In this workshop we learnt about the tools available in the Camera Raw function in Photoshop.

This is the image I worked with during this workshop.

The spot removal and red eye remover tools are also often useful, however not so much for images such as this.

The adjustment brush is probably one of the most useful tools available in Camera RAW as it enables you to adjust the exposure, brightness, contrast, saturation and sharpness of the parts of the image you use the brush on.
