Camera Raw is a Photoshop plugin that lets you edit and enhance raw files from your digital camera, along with JPEG and TIFF files. If you’re unfamiliar with a raw file, it’s simply the unprocessed picture data from your digital camera.
Camera Raw uses non-destructive editing. It doesn’t alter the original picture file in case you want to revert back to it after you’ve finished editing. This plugin has been a must-have tool for photographers and should definitely be in your editing toolkit.
Camera Raw is where you do all of your initial processing work – setting the overall white balance, exposure, contrast, and color saturation, adding some initial sharpening, reducing noise, and more. In general, you can think of work in Camera Raw as global edits. It’s all about making the initial overall image look good.
A big advantage with Camera Raw is that you can easily edit multiple images at once, something that’s not possible with Photoshop.
