Chapter 13. CapturingImages: Starting Out Right

Chapter 13. CapturingImages: Starting Out Right

Ansel Adams often said that the key to getting a great print was to start with a great negative. Of course, even with great negatives he still did massive amounts of manipulation in the darkroom. It's the same in Photoshop. You may do lots of post-capture tweaking in Photoshop, but if you didn't start with a good image capture in the first place, you're unlikely to get great results from Photoshop.

We have split our discussion of capturing images into two chapters. If you shoot a digital camera using the camera's “raw” format, you may want to skip ahead to Chapter 14, Building a Digital Workflow, where we cover the new strategies and tactics made possible by the integration of the Camera Raw plug-in and the File Browser. However, if you shoot film, use a scanner, capture JPEG or TIFF on a digital one-shot camera, or use a three-shot or scanning back digital camera, you need the information in this chapter. And even if you're totally sold on a digital raw workflow, it's probably worth skimming through this chapter before delving into the inner workings of Camera Raw.
