Adobe Camera Raw is a software by Adobe that imports and processes ‘raw’ images in an easy and faster way. It’s capable of opening raw images without necessarily using Adobe Photoshop logarithms among other images formats such as JPEG, PNG and many more. The software enables the original raw file to remain undamaged when making any editing work.
The software is installed in the form of the plug-in to other adobes’ software such as Photoshop, After Effects, Photoshop Elements, and Bridge. It can support a wide range of cameras such as Epson, Apple, Kodak, Nokia, Olympus, Nikon, Samsung and many more. It is made with the same technology as the Adobe Photoshop logarithm in processing raw data; it just makes it more powerful.
In case you have purchased Photoshop CS6 before, you don’t have to buy this software. If you have not purchased before, you can buy the Adobe Camera Raw with the option of a free trial. It’s compatible with Windows Operating System and Mac OS.
