A picture is worth a thousand words… A photo blog is both.

Jpeg in ACR ?

While having dinner today, Shantanu wanted to know :- how to open Jpeg files in ACR(thats Adobe Camera Raw)…hence,let me post the way here.

Basic Gyan :- Firstly, try to shoot in RAW ..its always better if you are having a DSLR.
Otherwise, if you are shooting in Jpeg(for reason known only to you and GOD), you can still open the jpeg pic in ACR.

The Advantage of opening Jpeg file in ACR/Raw editor :-

Do basic color correction,pop,saturation,level correction,etc in RAW editor itself. This is very similar to Lightroom. Add Vignette effect easily here rather than in Photo-shop.

Ok..here are the very simple steps.

1. Download ACR if you dont have. Default in Photoshop CS3,it will be there already.
2. Open Photoshop. Go to Edit –> Preferences –> File Handling –> Camera Raw Preferece in Jpeg Click that and say OK.
3. Reopen Photoshop and open a Jpeg pic…done !! Enjoy !!
