In this 9 minute video i’ll show you how easy it is to correct even severely over or underexposed images using Adobe Camera RAW.
Here’s a condensed checklist of the video
- Set white balance either by selecting one of the pre-sets or by setting the color temperature and the tint manually. Alternatively use the White Balance tool in the upper tool bar (by selecting a neutral gray area)
- Set the white point with the Exposure slider (right tail of the histogram)
- Use the Recovery slider to recover lost highlights (if required)
- Use the Fill Light slider to open up and give details in dark shadows
- Use the Blacks slider to set the black point (left tail of the histogram)
- Use the Brightness slider to change the mid tones (overall brightness)
- Use the contrast slider to set contrast
- Use the Clarity slider to set mid tone contrast
- Use the saturation slider to increase/reduce saturation
- Use the Clarity slider to set saturation (smart saturation)
That’s it, you’ll see how incredibly easy it is to edit and even rescue badly exposed images using adobe camera RAW.
