i cant work out how to use raw files on pse11
Select a raw thumbnail in Organizer and click the Editor button on the bottom toolbar or go to a folder on your hard drive and right-click on a raw file and choose open in Adobe Photoshop Elements 11.
A raw file opens automatically in the camera raw dialog so you can use the sliders, e.g. white balance, contrast etc. Try pushing the highlights slider to the left and the shadows slider to the right to open up the tonal range of your raw image. You can also use those not available in the regular editor such as clarity and vibrance. Vibrance is a more subtle form of saturation. It’s good for boosting landscape images and pops the green and blue tones more than other colors.
In addition to the settings under the basic tab you have a detail tab (triangle symbol) and a calibration tab (camera symbol) where you can make further tweaks. The detail tab has tools for sharpening and noise reduction. The calibration tab has drop down presets for camera styles which you can experiment with but I always leave it set to Adobe Standard. For best results the Process should be 2012. Earlier process versions will give some different sliders in the basic tab such as fill light and recovery, but they are not as effective as the latest controls.
When you have finished your raw editing you can send the image into the regular editor. Ensure the dropdown menu for depth (at the bottom of the dialog) is set to 8 Bit/Channel as 16 bit editing in elements is very restricted. Then click the Open Image button (bottom right) and when your image opens in Expert Mode you can use the tools pallet to make any further adjustments you want. To create a jpeg use File >> Save As and choose jpeg from the file formats pull down list. There is nothing to save in a raw file. PSE remembers your slider settings next time you open the file.
