synchronization, and batch processing to automate some of your corrections.

Topics include:
• Comparing raw and JPEG files
• Correcting lens distortion and perspective correction
• Removing chromatic aberration
• Cropping and straightening a tilted horizon
• Fixing color cast with the White Balance tool
• Revealing shadow and highlight detail
• Sharpening and reducing noise
• Removing haze and adding clarity
• Making localized adjustments
• Converting to black and white
• Emulating film grain
• Adding vignettes
• Retouching portraits: skin, eyes, and teeth
• Automating corrections
• Merging images for panoramas or HDR images
