    How true! The latest attempt to sell my father's home fell thru because the buyer agreed to the price, but the bank didn't even bother to appraise it. They looked at it on satellite and told them it wasn't worth that much. They told us it was worth less than the neighbor would have bought […]

  • Digital Workflow and PP • Re: Bought a Dell U2415 monitor January 22, 2017
    I am liking this new 24 inch monitor and working on photos is more of a pleasure using it. The size for me seems to be the sweet spot. Anything larger would be cumbersome for my workspace and more difficult to ship around Japan. It has factory calibration with a custom calibration report in the […]

    Thanks, Sury and Yildiz! I recall I was driving along a California highway one morning and saw this tree. I immediately pulled over and parked so I could take a photo. It was so brilliant and luminous I couldn't just drive by. Let's make this a Tree Photo thread! Please, anyone can post tree photos […]

Free download PDF guide to Adobe Camera Raw

You can open or download an excellent (slightly dated, unrevised since ACR 6.1 but finally translated into English from the original Italian by Francesco Marzoli) guide to all the deeper functions and tricks of efficient workflow using Adobe Bridge, Camera Raw, Lightroom and Photoshop from X-Rite:

http://www.xritephoto.com/Documents/Literature/EN/GuidaCameraRaw_en.pdf

This PDF instruction book obviously mentions the use of X-Rite’s ColorChecker Passport for calibrating cameras, that’s why they have sponsored the guide. But it goes far beyond this to explain with clarity all the controls of ACR, and many tips are given on how to use them best.

As an example, we didn’t know that Bridge could be forced to use Camera Raw without taking over Photoshop – meaning it can be run separately, allowing you to do other work in Photoshop while ACR does file conversion and saving from within Bridge alone.

You can load this guide into your iPad or other reading device. Just SAVE the target file, and ADD to your iTunes Bookstore Library, it will then be readable. For other devices simply save the PDF and transfer.
