Why You Should Be Using Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) with Photoshop Elements
Get the Most out of Every Raw Image
Does your camera have a raw mode? Are you using it? If so, then you will be doing a large portion of your image processing in Adobe Camera Raw (ACR), the program inside Elements that is specifically for processing raw camera files. The good news is that ACR is simple to use, and the results can be pretty amazing. It’s fair to say that once you are done processing your image in ACR, you may have very little left to do in the Editor.
