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.

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.
