With Photoshop CS5's new ACR 6, and Lightroom 3, Adobe has introduced tools that have the power to completely change the way we shape our photography. Instead of working one image at a time, one step at a time, now the vast majority of our photographic finishing can be done quickly, elegantly and nondestructively in one place! - without even opening Photoshop! This includes such universal tasks as instant enhancing and dodging & burning, to background blurring, glamour retouching and even hand tinting! That's what ACR 6's and LR 3's Localized Correction tools and new processing engine have brought to yield this highly increased workflow. You will have to see these techniques in action to understand just how powerful they are.
