djusting color and tone in Camera Raw might leave you with the feel ing that most of your work on an image is done — and sometimes it is. What you're actually accomplishing in Camera Raw is applying basic adjustments to an image that wasn't processed in the digital camera, preparing it for Photoshop (where you can go wild with it). Chances are the photo still needs some minor color and tonal tweaks — which is what this chapter is all about.

Organizing those tweaks into an efficient routine is what I call the overall-adjustments workflow: a fine-tuning of the color and tonal corrections made in Camera Raw, tailored to get the photos ready for output that has a specific profile — say, a Web site or that photo-quality glossy paper you're loading into your inkjet printer.
