Description of this Book

Not long ago the Raw format was limited to high-end digital SLR cameras--meaning fine-art and professional photographers were just about the only people taking advantage of it. Not so today. Now that Raw capability is included on low-end dSLR's and some point-and-shoot cameras, shutterbugs of all stripes are eager to start taking advantage of RAW's greater editing flexibility to produce better images. This guide is the place to start. In these pages, veteran author Ben Long begins at the beginning, explaining exactly what Raw is and why photographers should use it. He then describes the theory, shooting, and image editing practices needed to work with Raw files. Ben also provides an overview of software used to convert raw files and a thorough explanation of how to use the latest versions of Photoshop and Photoshop Elements to edit Raw images. Some cool Camera Raw tricks, tips for shooting for Raw format, and a glossary of important terms round out the offering.
