Learn a virtually foolproof method for working with negatives and optimizing raw images in this second edition of The Digital Negative: Raw Image Processing in Lightroom, Camera Raw, and Photoshop. The book, written by renowned photographer and bestselling author Jeff Schewe, teaches techniques for exposing and shooting in raw while also showing you how to develop a raw processing workflow. This updated edition includes content covering features added in Lightroom CC 2015.1, Camera Raw 9.2, and Photoshop CC 2015.2, including GPU acceleration, Radial Filters, Pano Merge, and more.

The book demonstrates how to use Lightroom and Camera Raw sharpening controls to maximize image quality and extract the best possible raw rendering of your digital negatives. Additionally, it teaches you how to take advantage of Photoshop to do what those two programs aren't equipped to do. This is a book about the essence of raw image processing, regardless of the imaging application employed. Instead of serving as just another Lightroom or Photoshop book, it shows how cross-application integration can yield better images than ever before.

Benefit from lessons on producing stunning color-to-B&W conversions and processing panoramic and HDR images. Accompanying sample photos provide inspiration and let you see the results you want, so you'll know when you've achieved them in your own work.
