Overview of Adobe Camera Raw CC for MacOS Benefits
Adobe CameraRaw. The Photoshop Camera Raw plugin became the latest must-have tool for professional photographers when it was released in February 2003. Applications that support it include Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, After Effects, and Bridge. Additionally, Adobe Lightroom is built upon the same powerful raw image processing technology that powers Adobe Camera Raw.
In addition, Adobe Camera Raw CC is not meant to be exclusively used with highly professional digital cameras, as it can also process the shots taken with midrange ones.
It comes with a downside, and it cannot be integrated into any version of Photoshop one might choose – it can only install each version onto a specific Photoshop edition. Hence, users need to check the compatibility before downloading and installing this graphic plugin.
Camera Raw (2.3 or later) supports raw files in the Digital Negative (DNG), a raw file format made available to the public by Adobe.
