Get creative with ACR in our great Reader Challenge
Every issue of Practical Photoshop features a task to create something special based on the techniques you’ve learnt each month. For our latest Reader Challenge, we want you to stretch the boundaries of what’s possible within Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) to create a finished image using only ACR itself.
Read our feature on page 24 of Issue 17 and see our five top tips below to get an idea of the kind of work we’re looking for in your images. The subject matter is completely up to you, and the further the final image is from the original unedited version, the better.
Our favourite images will be featured in Issue 20, which goes on sale on 15 November, 2012. The closing date for entries is 24 October, 2012. The overall winner walks away with a copy of the superb Tiffen Dfx 3.0.
What you can win
In addition to featuring the best image in Practical Photoshop, you’ll also bag a copy of the Tiffen Dfx 3.0 filter suite worth $229 (approximately £145). Tiffen Dfx 3.0 has 125 individual filters that simulate 2000+ Tiffen glass camera filters, specialised lenses, optical lab processes and film grain types. Visit Tiffen’s website at www.tiffensoftware.com for more information.
How to enter
Process one of your own Raw files in Adobe Camera Raw, then open the image in Photoshop and save it as a JPEG without doing anything else to it. Send the JPEG to us using the instructions below. If you win, we’ll ask you to provide the Raw file so that we can verify that Photoshop wasn’t used.
Enter by email to: email@example.com or by sending a CD to:
Future Publishing, 30 Monmouth Street, Bath BA1 2BW.
Give your image a title, supply a headshot and 80 words to describe what you did, and tell us the version of ACR you used. The closing date is 24 October, 2012.
