Because RAW files remain virtually untouched by in-camera processing, working with them has given digital photographers greater flexibility and control during the editing process -- for those who are familiar enough with the format. Camera RAW, the plug in for Adobe Photoshop CS3, has emerged as one of the best and most familiar tools for editing RAW images, and the best way to master this workflow is with Photoshop CS3 RAW.

Award-winning author Mikkel Aaland explores the entire RAW process, from the practical reasons to shoot RAW, to managing the images with the new features of Bridge 2.0 navigation software, to processing your images with the new power of Adobe Camera RAW 4 and Photoshop CS3. The book's unique four-color, photograph-rich design helps you grasp the subject through visual instruction and clear explanation.Photoshop CS3 RAW focuses on Photoshop editing techniques, such as:

  • Automating RAW workflow
  • Correcting exposures
  • Extending exposure range
  • Manipulating grayscale
  • Working with the DNG open standard
Aaland helps you establish the best tool for each phase of your workflow, from managing shoots to perfecting photos. A digital photography pioneer and author of eight books, including O'Reilly's groundbreaking tutorial Photoshop Lightroom Adventure, Aaland's trademark ability to teach complicated topics on digital imaging with straightforward, easy-to-follow text makes this book a valuable learning tool for anyone serious about digital photography.

Required reading for professionals and dedicated photo hobbyists alike.

Comments about oreilly Photoshop CS3 RAW:

I have been shooting digital since 2003. all these years shunning raw coz of its size & my ignorance of software to be used.

before my fingers go calcified, what the heck, go where the pros and eagles roam. i started to shoot raw.

storage is cheap compared to 2003.

this book has guided me tru the stages, not treating me like an idiot all the way.

to the extent, i UNinstalled two other softwares and now use only CS3 (with its Bridge and Camera raw).

mentally, i feel younger again.

the only drawback is PS CS3 is expensive in Malaysia. i hv sold my motobike to buy it. when PS CS6 comes out ..... who wants to buy my kidney?

to the old folks out there, CS3 and chicks hv lots in common.
