Art of RAW Conversion: How to Produce Art-Quality Photos with Adobe Photoshop CS2 and Leading RAW Converters

Buy
The RAW file format used by digital cameras is essentially the raw data that a camera captures when it takes a photo. RAW files allow the digital photographer to edit and manipulate their photos with less data loss than in other file formats (such as JPEG). There are many RAW conversion tools, and it's often a good idea to use more than one to get optimal results.

The Art of RAW Conversion shows digital photographers how to work with the RAW files generated by a digital camera to produce the best possible image quality in finished photos. The authors (both experts in digital photography, file processing, printing, and color management) describe the conversion tools used to enhance RAW files and maximize photo quality. All techniques covered are based on practical experience and explained with step-by-step instructions, so that readers will be able to apply what they learn and create their own fine art-quality photographs. Covers Adobe Photoshop CS and other leading RAW converters.

Ansel Adams never would have surrendered his negatives, but countless digital photographers surrender their images to their cameras built-in image converters. The Art of RAW Conversion, written by an expert in RAW photography, will show you how to regain creative control of your photos by working directly with the RAW file format.

This practical and beautifully illustrated guide explains the advantages of working with RAW files, which are the digital equivalent of film negatives, and then how to use RAW converters to create the best digital image from each shot. Mixing clear explanations with striking photographic examples, The Art of RAW Conversion covers today’s most popular and innovative RAW converters (such as Camera RAW, RawShooter, Lightroom, and Aperture) and how to get the best results from each.

Highlights include:
• Techniques for calibrating a digital camera to work with RAW files
• How to get the best results from the leading RAW converters and when to use each
• Tips for color to black-and-white conversion
• Coverage of basic color management and batch processing
• Sections on Apple’s Aperture and Adobe’s Lightroom

Whether you’re an amateur or a professional, The Art of RAW Conversion will take you beyond mere point-and-shoot photography, and show you how to achieve art-quality results with your digital camera.
