    Beginner tips for raw images: 09 Make selective adjustments

    Adobe Camera Raw is the industry standard software for raw conversion, and it is available in Photoshop and Elements (and is also mirrored in Lightroom’s Develop module).

    Adjustments made in Adobe Camera Raw were limited before the arrival of Photoshop CS4, in that you could only apply them to the entire image.

    But with the introduction of the Graduated Filter and Adjustment Brush, Adobe Camera Raw suddenly became a whole lot more useful.

    In Adobe Camera Raw version 7 (which comes as standard with CS6) the Adjustment Brush and Graduated Filter tools have been improved with extra options to adjust white balance.

    This makes it easy to selectively correct white balance in order to warm or cool an image.
