This deserves a bump - I love the pic and truly appreciate the effort of the tutorial.
I feel inspired to try it myself some day.

Native RAW files will open in ACR in Photoshop but you can open Jpg and Tif files as RAW files in CS4 (not sure about CS3 or earlier) just go file > Open As | and in the file types drop down select Camera RAW as teh file type. The Image will open in ACR at that point, when you are done your edits hold down the "SHIFT" key and the Open Image button will change to Open Object, from there it will open in photoshop as a smart object and from there you can just double click the layer icon to re-edit the image in ACR if needed as all the previous changes will still be there because using the smart objects it is non destructive.

Hopefully that is easy enough to follow...

I have CS4, and I'm trying to open a Jpg and then edit it in Adobe RAW... For some reason though, my "open as" does not have a drop down select option... I must be missing something...


Once you go File > Open as |

You should get a similar window with CS4 Ive highlighted the file type you want to change..

WOW what processing! Very cool :)
11/13/2009 05:02:13 PM · #20
Great tutorial. Great effect. Thanks for posting the details and steps.
11/13/2009 04:21:11 PM · #21
Wow, David -- when I said I'd like to see the before-and-after photos, I had no idea there was that much pp involved. I actually thought you had shot at night a long exposure and a moving light source creating the spiral. Well done!
11/13/2009 02:05:13 PM · #22
Thanks guys, its not really that difficult once you try it for your self and establish your own work flow. Like with me I have grown to LOVE layer masks and you can do some pretty cool stuff with them and apply them to almost any type of layer be it an image, adjustment layer, text...

Feel free to post questions of you like and Ill do my best to answer what I can...
11/13/2009 01:56:49 PM · #23
This is just amazing! I'll never be able to edit like that!
11/13/2009 01:46:43 PM · #24
Thanks for the tutorial. I am the farthest thing from a Photoshop guru and think I understood it, may even give a try to something like this. Excellent work!
11/13/2009 12:39:47 PM · #25
Thanks for the tutorial and for taking the time to do it. (And I bet it's not easy trying to explain!)
I've been looking to do something like this for a while, although I doubt it'll be this impressive!
Thanks again
