Adobe Camera Raw is one of the most powerful Photoshop plugins for processing raw images. Raw or RAW files are a type of images that have not been manipulated and are the best option for editing in graphics software. Phone cameras and even still cameras usually do some preliminary processing on the image while recording images, which in most cases damages the texture of the photo. For this reason, advanced cameras usually save images in Raw format so that all image details can be recorded and photographers can edit them with a more open hand. Using this plugin, users can edit all kinds of raw images and then convert them to the desired format for other programs.
You can easily perform actions such as cropping the image, rotating it, changing the contrast and brightness of the image, adjusting the color and many other tasks. This program supports raw images from various Canon, Samsung, Sony, Sigma, Casio, Nikon, etc. cameras. With this plugin, it is possible to remove noise from the image without side effects or change in its quality, which you may have rarely seen in other graphics software. In addition to Photoshop, this plugin is also compatible and usable with Photoshop Elements, After Effects, and Bridge. Adobe Camera Raw was first released by Adobe in 2003, and since then it has become one of the most important programs in the professional photographer’s toolbox.
