Chapter 3. Using Camera Raw > Camera Raw Setup

Camera Raw Setup

The first order of business is to set up Camera Raw to make it work the way you want it to. To do that, you must open a raw image, because until you actually launch Camera Raw you can't do anything with it. Size the Camera Raw window by dragging the handle at the lower-right corner so that you can see a decent-sized image preview, with the controls conveniently placed. If most of your images are verticals, you may prefer a narrower Camera Raw window than if you mostly shoot horizontals. I like to size the Camera Raw window to fill the entire screen.

Preferences

Next, make sure that Camera Raw's Preferences are set to behave the way you want them to. There's no right or wrong answer to how the Preferences should be set other than that they should produce the behavior you want. You can open Camera Raw's Preferences either by choosing Preferences from the Camera Raw menu (Camera Raw must be set to Advanced mode) or on the Mac only, by choosing Camera Raw Preferences from the Photoshop menu (the command only appears when Camera Raw is open; see Figure 3-27).
