    "How to make your Photographs POP with Adobe Camera RAW (ACR)"

    There is something for everyone, beginners, intermediate and advance users. Learn the ins and outs of ACR (Adobe Camera RAW). Expand your post-processing capabilities by learning how to make your images POP by processing your images in ACR. The Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) editor can be a very simple but useful tool for new photographers and for post-processing minimalists; they can make a few quick tweaks and enhance their photographs in a powerful but non-destructive manner. For more advanced users ACR can be a powerful RAW processer and/or a wonderful raw plug-in. HDR, panoramic, lens correction, noise reduction, dehaze - there is more to ACR than just adjusting exposure, shadows and highlights. Lightroom users will find that the ACR processor in Photoshop is virtually identical to the tools in Lightroom’s Develop module. Both LR and ACR utilize "parametric image editing", which means edits are saved as instructions/parameters in an xmp "sidecar" file -- pixels are not altered making the editing " non-destructive" (you can edit or undo it at any time). Saving the edits as instructions/parameters means that you are not actually changing the image but rather you are changing the way the software interprets the RAW data. ACR can also be used as a "plugin" (Photoshop CC CC2014, CC2105) which means that you can use the ACR filter on more than just RAW/DNG filetypes like TIFF and JPEG files - or on ANY layer in a Photoshop file and you can use ACR as a filter on images that are already open in Photoshop.
