Adobe Camera Raw - Retouching, HDRs, Panos and Video Enhancing Miracles! With Jack Davis

Most people know Adobe Camera Raw (like its cousin Lightroom) can optimize their images amazingly well, but they jump right into Photoshop for Retouching, Enhancing and Special Effects - not realizing there are now powerful features in ACR that allow a huge amount of  "polishing" of images to be done--with even more Quality, Flexibility and Mind-Bending Speed than if the same work was done in Photoshop. From HDR combining and tone-mapping, to panorama stitching and haze removal, to glamour skin softening, eye and teeth enhancing, skin color unifying and special effects like high key black & whites, selective hand tinting, cross-processing and even changing depth of field. They can all be done with the latest ACR quickly and easily - without ever using a single Layer! And now that ACR is a filter within Photoshop, it means all of this power can be used on ANYTHING that can be opened in Photoshop - including VIDEO! Join award-winning photographer and author Jack Davis for this session that is sure to inspire and empower you with the creative possibilities within our beloved Camera Raw!
