Camera Raw Lightroom

2/14/2022by admin

RAW photo editing in Lightroom is necessary to make your photos look realistic. Saving your photos as RAW files, they will not look like what you see with your eyes. Photos your camera captures look different than how we see. This is especially so in high-contrast lighting. If you are using Photoshop CC, Camera Raw is now available as a Filter (in older versions you can click File open in Adobe Camera Raw). You still want to protect your photo, so you should create a copy of the original layer before working with Camera Raw if you aren't working with your file as a smart object. Lenses supported by Camera Raw Frequent updates provide support for the latest cameras as well as new features available in Adobe Photoshop CC and Lightroom CC. Camera Raw (2.3 or later) supports raw files in the Digital Negative (DNG), a raw file format made available to the public by Adobe.

For most of Lightroom’s life, if you shoot in Raw and set a Picture Style in your camera (Canon calls them ‘Picture Styles.’ Nikon calls them ‘Picture Controls,’ Sony calls them Creative Styles, and so on), Lightroom has ignored those picture styles you chose. The only way to keep that ‘Style’ you chose in camera was to shoot in JPEG, but there is a way to keep those styles and have Lightroom honor them even if you shoot in RAW. It’s actually a preference setting.

Head over Lightroom’s preference and then click on the Preset tab up at the top. Once you do that you’ll see a Raw Defaults section near the top, and from the “Master,” pop-up menu (where it says “Adobe Default” click and hold on that and choose ‘Camera Settings” as shown above.

That’s all there is to it. Now when you shoot in RAW and choose a ‘style’ in-camera, Lightroom will still honor it (unless, of course, Lightroom doesn’t have access to that particular style).

Hope you found that helpful, and here’s to a great week!
