Explaining color and tonality Adjusting color

Understanding white balance and saturation Making tonal adjustments Evaluating images

J\ s you can probably tell by now, I'm a huge fan of Camera Raw and

Photoshop. It rates right up there with football, big lenses, ice cream, and good science fiction on TV. (Live long and prosper!) Though you can do some amazing things with Camera Raw and Photoshop, the key to really getting the most out of your images is — first — to understand exposure, color, and tonality After you get those down, the rest becomes easier, and a lot more fun!

The purpose of this chapter isn't to dazzle you with technical terms and the scientific background of image sensors, light, and color. Instead, I explain the different color adjustments and then get into what the tools are for adjusting tonality. Understanding both color and tonality sorts out what tasks need to be done when processing images in Camera Raw, and fine-tuning your images in Photoshop.
