Photoshop is more than a feature-packed graphic processor and editor, as its functions can be constantly expanded due to third-party extensions. Such an addon is Camera Raw, an Adobe product that is meant to allow everyone to use Photoshop for processing raw formats, including DNG.

Due to this extension, users can not only edit raw images, but they can also convert them to other formats that are widely supported by other apps. Photographers finally get the possibility to work directly on their shots, thus making sure the original capture is not distorted in any way.

One can apply artistic effects to their photographs, or perform basic editing, such as crop, cut, rotate or tilt, depending on the result they want to obtain.

Furthermore, Adobe Camera Raw supports a wide range of cameras, to allow as many people as possible to process their raw images with ease, regardless if they use Cannon, Kodak, Olympus, Konica Minolta, Samsung, Ricoh, Leaf, Contax, Hasselblad, Panasonic, Sony, Sigma, Casio, Leica, Nikon, Fujifilm, Pentax or Mamiya cameras.

In addition, Adobe Camera Raw is not meant to be exclusively used with highly professional digital cameras, as the shots taken with midrange ones can also be processed.

Adobe Camera Raw comes with a downside, it cannot be integrated into any version of Photoshop one might choose - each version can only be installed onto a certain Photoshop edition, so users need to check the compatibility before downloading and installing this graphic plugin.

The camera raw functionality in Adobe Photoshop software provides fast and easy access within Photoshop to the "raw" image formats produced by many leading professional and midrange digital cameras.

By working with these "digital negatives," you can achieve the results you want with greater artistic control and flexibility while still maintaining the original "raw" files.

The Photoshop Camera Raw plug-in became the latest must-have tool for professional photographers when it was released in February 2003. Camera Raw has been updated to support more cameras and include more features and is available as part of Photoshop.

With Photoshop you get not only the latest camera raw plug-in, but also the full range of exciting new features that are part of this release.

The Photoshop Camera Raw plug-in now also supports raw files in the DNG format.

What's new in Adobe Camera Raw 8.5 RC 1:

Modify Graduated and Radial Filter masks with a brush:
After adding or selecting a Graduated or Radial Filter instance, click the new 'Brush' mode (next to existing 'New' and 'Edit' mode buttons) to reveal brush controls that allow you to modify the selected mask.
Use the 'Brush +' and 'Brush -' icon buttons in the brush controls pane to add to or erase from the selected mask.
Press the 'Clear' button to remove all brush modifications from the currently selected mask.
When a Graduated or Radial Filter instance is selected, Shift-K can be used to enter and leave brush modification mode.
Mask visualization is now available for the Graduated and Radial Filters. Use the Mask checkbox at the bottom of the Local Corrections pane or press 'Y' to toggle the mask overlay.
Added new Per-Panel Preview default toggle:
If the current panel's settings are not the ACR defaults, clicking the new Per-panel Toggle Button will reset the panel to the ACR defaults.
Clicking the button again will restore the previous settings.
This is a standalone feature, separate from the new Preview controls
The changes are applied to the main view; if you have both the Before and After panes visible, changes will appear in the After pane.

Bug Fixes:
Fixed issue with Fujifilm X-T1 raw images appearing too bright at high ISO settings when using Dynamic Range 200% and 400%. Unfortunately, this fix may affect the appearance of existing images captured with this combination of settings. It is recommended that you (1) purge the Camera Raw cache via the Camera Raw Preferences dialog, and (2) review images shot at ISO settings higher than 1600 for unexpected brightness changes.
Fixed image quality issue (noisy result) when applying spot healing to floating-point (HDR) images.
Fixed issue with reading lossless compressed Nikon raw files (NEF files) from the camera models listed below. Previously, some images could be read but would appear as random noise, whereas attempting to open others would result in an error dialog. You will need to purge your Camera Raw cache via the Camera Raw Preferences dialog.
