The RAW file format used by digital cameras is essentially the raw data that a camera captures when it takes a photo. RAW
files allow the digital photographer to edit and manipulate their photos with less data loss than in other file formats (such
as JPEG). There are many RAW conversion tools, and it’s often a good idea to use more than one to get optimal results.

The Art of RAW Conversion shows digital photographers how to work with the RAW files generated by a digital
camera to produce the best possible image quality in finished photos. The authors (both experts in digital photography, file
processing, printing, and color management) describe the conversion tools used to enhance RAW files and maximize photo
quality. All techniques covered are based on practical experience and explained with step-by-step instructions, so that
readers will be able to apply what they learn and create their own fine art-quality photographs. Covers Adobe Photoshop CS
and other leading RAW converters.
