First in a 4-part series showing a quick Photoshop editing session.
This tipcast covers choosing a raw image in Bridge and doing some global processing adjustments in Adobe Camera Raw. The image is then brought into Photoshop for some local adjustments and processing using adjustment layers.
(This tipcast was made with Adobe CS3 before the current version of ACR allowed localized adjustments and processing. The majority of the tipcast still applies though.)
