Many photographers edit their photos by opening up Adobe Photoshop and go straight to work on their images. Making Photoshop layers and masks takes time, requires much effort and skill. If you enjoy the speed and ease of working in Adobe Lightroom to make your non-destructive edits which still allow you to return the image to its original state inside of Photoshop; that would be highly desirable. Imagine performing 90% of your edits without the burden of layers and masks. If you long for that, Adobe Camera RAW is for you. Camera RAW is included inside the Photoshop program and most photographers don’t take advantage of its power and speed. By the way, Lightroom users will still benefit from attending this program as Lightroom and Adobe Camera RAW use exactly the same engine to power this program. This will empower and speed up your editing work flow.
