Infinite Undo's in Adobe Camera Raw

Have you ever edited one of your pictures and then wondered the next day, "What was I thinking?" By that time, it was too late to revise your changes unless you started over completely.

Using Adobe Camera Raw means you can always go back and readjust the edits you made to a photo the next day, next week or next year. Regardless of whether you capture your images as JPEG or raw files in the camera, this "non-destructive" editing ability makes learning to use Camera Raw worth the effort.

Camera Raw is included in Photoshop Elements and Photoshop as well as the Develop module of Lightroom. So if you have one of these programs, you already own Camera Raw.

There's still time to join my Shooting & Processing Digital Camera Raw Files class starting October 26, 2017, at the Lifelong Learning Center in Missoula, Montana. Click this link to register.

P.S. You don't need to own a copy of the software to learn about it. All work is done on the school's Windows computers.
