In this video tutorial I'm going to show you a variety of cool techniques to enhance your sunset images fully in Camera Raw. The main idea is to increase the warm color without losing realism, and for that I will apply a number of general effects (to the image as a whole), and some specific effects to certain parts of the image.

Tutorial Overview

In this video tutorial, we'll be covering the following:

  • Loading the image into Camera RAW
  • Applying general effects to the overall image - temperature, tint, recovery, fill light etc.
  • Working with individual parts of the image, and using the adjustments brush
  • Finalising the image with camera calibration and colour correction
