lynda.com Press Release
lynda.com, the company specializing in self-paced career and computer training in digital media and design, today introduced Photoshop CS2: Mastering Camera Raw.
(PRWEB) November 4, 2006—In the world of digital photography, the raw image is the digital equivalent of a large-format negative. Working with these “digital negatives” allows photographers to have greater artistic control and flexibility during the image-editing process, while still maintaining the integrity of the original raw file. In Photoshop CS2: Mastering Camera Raw, best-selling author Deke McClelland teaches the key principles and techniques for mastering raw photography using the Adobe Camera Raw plug-in. From shooting, converting, and organizing raw files to developing and finalizing images using specialized commands, each capability of the Camera Raw plug-in is covered in depth. Viewers will explore all aspects of expert photographic manipulation using the plug-in with Adobe Photoshop.
“The future of digital photography lies in the raw format. As cameras and computers become powerful enough to support this highest-resolution format, digital photographers will need to learn new skills. There’s no better guide to this new frontier than best-selling Photoshop author Deke McClelland,” says Lynda Weinman, CEO of lynda.com.
Camera Raw was released by Adobe in February 2003. According to Adobe, this powerful plug-in has been updated to support more cameras and include more features, and is available as part of Adobe Photoshop CS2.
