  1. I loved this! Thanks for the tips.

  2. You’re welcome… I figured a look over the shoulder might help put different commands in context.

  3. Richard does an EXCELLENT job, I’m going to look for more of your tutorials to share.

    The only additional tip I would give, is:

    If you have .jpg or .tif files you can also open them as Camera Raw by choosing File > Open and changing the FORMAT (at the bottom of the dialog) to Camera RAW (from tif or jpg). Now you will have access to all the dialogs shown in the movie above.

    Richard’s original image was shot as a Camera Raw already, so you don’t need this extra step to get to the Camera Raw dialog, it is the default. Many of my students don’t realize they can use the POWERFUL tools Richard showed on their “consumer class” images. These tricks really make a world of difference and you NEVER have to watch a progress bar.

    Again, WONDERFUL job Richard!
