Domestika Basics · 5 courses included

A RAW file is a world of possibilities to edit and, in this Domestika Basics, you will learn to explore it with an extensive tour of the software Camera Raw, an Adobe suite tool that will allow you to import and improve Your images with great detail.

You will be accompanied during these 5 courses by photographer Núria Aguadé who, with more than fifteen years of experience in the world of photography, knows all the tricks and secrets of digital photography.

You will start by knowing the types of RAW that exist and where they store the settings. Then you will see the interface, menus and main tools of Camera Raw. You will learn to adjust exposure, contrast and color by following histogram information and apply these changes to a set of images, such as a batch.

Then you will enter the world of tools and image enhancement menus, such as perspective correction or stain removal, cropping tools, curves or lens correction, among others. You will practice with the noise reduction menus and the focus mask, both essential options for a clean and crisp finish.

Later, Núria will explain how to use selective adjustment tools (brushes and gradients) to be able to work light and dark areas separately and adjust the retouching to the needs of your images to get the most out of them.

Finally, we will see how to apply final color and black and white transformations, add vignetting or texture effects, and create presets. You will see how to export your photos in different formats and you will learn the differences between retouching an image to export it as a “final” JPG to be published on the web or process it to continue working with it in Adobe Photoshop.
