Imagine being able to open any image in Photoshop CS5’s Camera Raw, and know exactly what to do first, what to do second, and how to take it all the way from Flat to Fabulous, just like a pro.
That’s the groundbreaking premise behind this course, from Photoshop User magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Scott Kelby (the world’s #1 bestselling Adobe Photoshop author), who rewrites the rules for teaching Photoshop by whittling the Raw photo correction process down to just the seven most important, most essential techniques. In this course, Scott reveals his Seven Point System for Camera Raw that not only breaks things down to just seven simple (yet powerful) techniques, but he’s found a proven method to make it really stick.
