The RAW Develop filter is the first step to a great looking image. It offers precise controls and powerful adjustments. Since the RAW Develop filter has so many features, we decided to split the video into two so that you could digest the Adjust Panel and the Lens and Transform Panels separately. After all, we want to make sure you have great educational content that you can use in an easy-to-follow along format. Abba Shapiro will take you through each slider to help show you the results of the changes that are made to an image.
