    So much has changed in Adobe Camera Raw and these tutorials really do make everything so much
    easier to understand. Thanks Colin

  2. Jeferson (verified owner)

    The clearest and easiest tutorial I have purchased from you so far. And it’s actually fun to learn the new and the better ways of doing things pre Photoshop. Thanks for sharing your knowledge worldwide and being such a sincere, great educator and innovator!

    I am a Photoshop Professional and have been using Photoshop since it first came out 30+ years ago. Colin’s Photoshop Cafe is the principal way I stay on top of the latest features and techniques. Thanks Colin.

    This is everything you need to know about using every tool in Adobe Camera Raw, taught by the very engaing Photoshop genius Colin Smith. The seven hours or so of tutorials went by very quickly. I enjoyed every minute, and will be going back to the lessons many more times in the future.

    I did actually think at first that I had a bit of a disappointment, that Colin didn’t do a deep lesson on advanced techniques using one particular tool (in my case, the Calibration tool), but then I realised that that’s just me. Somebody else might want to know deep advanced techniques for the Curves or the Colour grading tools for instance, and that would mean whole new lessons adding many more hours to the work, and getting away from the purpose of this tutorial, and I believe Colin does this in other videos anyway.

    If you want to know all about how to use Camera Raw (and indeed most of Lightroom as they have the same tools) then this video is for you. I loved it and highly recommend it.
